We are sorry to hear that but as we have said many times guests are part of the event not the whole event.

We are happy with the guests announced.

Telford is a smaller show to London so would have fewer guests.

Please do not post comments such as this in the actual guest thread as it is the wrong place.

I really enjoyed Warwick Davis' talk. He's really good at this sort of thing, good with the crowd and even came out and interacted. That's the sort of celebrity you want at these events. Hopefully he'll be at a future Expo, it'd be good to see him talk again. :)
