After seemingly knocking their Milton Keynes show on the head, Showmasters have attempted to build on the “success” of their flagship summer event.
Although (for once) the event was quite quiet, and (downstairs at least) you could move around without wanting to punch people, there were still issues around seating etc. which did not help my back!
This was something that at previous week, Walker Stalker got right. They had manned seating areas for people with mobility issues and a dedicated quiet area. This meant that seating in cafes was freed up for others.
Also, busy guests placed near each other leading to bottlenecks!! This lead to lots of overcrowding at certain areas.
The guests I met were great. Billy Dee Williams, Denis Lawson, Greg Grunberg and Jessica Henwick, all from various Star Wars films (among other things).
SM get awesome guests. The best in the country to be honest, but if they don’t consider their client base a bit more they will eventually lose custom which will be a shame for fans.
