Expo Party
Questions:

Anyone going?
Is it worth buying a ticket for?
Or am I better off making my own amusement?!

Thanks!

I've never been to one myself, but I asked this same question on my facebook today and everyone has said its not very good and a waste of money and nowhere near as good as the parties at cons. But as I said I've never actually been, just going on what I'm told.

We usually make our own amusement, so do most other people I think

I had a feeling that might be the case!

Thanks

There never seems to be a lack of demand for the tickets, so I guess some people like it. Maybe what they want out of a party is just different from what I want?

Weather premitting, there's always lots of people making their own entertainment in the area between Excel and the hotels, in the nearby bars, and in hotel rooms, so you should be able to find something to do that's fun.

If you're going to hang around in the square though, just keep aware of your surroundings and stick with people you trust.

Most of my best memories of expo are the evening just dicking around near the grass, drinking and doing crazy stuff! Haha so that’s where our group will definitely be =]

If you need anyone to hang with give us a yell =D

This is something I'd wondered about as well. I'm just a little unsure what I'd be letting myself in for (crazy huggers etc). Might just stick to nearby bars for ease.

Personal recommendations:

The Custom House Hotel has a really nice bar atatched where they do food and drink. The peppered calamari rings are great!

The Ibis bar is OK, but really tiny.

There's a pretty good (and cheap) fried chicken takeaway on Freemasons Road (the one that runs up the side of the Custom House Hotel)

And the grassy square/steps area/statue is a bit rowdy on Saturday night, but really quite chilled out on the Sunday.

I haven't tried any of the places on the walkway from the tube station to Excel. And I have no idea what the grassy square is like on a Friday. I'm always too tired from travelling
