Spring London Film and Comic Con – Nick Frost

This weekend was Spring London Film and Comic Con and I headed down on the Saturday to meet Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Attack the Block, Hot Fuzz etc) and catch up with some friends. The day started early with us catching the coach to London at around 5am so we could get in the queue early and have a better chance at meeting Nick Frost, it’s never guaranteed but we’ve never missed out on meeting someone we really wanted to yet (*touch wood*). Once we got to London it was a short tube ride from Victoria to West […]

Back to the Future

October 2015 was the time Marty McFly travelled to the future in Back to the Future part 2. Specifically on October 21st, which also happens to be Ryan’s birthday. I was lucky enough to attend the official 30th anniversary of Back to the Future reunion at London Film and Comic con this year, there was a lot of Back to the Future merchandise around (hoverboards (they didn’t hover though, so more like replica skateboards! Still cool though.), Marty’s jacket, Marty hats etc). Some stars of the films were there and we went to the Back to the Future talk. Got […]

Collectormania Milton Keynes 21

This past weekend (17th-18th May) was the 21st Collectormania at Milton Keynes and the 6th that I’ve been to. I went along on the Saturday with my family. The main draw for me was to meet Billy Boyd (Pippin from Lord of the Rings) and some World Snooker Champions: Mark Selby, Neil Robertson and Shaun Murphy. The day for me, started at 5.30am! We got to Milton Keynes at around 8am and qieued for the doors to open at 9am. As there is no charge to get in to this convention, it’s always a busy one. Once inside, we located […]

Convention Plans 2014

Birmingham When?: 22nd – 23rd March 2014 (I’m likely only attending on the Saturday) Where?: NEC, Birmingham Guest list: The […]

Winter is Coming

Winter is Coming – It’s definitely getting colder lately! The clocks went back last weekend (27th October) in the UK, so the days are shorter and it’s getting darker a lot earlier. 🙁 The thing I love about this time of year though is how colourful it is! Leaves changing colour, dropping from trees and going ‘crunch’ under foot. 🙂 I also love Halloween and fireworks! What I’m not loving is how Christmas seemed to start back in September this year! Haha. I don’t think about the ‘C’ word until after Halloween is over. This Halloween was spent, as previous […]
