Jacquelline King is attending? Please say she will be there on the Saturday...

I didn't see her on the guest list for the show so would be v. happy if she was.

Edit: Found out 'sunday only', typical! Never mind...

How about Tippi Hedren.

She's doing shows again, AND has done UK shows before.

That would give this show, a bit of much needed 'wow' factor.

Please no more Emmerdale farmers :( :( :(

Already a vast improvement on Novembers show in my opinion, but it's still my dream to meet Asia Argento (Land of The Dead, XXX, Mother of Tears, Demons 2 & 3, Trauma) and Jeffrey Combs (Re-animator, The Frighteners, From Beyond, Star Trek Deep Space Nine), whether at this show or a future one!!

Seconded the Jeffrey Combs,Tippi Hedren and Asia Argento suggestions.
Can we please get Ingrid,Madeline,Caroline,Valerie,Martine and Yvonne for this show or the next!
Id love to see Yutte Stensgaard here but i guess itll never happen and of course Mr Lee is always wanted.

Im looking forward to this show with at least 5 guests ive wanted to get a sig off for an age and as a certain other has cancelled my local show in Manchester this spring/summer my hard earned this year is going into MEMORABILLIAs coffers.
Keep up the good work and i look forward to more plesant surprises.

I heard a couple of times on good authority that there would be primeval guests hopefully at memorabilia this march, after one of my autos came off the print and got effectivly destroyed after expo last year.
With only 3 weeks to go though and theres not even any hints of anything primeval happening this time around, so just wondering on a yes/no/maybe if anythings likely to come of it.

Im going to be there already, would just be nice to know so I can get some extra 8x10's or something.
Con-a-holic and proud!

I'd love to see a few more music based celebrities. Seeing Toyah Willcox a couple of years ago was great. We had Tiffany living just down the road not so long ago - pitty she was not invited. There are loads out there that the fans would love to meet I'm sure.
Also, while I love many of the older Bond celebrities it would be great to try and get some of the newer 'Bond Girls' (and guys) to attend as well.
Finally, I've just read much of the debate on the forum. I have no doubt that it is very difficult to 'cherry pick' celebrities to attend a show given clashes in commitments, costs, not wanting to meet fans, etc. I've been to the Memorabilia show virtually every time for the past few years and had a great time. Yes, I'd love to see some of my favourites such as the cast from Stargate, Stargate Atlantis, Heroes, 24, etc (by the way, the Tippi Hedren idea is really good, as is the Collinson twins) but you can't have everything.
Having said that, the March show's list looks great, with some of my favourites attending that I've met before and found have, through their real warmth, helped make a show, such as Amanda Barrie, Jenny Hanley and others. I'm really looking forward to the March show and think, particularly given this is early days since you took the show over, you are doing a great job.
I look forward to seeing the final list!! :D

I guess that's more or less it after the announcements today, i've never seen so many guests at an event (a great percentage of whom i've never heard of though)!! However, horror seems to be very under represented again. That's my last word on the matter but please consider this for future events.
The announcements of Jake Busey and Jack Coleman have made this worth the £16 entrance and £9 parking for me, but would have been nice to have had a few more horror faces present.

It may not be the last announcements as we are always in negotiations right up to the event.

We will look at Horror guests for the November event and if it works for the event and also for the guests I am sure that we will get some more Horror specific guests even though we do have a number already which obviously do not appeal to you but hopefully will to others.

The fact that there are number of people in attendance that you do not know should be a good thing as it means you will get to meet a wider mix of guests.

Janna Hill's no longer with us, unfortunately, and even though Lian-Shin is listed on the credits she apparently only voiced Harmony in one episode. The rest of the time it was Liz Morgan...

Kinggodzillak - The IMDb need to update their page for Janna Hill then. Thanks for replying.

Would have been great to have met Donald Grey in person. Captain Black's and the Mysterons's voice scared me when I was younger.

Great guests! I have been going to the Memorabilia for the last five years and this is the most guests i've seen for the spring since forever. Keep up the good work! Any chance of any Lost guests?

Well there are two guests Lost already.... KENNY BAKER and MARSHALL BELL - does that count :wink:

Anyway seriously - with just over a week to go are there going to be any last minute additions ?

Any of the cast of BSG (2000's) with it finishing, next week on British TV ? as I am sure there must be the DVD release coming out soon, of the last few episodes, and I sure that cast will be out and about, to push the DVD's / End of Series.... :?:

Star Trek, cast from over the years - with the 'new' film coming out in May ?

Any of the current DW cast, with the TV special due on TV in April (and soon after on DVD) ?
