WDYTYA? LIVE advice

Postby Editor » Mon Nov 03, 2008 10:06 pm

We will be running something in the magazine on the Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE show and I thought it would be good to include any tips that those who have been before might be able to offer 'first timers'. If you have got some advice you would like to share with other readers could you email me at sarahwilliams@bbcmagazinesbristol.com and put WDYTYA? LIVE tip in the subject line.

Thank you

Sarah

p.s. I look forward to seeing you all there. We will have our antiques expert Martyn Downer on our stand for one of the days (not yet finalised). Watch this space!

I've been to the last two shows - 2007 + 2008 : here are my tips, in no order...........

Get there early - try and stay all day - at the end of the day, you can whizz about and finish off the stands you might have missed

Bring along a bit of your research written down - you never know who you might speak to on the stands

Once you are in the show, get a coffee, work out which stands you need to go to

Pick up your tickets for the 'Celeb Talk Shows' as early as you can

Get a good nights sleep before you attend !

To avoid the crowds in the hall around lunchtime, go up to the upper level - it's a bit cooler, no crowds and you can sit down

Don't forget your money - there is lots to spend your money on - so maybe you need to have a limit on your spending

There are lots of 'freebies' to pick up and also leaflets and booklets - so maybe just pick up what you really need, not everything !

Definately read the on-line guide on the official site, this'll give you an idea of the timetable and also who and what will be at the show.

***********************
I've put my thoughts on here, as I'm sure that otherwise we'll just be duplicating 'tips' if we send e-mails to Sarah.

Hello Sarah
Can you tell me when/where we can get tickets for the show. I have seen an advert somewhere advertising the tickets but i cannot remember where I saw it. (I thought it was a special offer!)

I look forward to the next Issue Sarah............[;)]

I'm very surprised there were not more 'tips'.

Hopefully my thoughts are of use to people.
