Wanted to go to this and the Winter London FCC show but I feel Showmasters are spreading the 'good' guests a little thin by doubling up on shows like that have this year.

You would have thought they would have made a big deal about it being in the convention centre but they don't mention it at all!! Any mention of Wolfie would badly affect attendance numbers

Will probably give it a miss (haven't been since it's been at the football ground). Planning to go to Thoughtbubble the following weekend.

Well in terms of guests this show blows Memorabilia away and it is all free so you would think people would be pouring into this one.
I can't see many people going specially to Memorabilia for the guest signings.

I agree with you in terms of signings - Memorabilia is very poor with a lot of repeat signers Red Dwarf (always there), Hannah Spearritt (at last show as well) and lots of bit part actors, unless there are some annoucements to come.

The problem for me with Collectormania is the 300 mile round trip. Even by Motorway, it's around three hours each way plus the cost of the fuel. Memorabilia is about half that but still works out too expensive Frown

You would be a lot better off on the train, if you order your tickets months in advance they really are cheap as chips.
If I do Milton Keynes from Wolverhampton it was £3.50 each way on the train but that was months ago, if I purchased them now it would be about £20 each way.

Wonder if there will be any new promos there ? I know that Umbrella Cards said that their P6 and P7 promos on Beauties of Vengeance would be out at UK shows before the end of 2013, and they are not out yet. P1-P3 were out in 2012, P4-P5 at UK shows earlier this year.

Not really an option, for various reasons planning more than a week or three ahead is about all I can manage. Months ahead just doesn't happen.

Highly doubtful I would have thought.
