      Please ONLY contact Martin Friday-Monday on 07502393033. If you have any queries at any other time, please post here or email us at registrations @ animeleague.com.

      Friday Activities

      Friday entry to LAGC starts at 12PM (noon), and we have activities going on all afternoon/evening. Please view the conbook and event timetable for more information.

      Saturday and Sunday Activities

      Normal entry to LAGC is at 10.30AM on Saturday and Sunday, unless you are helping out (ie: staffing) in which case it is 8:30AM onward. We will then be rolling until midnight, where everyone will return to the hostel (or go home/to their hotels!). The last tube back to the hostel is just after midnight.

      There's lots to do throughout the day, including a ton of events, dealers (we will aim to have plenty of companies involved, so there will be plenty to buy, probably at prices lower than Expo events), Video Gaming, Artist Alley, anime screening and so forth.

      Transport Information.

      Getting the London in itself is not the end of transport costs. You will need to get a London Underground Day Travelpass on the Saturday at the least. This will cost about £6.50 (about two thirds of this maximum if you have an oyster card, which we recommend you buy). It will allow you to go anywhere in London all day via the underground.

      Click here for a map of the London Underground.

      I would recommend booking in ADVANCE by train or coach. You might get a discount.

      http://www.nationalrail.co.uk is the site for booking and finding out train times nationwide.

      IF you happen to live in or be close to a major city, then megabus might substantially reduce the cost of travelling.

      Similarly, National Express do a similar deal -

      @Gbaker111 it's the entire hostel, so the dorm you stay in will have other con attendees.

      You book via the convention website when you register

      Re: LAGC Hostel Information - Request where to stay and ask questions here

      Question: is there a way to book for just saturday night, as con website only gives options for booking either 'Friday & Saturday nights' or 'all 3 nights'?

      Is there another link for such choice or just book 1 night via the hostel website?

      cheers

      I'm afraid single nights aren't available due to it being a block booking. So the options on the website are the only two.
