We def dont want people having to wait an hour to get in this time, the queues last time had to operate on a one in, one out policy due to the capacity of the room which is why it took so long to get in. Good news is that this time we can have about 7 times more people in the venue so all being well there should be much much less waiting to get in. Will have a couple of queues in the main entrance where you simply pay your quid, get a wristband on, get your floorplan, flyers and away you go to buy as much retro as your wallet can afford :-)

So, who all from here is going to this?

Looking forward to my day out in Leeds, will be there with the wife & kids. Although I'm probably not going to buy much I've just realised that I'm starting to acquire a modest little collection of Atari VCS carts, so if I see any loose ones that I don't have going cheap I'll be snapping them up! :D

Cool, your stuff is awesome :D , I'll certainly do the former. Although as the Mrs will be with me & she's already warned about bringing anything bulky home, so not promising I'm going to be able to do the latter!
