Re: Festival in the Shire (August 2010)

Welcome to TCG Mark, and thanks for chiming in.

I know that I will have difficulty attending this festival, but I am having difficulty doing anything outside of work these days (very busy) so it doesn't have anything to do with location or price for me.

Just as a comparison from my US perspective:

a Comic Con four day pass runs $100, or about £60 (for today at least). That includes all of the panels, workshops, etc.

A Dragon*Con four day pas is $60 now, up to $100 as you get closer to the event dates.

A four day Myth Con (Mythopoeic Society) is $80 for non-members.

The One Ring Celebration (ORC) put on my theonering.net (last held back in 2007) ran about $350 for the full package, with much less expensive packages (such as $90 which did not include evening events or reserved seating in the auditoriums for main events).

All in all, I think the Festival in the Shire seems in the realm of reasonably priced, and I have nothing to complain about except that I am too @*$^%*! busy.
