Jason Hobbs “I know it has been said before, but i have been coming to these events for years, in fact i was at the first ever one at the Nags Head Pub but this years by far has been the best so far.I was a little dubious about the cost and there were lots of moans on facebook about this, but i really think this is the way to go in the future.
I bought the Platinum Weekend ticket for £450 and although this is a lot of money i more than go my moneys worth. I got the following:
40 autographs on sat and 44 on sunday
limited print that was signed for free
FREE Framed David Jason Autograph worth £100
FREE limited deluxe book worth £45
photo shoot with all the celebs on Sat & Sun
upgrade frame worth £25
3 course Evening Meal with Wine with the celebrities
Priority queuing for photos and autographs
Free Quiz with prizes
Best of all not overcrowded and a very relaxed atmosphere for attendees and celebrities, which means we got more time to chat to them.
How can anyone say that all the above is not worth £450!
This is all thanks to Perry, Craig and all the staff that work hard to make sure we had a great time. My thanks especially go to Craig who although was always busy and running around like a looney he still had time to stop and help if needed!
I will definitely be there next year! Cheers Guys and Gals!”
Kelly Rebecca wildish “A great day”
John Sleath “Well what a brilliant day at The Oval courtesy of Only Fools and Horses. Thank you to Perry Aghajanoff, Keith Bishop, Craig Wood and many others for a fabulous time. THANKS to all the 11 actors and the Del and Uncle Albert lookalikes too.”
Lisa Edwards “What can i say about this years convention??? Perry, Craig, The team, The venue, Set up, Food, Value for money, Items for sale, The fans, And of course the actors.
The oval was a fantastic setting & the room was laid out perfect, even when not being up close getting things signed we were still close enough to be involved & interaction with the actors was amazing all day.
Food was too good! Dinner on saturday night was different class & i recommend anyone thinking about going next year to upgrade the ticket to platinum as the meet and mingle was incredible.
Value for money, I think i owe you some more, signed framed david jason picture, boxed deluxe edition book, 40, yes 40 signatures for the day, Felt bad going up but the actors were more than happy, Mug, Limited edition print, Photo in flat, Frame, Dinner & 3 course meal with the actors. BARGAIN!!
Met some fantastic people on my table & we really got talking during the quiz, & the items for sale like the program, props & photo opportunities was what made the weekend extra special.
The actors year after year sign for 8 hrs but this year was different because of the lower numbers which felt like we were not just there for a signature but was there to actually meet & get to know them on a more intimate level.
Every one I’m sure went away as happy as i did & can not wait for next year so get in early for your platinum ticket because i surely will as the value was incredible for what you got.
Sue holderness was my star of the weekend, Actually heard her say take another picture because that wasn’t good enough. WOW!”
Samantha Rose “Thanks for a fantastic first day at this year’s convention…. an overwhelming but exciting day. Meeting all the actors and actresses was just lovely Can’t WAIT to do it all again tomorrow… Here are just some of my pics I took along the way… A huge shout out to the organisers Myself aTanya Jonesnes are resting up for a full day tomorrow x”
Chris Hussey “I wish it was Sunday again wot amazing day”
Costa Stavrou “Just want to take a minute to congratulate Perry Aghajanoff, Craig Wood and everybody else involved in creating OFCON 2016 and making it so amazing. Loved every minute of the weekend. Was amazing from start to finish. Felt so much more relaxed, and everyone i spoke to seemed to agree. So hopefully it will be done in this way in years to come. The actors were very friendly and chatty as they always are and all seemed to be happy to pose for pics and chat to people. So nice seeing Pat Murray back and looking so well. If you didn’t go then you really missed out. Met so many lovely people which is what its all about. I know there were people who thought it was too expensive. All i can say to that is you get what you pay for, and it was really worth every penny. So once again thank you to everyone involved and hope it wasn’t too stressful for you. Roll on next year. I seriously cannot wait.”
Dale Cryer “Made the 500 mile round trip worthwhile , roll on next year”
Tanya Jones “Few pics from today’s convention…what a fab weekend it’s been….bring on next year’s convention “
Rory Jones “Just home from an absolutely phenomenal weekend at The Oval for the Only Fools Convention. The format was changed 2 a smaller, intimate but salubrious venue with less people but less queuing where interaction with the actors was much easier and calmer so u really got 2 chat more indepthly. I went for the Platinum Weekend which did put me back a few quid but was worth every single penny. Perry Aghajanoff deserves so much respect for what he does and i think after some of the posts i read after the announcement of the format he deserves so much credit as all he wants to do is provide us with a quality day and he did that in spades backed up by his team Craig Wood, Keith Bishop, Chris Mcneill and others. Cannot wait till next year but not sure if this year will be topped. Thank You ”

Dale cryer “I have to admit that when Perry , Craig and the rest of the team first told us about the new changes ( venue, prices, less tickets etc) for this years convention , I was a bit dubious and didn’t think it was a good idea, however after I’ve just been to today’s convention I hold my hands up to Perry and his team, it was excellent, the venue was spot on, and all the fans seemed to enjoy it, was great to meet friends old and new, and yet again the actors were friendly and polite, and would happily pose for photos , so I’m going to say a big thank you to all who made today a wonderful day, and I’ll see you all next year, you know it makes sense.”
