Unlikely. I'm sure tickets are selling well but the event has capacity for over 10,000 people! Plenty were available on the door last year (at a slightly higher price than advance tickets I might add).

Yes, Witchy is right. Tickets are still available. If they are available on the door then they will be £15 per day, so you are much better getting them in advance.

I'm pretty certain there will be at least one Vegeta cos-player who will happily shout that phrase out :lol:

I'm still definitely going and may have a spare ticket if anyone is interested PM me. Are we going to have a little meet up? thought it would be good as I've frequented this forum for a few years. Would be lovely to see people from here and of course be on the photo :D

We always do a shout out for RG forum members on the tannoy and do a group photo.

It doesn't happen at a set time, so just listen out for the tannoy announcement (although it was a tad quiet last year!)

If anyone wants a "fixed point" to arrange meetings at, i'll be there again with a cluster of computers running homebrew stuff. =-)

I found the tannoy in general to be pretty much inaudible last year sadly :( It may have just been me being in the wrong (loud) location at the time of all announcements though :lol:
