    Hope you don’t mind me asking here, but could you put Caption’s email address on the site? I’ve a friend who wants to contact the organisers, and we can’t see who to email.

    Can’t make it on saturday sadly, but is there much going on on Sunday to warrant coming from London for the day?

      Dear Sammy,

      I’d like to think so! Karen Rubins, Ian Rakoff, Robert Ball, Chris Geary, Mike Medaglia, Andrew Cheverton and Barry Nugent are exclusively guesting on the Sunday. Also, while he’ll be hanging out on the Saturday, Rian Hughes is only doing panels on the Sunday… Hope to see you there!

      best wishes,

        Thanks for your answer Alex

        Arghh. All set to go today and then my partner’s back went out too badly to drive. Being an oddball I don’t drive and by then it was too late to sort out the public transport option which takes 3 plus hours (I have to come from Watford). Very disappointing, it had a really interesting line up (when I saw the schedule) and I was looking forward to catching up with old friends and possibly meeting some new people. Hope it all well, fingers crossed for next year…

    Hey. I was just wondering if you will be happening again this year and if people can/do attend in cosplay or costume? Thanks X

      Yup, in Fargo Village, Coventry on Oct 10th/11th. People generally don’t cosplay at Caption, but you’re more than welcome to!
