The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Is it possible to add Craig and Emma Thompson to the Sunday list? Craig is a UKCM member but didn't see this drop. He does Marine and his wife does a pilot. Could whoever deals with numbers advise asap please?

Location: HOUNSLOW, west london
Service Number: A09/TQ2.0.12136E1
Country: United Kingdom
EVENT:

The Event is in Halls 17, 18 & 19. Our stand areas are located in Hall 19. Our changing area is in the queuing hall which is Hall 20. Because of the numbers attending we have been asked not to use the main concourse but to enter Hall 20 by door 20.1. Please make your way round the outside of the venue to this door to get signed in. The checkin desk will be located inside this area.



We can use the toilets in this hall, but because of the layout of the queues, they will not be connected to our area and are located on the far side of the hall. A privacy alcove will be in the changing room for those who need some privacy at some point when getting changed.



PARKING:

Please park in one of the North Car Parks (Car Park N2 or N3 is probably the closest) and make your way round the outside of the venue to door 20.1. We have been given parking passes for this event. If required please collect your parking pass at checkin. You do not need to put it in your car but will be required to show it on exit. Parking pass is vaild for both days, (so don't hand it in to the gate when leaving on the Saturday.)





TIMES:

Sat: Arrive for 07:30 out for early bird queue at 08:30. Finish at 18:00.

Sun: Arrive for 08:30 out for early bird queue at 09:00. Finish at 17:00.



Please keep to the above times. We really do need to be out at the times stated, to work the Early Bird queues. With regards to finishing times, it has been noticed that a lot of people tend to de-kit early, especially on the Sunday. We are scheduled to attend for the entire duration of the event. I know many people have very long journeys to make, but we need to remain professional and honour our agreements.



If you are going to be late or are unable to attend please phone either myself on 07824 630469 or Elaine on 07825 655044. It is important we have an accurate record of who is in attendance should an emergency situation arise.





ENTRY:

Everyone on the signup will be allocated an MCM pass (wristband) to gain entry to the event. You do not need to buy a ticket. This is one pass for the entire weekend. If you lose it cannot be re-issued and you will have to pay for subsequent days. They will need to be collected individually when you arrive. You cannot collect for someone else. Elaine will be in the Check-In area to hand these out.



You will collect your pass from Elaine at the beginning of the event. If you are attending both days you do not need to hand your pass in on the Saturday, however, you must checkin again on the Sunday morning so we know who is in attendance each day.



Thank you for your understanding and co-operation in this matter.



PLEASE NOTE. IF YOU (OR YOUR PARTNERS) NAME IS NOT ON THE SIGNUP YOU WILL NOT GET A PASS. YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN THE CHANGING AREA. YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY TO GAIN ENTRY TO THE EVENT AND WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN UNTIL GENERAL (OR EARLY BIRD) ADMISSION TIMES.





CHILDREN \ FAMILIES:

Due to the changing room we have been allocated and the number of members attending this event we will unfortunately not have any room in the changing room for anyone not on the signup. Only people with a named pass will be allowed in the actual changing room. If any family member attending wishes to enter the event they will have to purchase a ticket to gain entry.





HEALTH & SAFETY \ SECURITY BRIEFINGS:

First thing every morning we will be having a Health & Safety \ Security briefing. This will take place during kit up time and will be given by one of the MCM \ NEC team. Due to the size of the event and the number of public in attendance it is imperative that we all know what we should do and where we should meet up in an emergency should the need arise. Please make yourself available to listen to this. I know most of you have heard this numerous times but it is a requirement of the venue that everyone receives this information.





SECURITY:

MCM events are very busy and we do sometimes get members of the public trying to get into our changing area. Anyone seen in our changing area that is not recognised should be challenged. If you are not in UKG apparel or costume, do not be offended if another member asks who you are. There will be around 300 people attending each day and no-one will know everyone else. Whilst most people come on the boards on a daily basis, putting names to faces can be difficult. We don’t want a situation to arise where no-one knows a particular person but “assumes” that they should be there. Most of the public who come in are just being nosy or are lost, but we must be on our guard. We do not want any repeats of scenarios we have had in the past.

Due to the amount of people attending it is highly unlikely we will get a lockable area for storing kit overnight as there would just not be room. You are more than welcome to leave kit at your own risk in the changing area if you desire. (Please make sure all costumes etc. are put out of view and locked in suitcases where possible.) As with any event, lockable area or not, any kit left overnight is AT OWN RISK. If you have any doubts or concerns the key thing is to take it with you.





WEAPONS:

Everyone must act responsibly especially when carrying weapons. We must obey any orders given to us by MCM staff, NEC Security or the Police as the event progresses. Sometimes due to security threats or public stupidity, we have been asked not to take weapons outside the venue. We were still allowed them in the building and inside the event itself. This can change as the event progresses. I will be liaising with MCM, NEC and the Police (if required) during the weekend. At present there are no other restrictions in place.

Just to follow up on what Kris has posted

There should be a map attached to this, use car parks N2 or N3 and go around the back of the building to get to door 20.1 in back of Hall 20, where our changing rooms are located.

Sat: Arrive for 07:30 out for early bird queue at 08:30. Finish at 18:00.

Sun: Arrive for 08:30 out for early bird queue at 09:00. Finish at 17:00.

See you there

Update

Check in will still be in hall 20 but you will need to access it via the atrium main entrance for hall 20.

You do NOT need to walk around the back of the building to door 20.1

Is the 'atrium' the main public entrance between halls 1 & 5?
