Geekfest Road Trip 2015 Part Three

There’s nothing like some torrential rain to remind you that you are in the UK.  But a little (actually a lot, a hell of a lot, like rivers of the stuff) rain wasn’t going to stop us from getting our geek on!

After a fantastic few days in London, we packed up the car and headed to Cardiff.  For the past decade, the city has become synonymous with a certain time travelling Time Lord and it has embraced this connection.  We were glad to avoid the rain and visit the Doctor Who Experience.

 

A wee bit of rain never hurt anyone!

I don’t want to spoil it too much for you if you are planning on going but it is GREAT FUN!  Seriously, get a ticket and treat yourself.

Next stop on the trip was Birmingham, not your usual geek haunt but Rogue Events were hosting their first City of Heroes event – a celebration of Arrow, the Flash and Gotham.

We spent a fantastic day listening to panels from Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen from Arrow), David Ramsey (Diggle from Arrow), Caity Lotz (Black Canary from Arrow), Jason Momoa (soon to be AquaMan and KHAL FRICKIN’ DROGO), Sean Pertwee (Alfred from Gotham), David Zayas (Angel Batista from Dexter!!  I mean, Sal Maroni from Gotham) and the cast of the Flash (minus Grant Gustin)

At this point in the road trip I was starting to get tired.  We had packed so much into each day but there was still a few days left and now we were headed to Snowdonia!  The last leg can be found here!
