Sherlock Convention in Birmingham UK

I probably won't go to this, as I kind of feel like the price is a bit of a rip off, compared to 221B Con which has an established repuation already as an awesome Sherlock Holmes con and is only $30 or thereabouts. Same with MCM Expo in London, which is only £30 for the whole weekend. 

Eventually everyone will support Johnlock.

Re: Sherlock Convention in Birmingham UK

Starfury just announced that Louise Brealey (Molly) will be attending as the first guest.  

I bought a membership already.  It's expensive, yes, but its a different animal than fan-run conventions. It's a professional for-profit enterprise, and they pay for actors to attend.  I've actually never attended anything but fan-run conventions before (which I love), so this will be something of a learning experience.  Generally I go to conventions with authors as guests, not actors.  Regardless of how it turns out, I can't miss the chance to geek out over Sherlock while I'm in England on vacation, and break out my Christmas Glamour Fail Molly costume.

I'd actually posted about this before here:

Is there any way to merge my post with yours to avoid the duplication?  If not, no worries.
