Gil Gerard update! Gil is incredibly excited to be coming to the UK to meet his fans and we cannot wait for you to meet him in this rare appearance! We have to warn you that autographs cannot be purchased at the table itself due to guest requirements. We will be operating a ticketing system instead.

There will be the opportunity to purchase autographs (cash only) from our ticketing desk at the event but we may have to limit Gil Gerard's queue to pre-orders first. Thanks for your understanding! And in the words of Buck Rogers: "You don't leave here without having fun!"
