Autograph signings can only be purchased on the day and the guest will provide a print. Some guests are happy to sign an item of your own in place of this.

Prices are listed on the Special Guest page.

You must arrive to the area ready for when your chosen guest is scheduled to be photographed/sign. Schedules will be available online in the week before the show.
