CE: Who\'s Attending

If you are planning to go sign our register!

I'll go first - I'll be there for the whole event.

Now, who is next?

I plan to be there too.

Hopefully it will work out this time. I planned to be at c3 too, but had to cancel at last minute due some family stuff.

I'll be there, with family, representing this far side of Europe. I just hope the sky doesn't fall on my head in the meantime.

Count me in, too close to pass up. Pay £2,700 a year for a season ticket on the trains to London might as well use it at the weekend as well

Book a hotel? Crikey how long will this thing last? I'd like to go, but I thought it'd be a couple of days, say a Saturday and Sunday, and that both days would be similar.

I hoped to get an early train on the Saturday, and head back home the same evening.

Also I hope we can book tickets in this country, coz I'm stuck if with have to use a credit card and book with some American firm.

I thought this would be like Memorabilia at the NEC, but just for Star Wars stuff, or am I very wrong?

Hi, pocoyo_joe

The reason im gunna book is because i dont want to get up super early to make the drive up to London from Portsmouth, i can also get in earlier also.

I think the event will last about 4 days or so but there is no official word on that.

Re: CE: Who\'s Attending

Wow, four whole days!

Will there really be something different on all four days?

Will it be worth going for the whole show, or if you only went for 1 day would you see pretty much everything?

I'd have to stay over-night myself, but the trains to London are pretty good from Crewe (normally), but if it was worth staying for the whole shabang, well that would alter my plans.

Having never been to any of the Celebration thingys in the US (indeed I've never been to the US full-stop), I don't really know how they work. Are they like the comic convention in Mark Hamill's film Comic-Book the Movie? Coz that seemed an awful lot like Memorabilia to me, only bigger.

Re: CE: Who\'s Attending

If it's anything like Celebration III, you would never see the whole thing even with four days!!!

I do think this will be on a somewhat smaller scale though, so who knows.

If you have any questions about what happened at CIII just pm me and I'll be happy to answer them for you if I can.

I dunno, it's a whole 30 mins on the train for me, then there's the tube which can get real stuffy, I'll have to think this one over.

Want my advice, Neil? I think you shouldn't go at all. Such trouble to "just" see a bunch o' nerds drooling over some kidz'toyz called Star Wars, or whatever? Naawh...

Re: CE: Who\'s Attending

I am from Chicago, but I would really like to come. It would be my first time overseas so I would need a lot of help. I guess it all depends on if my dealer friend goes. He would pay for a lot of my trip if I work for him.

Sounds like it will be a lot of fun!

The US isn't all that different from the UK.

Sure, you guys drive on the wrong side of the road and prefer your beverages to be just above freezing but we are all one giant happy community after all.

Seriously though, there is hardly any culture shock when you travel accros the Atlantic. Most of the food, drink, clothing, stores, TV shows, restaurants, et al you are used are over here too. Our cars are smaller and driving in the UK might take a bit of getting over, but London has plenty of different forms of public transport that you'd never need put a foot on an accelerator peddle (that's what we call the gas pedal here).

[Edit: I have just started a CE: Not Just For Europeans thread to help people from outside of the Continent make their mind up.]

Count me in! I'll be there for sure! I live in Denmark and I can't afford going to C4 in LA, so this is a great opportunity for me!

This, I think, was one of Lucasfilm's reasons for putting a Celebration in the UK.

Huzzah!

Re: CE: Who\'s Attending

We are planning a trip to this convention, on the danish forum (where I'm still admin
). Expect some danish fans to show up, mostly female, as allways with events on our forum.

I do plan join them and be there too. If so, I would definatly like to meet some of my fella "Rebel Scumbags".

I will be there for sure! It would have been impossible for me to go to the U.S celebration and it is too close to miss now. Cant wait to see London again too!

Wow, maybe I would like to attend these other events also!

I think I am more excited about CE than C4, although I wish they weren't so close together.

Hehe. Those other events are not with RS, but the danish forum. When we have DVD maratons, attending conventions, or just meet up for a nerdy weekend, the women are almost allways in majority.
