This weekend, I headed up to Birmingham (about 3 and a bit hours by train) for Charmed 20. This was a Charmed convention, in honour of it being 20 years since the TV show started. I have never been to a convention before, but have loved Charmed for years (not quite 20 though!) so it was a bit of a dream come true.
Over 2 days, myself and my friend Katie (who I'm pretty sure introduced me to Charmed) had photos and autographs with a few key characters from Charmed. We also sat through a few talks, which involved the Macarena, Brian Krause (Leo) being traumatised by a shower scene with Holly Marie Combs (Piper) and a few other amusing things.
I managed to get a picture with Holly, Brian & Drew Fuller (Chris - Piper & Leo's son). I also got autographs from Holly & Drew, as well as from Jennifer Rhodes (Grams) - who hadn't really changed; and Dorian Gregory (Darryl):
Of course I had to treat myself to a couple of nice things; a rather cool mug:
And a replica Book of Shadows - it's so detailed!!!
On the Sunday, we had a bit of time to kill before a talk, so we went for a walk in a local park near the venue. There were swan boats, a mini golf course (with fountain and waterfall) as well as a mini train and bouncy castle slide! Such a fun park! We also had to get some ice cream (of course!)
Oh, and I also managed to work a bit more on the cross-stitch:
All in all, it was an amazing weekend; one that I'm very glad I was able to take part in!
Whoops I seem to have missed a Sunday! Sorry in advance for all the comments you will get - I'm using my week off wisely and catching up...
