I spent last Tuesday and Wednesday immersing myself in the world of retail at the BCSC conference in Manchester.
The Arqivas are one of the funnest events in my presenting calendar. Each year, many of the most impressive names in the radio industry are invited to attend the award show, which for the last two years has taken place at The Roundhouse in Camden. This year I got to interview Melvin Odoom, Joey Essex, Matt Cardle, Christian O’Connell, Tony Blackburn, Rob Beckett and Myleene Class among others. Check out the highlights below:
This weekend I was reporting from The London Film and Comic Con – the UK’s biggest fan and memorabilia event, held at the soon-to-be-demolished Earls Court Exhibition centre!
I was lucky enough to meet some big names in the comic industry, including David Lloyd (V For Vendetta). Here are a few photos from the event, courtesy of the Eighty Sixth Floor.
I’ll be reporting from the MCM Expo accross this weekend at the Excel Centre so if you’re popping along do come and say yello.
Last week I interviewed Kyle A.K.A Sketch McDraw – a prop maker and runner up in the Cosplay championships in France last year. He took us through the intricacies of making his Kuma costume and chatted about the ins and outs of the UK cosplay industry.
See the full interview here.
Listen again to my interview with the cheeky Turner Bros, plus their new single ‘Lay Low’ which is available now on SoundCloud. I’ll be coming live again from Hackney Downs Studios this evening so why not send me a cheeky tweet @GraceForell for a shoutout?
