Please share and re-blog - lets set a Worlds Record!
As fans ourselves we totally understand the frustration some of you are having on here! I want everyone to know we are still working very hard on a date that works for as many of the main cast of the show to attend as possible! This has been one of the hardest tasks we have ever had to deal with and we now understand how difficult it must be to film the actual tv show as so many of the main cast are incredibly busy and popular! We just wanted to let you all know that we really do care and we want to deliver the most incredible event we can and that is why things are taking a bit more time that we originally anticipated.
Having said all that, we do appear to be getting somewhere with guest availability now and so hopefully things should start to move forward soon! I also accept that communication is very important and that has not been the best so far. There are always going to be things that I can’t discuss in public, for a whole host of reasons. However, starting today with this post I will come on here and give you all a weekly update every Thursday with how things are going! It may be that I’m on here more if something exciting happens, but at a minimum you can expect to hear from me on a Thursday with some information as to what’s been going on! I will also endeavour to answer any questions I can!
Again, thank you SO much for your patience and support. Going forwards I will ensure that communication is kept up and even more importantly, I hope to have some concrete news on the event in the not too distant future.
PLEASE NOTE: We have since amended this post as Ian Hallard has clarified on Twitter that the Facebook message from “Mark” is in fact NOT Mark Gatiss! Muddled information in all the excitement we’re afraid. It happens, but we apologize for any confusion it may have caused.
Andrew Scott has sent us a lovely and exclusive video greeting and introduction for his new film Pride, out in cinemas this September.
