Memories of past Cons…..

Whilst having a sort out I came across a box full of old Con passes which triggered lots of (mostly) good memories. I don't have all my passes as some were nothing more than a paper band. I think the earliest one pictured is bottom left. Its for Rising Star #1 which was in either... Continue Reading →

LFCC

I've not been out much due to poor mental health but I decided to attend LFCC on the Friday for a couple of hours just because one of my childhood heroes was attending. Lee Majors AKA Steve Austin, The Six Million Dollar man, was there all weekend. Whilst waiting to meet him I had a... Continue Reading →

A Tale of Two Damiens

It's not something that is widely known about me but I am a big fan of stories with a religious plot. I don't mind if its an action/thriller type story, like The Messiah Code (Formerly known as The Miracle Strain)  by Michael Cordy or a detective/murder mystery like Messiah by Boris Starling which subsequently became...

London Film & Comic Con 2018

This was my first Showmasters event since 2016 as at this time last year I was in Belfast at a close friends' wedding. Previous events had been extremely busy. In the past I have been quite critical of the events, the amount of space used and amount of tickets sold. There have also been some... Continue Reading →

London Film & Comic Con 2016

LFCC has not been great the past few years (see previous posts) and I was wary about attending but nevertheless volunteered to help on the USS Iceni stand to raise money for charity. It seems Showmasters have finally listened! The layout this year was so much better than in previous years. They had actually hired... Continue Reading →

London Film and Comic Con Spring

After seemingly knocking their Milton Keynes show on the head, Showmasters have attempted to build on the "success" of their flagship summer event. Although (for once) the event was quite quiet, and (downstairs at least) you could move around without wanting to punch people, there were still issues around seating etc. which did not help...

LFCC 2015

Well, where to begin! This looked to be a promising event with so many great names on offer including Sigourney Weaver, Michael J Fox, Bill Pullman, Hayley Atwell etc. Whilst it was nice to meet them and see old friends, in all my 20+ years of attending cons I have never felt so unsafe in...

LFCC ’14

Showmasters hit the ground running earlier in the year by announcing a big guest....Stan Lee. Little did they realise the interest it would generate. Ticket sales shot up so much that different passes had to be created. Comic and regular. Leading up to the show itself, many more big names were added including Carrie Fisher... Continue Reading →

Winter LFCC

This wasn't really a new event, just an old event with a new name! In previous years it had been called The Entertainment Media Show but the name I think was a bit confusing. It was a quiet event in comparison to the summer con. Nevertheless, it was a good event. It was also the... Continue Reading →
