Are we Autism friendly?

By their very nature events like ours are loud and full of flashing lights. With that in mind, we have a chill-out, noise-free room for anyone to go if they need time to relax. The room is of notable size and we do not expect it to reach capacity. The room will also have staff manning it and as politely as possible priority will be given to people that need it the most.

Photos and Autographs policy

Autographs and photos will be sold in time slots. We will be using a virtual queuing system.
Signings and photos will be taking place in a dedicated hall on the 3rd floor of the building. Entrance to the floor will only be allowed 15 minutes before your allotted time. This is to avoid huge queues and more importantly so you do have to queue for hours, in essence giving you more time to enjoy the event.

Guest Queueing Example
