[Comicshowtables] Admin: ComicShowTables Facebook

Hey all,
Just a heads up: ComicShowTables now has a Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/ComicShowTables. Like the Twitter account, this will automatically post whenever there’s a new list mailout.
 This is mostly to allow me to communicate with cons that are primarily organised on Facebook as “ComicShowTables” rather than using my personal account – though you’re welcome to “like” this if that’s good for you. Be aware that Facebook is inconsistent in putting Page updates into newsfeeds so this probably isn’t a reliable way to follow the updates (unless you turn on “get notifications” for the page).
Cheers and happy new year,

P.S. As always, if you know of UK cons open for table bookings that haven’t been covered by ComicShowTables please let me know though email, Twitter, or by messaging this Facebook page.
P.P.S. Would you be interested in helping run ComicShowTables? I’ll be getting married this summer (yay) which will result in some extended offline time for me, so I’d be interested in training someone to who could cover for then.

[Comicshowtables] Admin: regarding Animeleague

Earlier today I posted details of Animeleague’s 2020 events.
Shortly after posting this I found out that Animeleague are posing children as guests to promote an upcoming event. Such an action has significant safeguarding implications.
In general I always encourage ComicShowTables subscribers research events before signing up to them. I would particularly suggest this for Animeleague.
At present there is an active discussion regarding this on the CVA Facebook group: www.facebook.com/groups/274158159320812/permalink/3418321561571107/

To avoid email overload, the details for these events have been condensed into the list below.

For all UKCGF events the booking form is at https://www.mooseeventsuk.com/traders. The overall main page for this organiser is https://www.mooseeventsuk.comThe organiser’s main Facebook page is at https://www.facebook.com/ukcomiconandgamingfestivals/ 

All events are priced at £30 artists and £50 for a regular trader with a single table. The exceptions to this are Bristol, which is £35/£55, and the Spring Cornwall event which is two days and therefore double the price. See the booking form page for reduced prices for multiple tables.
