Brian Blessed and Flash at GFT 29/11/15 1600

I can't remember if we have a thread for this.

Anybody else going?

It'll be my first day back off the wagon.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Me and the wife shall be there. Do you have your tickets or are you picking them up from the box office? I have booked and paid but don't have possession.

I read the great man's book in advance of his appearance - genuinely funny throughout. Gonna be great!

If you get the chance, ask him if he's heard the good news about Flash.

That he saved the universe or that he saved every one of us?

I have my tickets.  I didn't invite the wife though - my little brother hopefully coming along.

Pints beforehand. Shall we say 2pm in the CCA bar? (Or Variety)

I picked up mine today. Man in the box office going too and he liked my Blessed impression. I pushed it and talked bout Flash appearing in the 'Ted' film but he didn't get the reference and it ended slightly awkwardly.

Aye, I'll be wearing a pink carnation and a pic up truck.

My poor thread. Forlorn and forgotten.

Well, despite some last minute panic about having to move house on Monday, I'll be there. With AN Other. What's the best mode of transport to get there?

As for the rendezvous point, I'm a Variety man myself but I guess we have Buttonman's health to consider. The CCA makes a nice halfway pitstop right enough.

Buttonman is strong like bull!

Promised the wife a drink a lunch beforehand but should make it for a drink.

Does anyone know the format? Is the Blessed talk moderated or is it questions from the audience? Are these to be posted in advance?

Hope he mentions 'Blackadder' which only got a sentence in his book.

Pretty sure it's moderated. Otherwise we'd be there until shutting time without even seeing the film.
