can   I   get   involved?

Yes we love fans to get involved in our events, email for more information.  

do  I  have to  pay  extra  for  special  guest  panels/q&A  sessions?

No. Special guest panels and Q&A sessions are included in the cost of your entry fee. We would advise you keep an eye on stage times and arrive early before the panel you would like to attend, as we cannot guarantee everyone will get a seat. Disabled, elderly or pregnant customers will have priority. 

does   the   venue   have   disabled   access?

The school grounds are accessible, although some grassy and gravel parts may be harder to traverse by wheelchair or crutch users. The school itself is a very old listed building so unfortunately does not have elevators - the upper floors are only accessible by stairs. 

what   is   your   weapons   policy?

Compliance to this policy is mandatory for everybody and no exceptions will be made. Anybody breaking these rules can have their tickets withdrawn with no refund offered. Prohibited items are;

  • Metal blades e.g. swords, razors, axes, and knives. Also corkscrews 
  • Real firearms, guns, rifles, or artillery.
  • Gas canisters
  • Heavy bats, paddles or clubs including wooden or metal baseball bats.
  • Bokken- a type of hard wooden (or toughened plastic) training sword.
  • Explosives and incendiary devices.
  • Working strung bows, crossbows, sharp arrows or bolts.
  • Protruding nails or other sharp items
  • Any other items restricted or prohibited from being carried in public by UK law

what do the ticket booking fees cover?

The 10% fee on general admission tickets covers firstly the card processing fees, and merchant charges the bank impose. The rest of the money goes towards a dedicated customer services team working 7 days a week manning call centres 12 hours per day for queries regarding peoples tickets.

On the day you will see very expensive scanning equipment which run off wifi which we have to get upgrade due to the amount of tickets to be scanned on the day, it also goes towards numerous tech staff to man these machines. The event does not gain any revenue from this and without rapidscan eticket equipment like this these events would not be possible to put on. The £1 charge on an auto and photo covers the merchant charge to the bank, and the £1 to print tickets off again covers the above. 

I   still   have   a   question!
