The Greatest Show in the Galaxy was held on the 12 – 13th May in Peterborough and we went to get the scoop, reporting for both Trekkie Girls and Trek Radio, we tweeted live from the show on both days.
Being southern gals we don’t like travelling north of the M25. Truth be told it did feel as if we were going to be holidaying on Cestus III instead of Risa. But our fears were alleviated when we got there.
The venue was very fitting. It wasn’t overwhelmingly large but big enough to accommodate the crowds. There were some initial teething problems due to technical issues, no card payments could be processed – this led to longer queues and caused the ATMs to run out sooner.
Our tip for the organisers would be to discount early online booking at future events.
But despite the queues to get in, there was ample free parking and the event organisers hired buses to transport attendees to and from the local train station.
