    That list was from a comic trade site, a bit old, and seems to misplace several shops lol.

    There's a (fairly new) Forbidden Planet megastore at the Triangle in Bristol. Only a couple of minutes from my department at uni. :D

    *smacks head*
    I was just at Bristol, not only is there a FP Megastore, but also a Travelling Man further down the road, I'll add them asap.

    You missed the Fantasy Events in Bristol Princess, there were a few of us there ;)

    And you'll be in Bristol when the MK event is on lol, I think the events are dodging you :p
    The walk up to the Triangle from the centre of Bristol was fun, though I bet the others who were there don't agree with me lol. *runs away from Welshguy and Nige*

    The shop name suits at least one person who shops there then :p

    Princess, that's the one, the Hill of Doom? as it will now be known ;)

    On my holiday I discovered a nice little Sci-Fi and Fantasy shop in broadstairs called Time & Space.
    Looks like a good place to go if you like Dr Who and Lord of the Rings.

    They weren't particually well stocked on Star wars things, but I found a couple of good items.

    Also a good place to go if you like things like Warhammer.

    The Shopkeeper there was at LFCC as part of the 501st.



    I have also given them a couple of South Posters and Fliers, which may help the South recruit some people from that area.



    Time and Space
    82 High Street
    Broadstairs
