Apart from Lee Majors and Virginia Hey, it's a poor showing for the 'big' stars Shake Head

Thanks to the 18 year upgrade of the District Line, I've got to leave home at 5.00am to get to Birmingham by 9.00am Frown

Announced a few more guests. Ian McElhinney, Eugene Simon. and Ian Beattie from Game of Thrones as well as Dina Meyer, Victoria Smurfit, and Merrin Dungey .

Also noticed that the website now has a bar graph for how many tickets have been sold and 98% of the Saturday early entry tickets are gone Eek .

Not sure why this would be, I don't see any must see guests or attractions (other than the famous double act of Wolfie and Harris Big Grin ) . Maybe they have heeded past complaints about overcrowding and cut the number of tickets available.

I am sure it is the cosplayers - This show (and memorabilia as a whole) is going more this way.

Sold out for early entry on Saturday now. Hope they make some kind of announcement regarding this as there are usually a lot of walk ups on the day that are not going to be happy otherwise.

Wonder how the increase in cosplayers is affecting business for stallholders. Can't think it's good news for card and memorabilia dealers.

I don't like cosplayers clogging up the aisles it hurts the dealers as people can't get to their tables and it clogs the aisles making it tough on people who are there to see what the dealers have they should be restricted to a certain area to solve this problem. Always been a complaint of mine. No issue with the cosplayers they are fun to see but they should not affect the shows as they do.

A number of new guests listed including:

Jemima Rooper (Sat only)
Andrew Lee Potts (Sat and Sun)
Fintan McKeown (Sat and Sun)

I have a favour to ask could someone who's going the Saturday get me Jemima Roopers autograph as I won't be there on the Saturday. I can paypal the money before the show.

Interesting they've just announced Liv Tyler for Sunday only when the Saturday early-bird has sold out and Sunday ticket sales are lagging Roll Eyes
