    I can’t believe some one else watches an episode a day!! Lol didn’t think anyone else was as on it as I…Convention needs to come to London

    We went to the convention I was a little disappointed, but what really concerned me was the health and safety. The chairs were set out in a way so as to make a barrier. This enabled a queuing system. People could then sit while waiting. That’s fine, however there were approximately 600 seat, while I was there there was about 400 people within this area.
    The problem was there was no safe evacuation route. Intact along one side there were chairs blocking to stop people jumping in.
    This is clearly not enough to carrying a safe egress even with no fire there would clearly be casualties from the panic that would arise. I’m not sure who was and would be responsible, and yes a large part of the blame would be with the sport centre as owners of the building.
    Next time and when ever your in any doubt contact the local fire service, for help and advise.
    There is always a way around it, so everyone can return home, and sometimes YES things go wrong, so never think ” it will never happen to me”

    I’m gonna give the most honest review.

    I’m easily pleased when it comes to OFAH as I love it so much.
    But this was an utter shambles.

    4hours atleast for an autograph? My time is more valuable than this sorry.

    £5 to enter a hall with 4 stalls full of tat I can buy online.
    A reliant which are not exactly rare and hard to get a picture with.
    The only real nice touch was the mock set of the Trotters lounge. But cost a fiver to have a picture in it which is steep for considering I had to use my own camera as theirs was broken by 1130am.

    Absolute mockery, promised so much delivered so little.

    This may seem harsh but is very true the day lacked organisation which with a little planning could easily be remedied.

    Yours gutted,

  5. Jane says:

    Went to 2010 convention with my husband, friend and her grand-daughter and we all had a great day. Queued for almost 5 hours and had to leave before we got to the front unfortunately but we will be there again next year. Can we suggest the Ricoh Arena in Coventry for a future venue – they have held conventions previously for Star Trek and Dr Who…

  6. Louise Hickson says:

    Very, Very disappointed. Queued for 2 hours and the queue had only moved slightly we left with no autographs and did not meet any of the stars. What a waste of time. Was supposed to have been a day out treat for my son he left in tears.!!!Paid fifteen pounds for the privelege of queueing for 2 hours.

    • Ben says:

      Well I went and loved it… I understand the queing was very frustrating,,, i qued for a total of 4 and a half hours and yes, it was tiring and frustrating but the actors were there all day right up till after pm, 3 hours after the scheduled end making sure that they met everyone who went,, what troopers!

      Im sorry to hear about you and your son left empty handed, it did howver say on the ticket that ques will be long etc, did you buy an express ticket?

  7. Jamie Lambert says:

    What can i say i went yesterday and had a blast i met everyone who was there . My only concern was we got there at 10.00 and i didn’t get to meet the stars until 4.30 so 6 and half hours queuing is not the best but i do understand that they talked to everyone and signed everything that we could carry so on the hole im happy p.s i did find out i could buy an express ticket witch would stop you going in the long queue so im defo going to do that next time xx

  8. Glenn says:

    Went today, been a OFAH fan since day one, saw that the convension was on and said that I need to go!

    To be honest was very disapointed with the whole thing! £5 to get in, not a problem, but when I got in it was really like a car boot sale,3-4 stands selling stuff.

    Massive queue for autographs which I was told that you need to purchase the picture for 2 free autographs. Heard someone saying that they had been in the queue for 2 hours and were not even half way through!

    I did enjoy the 2 actors on the set of the living room, but another £5 for that!

    Only the 3 wheeler, couple of pictures no other stuff from the show as promised.

    In all bit of a let down!

    Dear Sir,

    Do you still sell the bedside lamp – each time I have come to a convention you only had one for sale, this year I cannot make convention and wondered if you have any that I can buy on line.

    Many thanks

    Chris Sturt

  12. Abu says:

  14. lacey says:

    hi i am trying to find out to i need to buy an extra ticket if i bring my son along too he is only 1yr old??

  15. Mike@NH says:

    Bedford is to far to travel for me as I live in Glasgow.

    Could you maybe make it some where in the North of England, South West London or Glasgow? And during the school holidays would be good.

    When will the 2011 host city be announced??
