I really wish I stood a chance at getting a ticket for the signing (its my first expo, and I'm a HUGE Merlin fan), but hopefully I'll still be able to attend the panel.

How many tickets will there be? Last year we were in the advance tickets queue and got in not too long after Expo opened, and still we didn't get tickets because there were only 150. If you can say how many tickets there will be, I can plan to be there earlier this time.

Can you confirm where I can get the tickets for the Merlin pannel please... you have stated that they can be given out at the information desk, however is this the same area that you hand the Expo ticket into or are they in different areas?

There are NO tickets to the Merlin Panel. You just go and enjoy. Seating is available for 800 people with standing room it is 1200.

The tickets at 10am are for the limited signing ONLY.

Which there will be an update on today as the guys are in the middle of shooting and we may have some times issues. More on the signing in about an hour.

I know we've been through this, but just to make sure - The tickets for the signing will definately start to be give out at 10am - Not before at 9am? So if you got an Advance Entry ticket and went straight to the desk there would be no tickets until 10am? Correct?

OK update from production. The cast are coming up Sat from Wales. They have rehearsals in the afternoon so must leave early. We are just so pleased that they can still make it

This means they will not have time to sit and sign.

So what they have suggested is, they will arrive with the mini posters already signed. If you collect a ticket from the info desk at or after 10am (subject to availability) you will get a signed mini poster.

I think its very good of them to have thought about it and done theirbest for everyone.

Awww this is a shame =( will still go though because they're awsome =D bet they're dissapointed too, katie and angel were saying last time how they'd love to actually join the event from our side for once, but then again so have a few of the other guests who have visited.

Damn, im so upset about this. Even though i'm grateful they thought of this and are just lovely for even coming, but i'm less bothered about the getting a signed item (i have loads) than actually talking to them for a few mins.

Just to clarify, does this mean they aren't going to sit at all after the panel and we just collect our signed item from somewhere, or they will sit but they'll move through everyone quickly because they'll hand out pre-signed items. I'm thinking its the first scenario but just wanted to make sure.

I'd also like to know when the tickets can be traded for the posters (before the panel? Some time after it?). And, if possible, how many posters. Still around the 200 mark?

It is really disappointing that they can't hang around because I was hoping to meet the cast and get their autographs this time. But I can understand and appreciate that if we want a series 3 it is important that they keep up with filming times. And it is really nice of them to send this alternative. Maybe another time, eh?
This post shall now fart in your general direction.

awww noooo, this would be just my luck. First time i've been able to come and see them here, and they can't sign. :(
Obviously we can understand the reasons behind it, we don't want to delay the filming of series 3 :)

I'm guessing that as they'll need to travel back to rehearsals in Wales, they will have to leave straight after the panel.

Fair play to them all for making the trip, at least four hours travelling and then having to do work after all that.

Of course it's dissapointing that we're not going to meet them but it can't be helped and a chance to see all four of them in the panel is certainly not possible anywhere else, thanks Expo for sorting again.

This is my first time attending the expo... is the information desk the same place where you queue up and buy the tickets for entry into expo? if not where abouts is the info desk?

Where is the panel for merlin - as I said above I've never been here before and I don't want to miss seeing them!!

The Info desk is directly inside the main hall. This is a different location to where you purchase tickets.

a guide to entry is on a different topic in the forum - as you havn't got a ticket yet - here is the info about where the ticket office and entry to the event is located.
If you want to purchase an Early Entry or General ticket on the day.

1) Enter Excel via the West entrance.
2) Go to the ticket processing hall. Door N1.
3) Follow the signs to Purchase/Buy Tickets.
4) Make your choice Early Entry (If available) or General Entry. Follow the signs.
5) Once you purchase your ticket proceed to the wristband collection point.
6) If you purchase Early Entry on the day you will then proceed to the relevant line if the show has not yet opened. On the day Early Entry must wait until the Advance Early Entry line has entered.
7) If you purchase General Entry on the day you will not enter until 11am. If the show has not yet opened you will be directed to the relevant line to await entry. If the show is open you will be directed to the show entrance of line if there is one. Door N4


The Merlin panel will be in the main hall in the expo theatre, the map in the show guide will show you where it is.

Road Trip! You can totally fit half the cast of Merlin in the back of a Nissan Micra.
My friends can get out.

well yesterday was very interesting. Lots of people saying different things reg the clearing of the hall, some saying they wont, same saying they will...
In the end they did..
even though myself and my friend Debbie where the 2nd people into the room, we were pushed out the way by other people who had not waited around for almost 3 hours just to see the panel...
so we ended up sitting behind these people.

The cast were great though.

one thing, the sound was really bad, i actually struggled to hear what they were saying sometimes, and the fact the stands right by the curtains where making SO MUCH NOISE it was hard to hear.

Maybe something can be done for future events, move the stands that have speakers etc away to the other side of the room, at least this way it wouldnt effect things so much.
