Friday - Summer warm-up gig
Up and out of the flat on the 10:43am train (hoping Doc will be fine for 4 days). Got to London and travelled up to the hotel in Totteridge and Whetstone, check in and then headed down to Alley Pally to help with the set-up. Was completely amazed by the size of the place, beautiful building with a beautiful view. Once we had helped as much as possible we headed down to the O2 Islington for the gig, where we helped scan and tag up some early bird SitC tickets/bands and then enjoyed various acts such as Tom Milson, Dave Giles, BriBry and Weebl. (The customer info sign on the tube was a thing I had to Instagram!)
To sum this up as much as possible, I spent 2.5hours scanning tickets Saturday morning, followed by about 5hours or so on the SitC merchandise stand. Then Sunday consisted of front desk information, taking gifts to the green room, helping with queue organisation and various other duties. Sadly I didn't get a chance to see any of the panels and most of the main stage acts, but I still really enjoyed the weekend and I think the organisers appreciated our help.
Monday - Boat Party!
This was a chance finally relax after the long weekend and see friends away from the YouTube world. Let's just say we had quite a few drinks, but we didn't regret anything. I say that, my arms are aching lots thanks to me thinking it would be good to show off my poor attempt of a chin-up...
Again, the best video that shows off the evening is this one by Louis:
