Yep, I went on the Friday and Saturday. I haven't done a blog post or anything because I've been busy. It was really good, as always, but I wasn't as involved as last year, as I took on the Saturday, and she wanted to spend more time in the Film and Comic Con part - she got to meet some Game of Throne actors, and got their autographs.


YALC now seems really established - I just wish there was more like it for other genres.
