    Just off junction 25 of the M25, A10 turning. Follow signs for cheshunt / Grundy Park Leisure Centre.

    Linking to the FF-UK: South so if people from both groups want to go, you can co-ordinate -

    I thought I'd already done a thread for this, but then realised it was incorporated into the Jedi_Nat meet thread, so sorry for not giving the heads up sooner.

    Not sure if I will make it but I will keep my diary free for it. We might get some sneak preview info for CE during this one ;)

    Well London is The Capital !

    I live 100 miles away and I always make these events.

    Manchester is an easyish train ride away and well worth it.

    Aye it's not a bad journey - but then you have to get out to Cheshunt, which probably takes longer than getting into London lol

    It's also my hubby's birthday that day which is bad timing.

    But I've been to Cheshunt before and it's well worth going to.

    Bring your Husband then, it would be a double celebration!

    Cheshunt takes about 20-30 mins from London by train to get to

    Worth going to this just to see the props and the photos. I know the term "never before seen" has been overused, but the sort of things that appear at this show will blow away.

    And SM have announced that they would like to chat to fans about CE. On the SM forum is an announcement from The Boss that he looks forward to chatting with fans about what they would like to see at CE, to get fan input into the show.

    I think you should do the quiz Jamie. If you need any help just let me know, I am sure we can cobble something together.

    I am not sure that there is a plan for the event as such. I plan to get there sometime around 12-12.30ish. Should we arrange a time for people from FF-UK to meet up?
