Review of Feel the thrill at Winter Funland

Overall rating: 3.5

It’s a limited time for loads of people. We didn’t have the chance to go to Father Christmas as it well take you more than 30 minutes in the queue. Also we have an encounter to one of the staff on the toddler rides that don’t care if all the the kids are safe before she turn the control on the double decker ride as my boy is still climbing up but still carry on running the ride (however that might be an isolated rude staff) as on the other ride the operator immediately delay the start of the ride when he saw a child trying to catch up with it. Also the seat belts for the toddler rides were not functional ( there’s a belt but no buckle).
We enjoy the Andy and the odd socks band. Overall ok but few safety issues needs to be improved as the target customers are majority kids.

Review of Tattoo Tea Party

Overall rating: 3 Verified review

The layout was complicated and confusing. You ended up going round in circles. I go to other tattoo events and would rate this one as "up there" but please, please, please next year sort the layout out. For disabled people there could do with being a few seats scattered around especially towards the far side of the room where it is a huge walk back to the food/drink area, which was the only place that I saw chairs. The entertainment was enjoyable and made the event worth the trauma of circling the same tattooists over and over again. Well done on the parking arrangements too. Well controlled and organised. Food slightly lacking in variation to be honest though.... More variety e.g. jacket potatoes etc. Will be back next year though to check out the changes to the layout, as I notice it wasn;t just me that mentioned this......

Fun, but not outstanding

I'm not tattooed and don't know much about tattoo culture, so being a curious person who is on the fence about getting one I thought this would be a nice event to see what was out there. However, the venue and its layout was a little overwhelming and all I did was go up and down aisles seeing the same thing over and over again. It seems there isn't much that is original or inspiring in the tattoo world today. The extra events were really interesting, but I didn't try everything out. It was such a shame that the events didn't really start until after 1pm, because that meant I was hanging around for hours and so I missed some events towards the end of the day because I had to go and find food. It was nice that most of the activities on offer were free, and it was interesting seeing people being tattooed, but I don't think it's the kind of event for me.

My first tattoo tea party was amazing!

Overall rating: 5 Verified review

This was the first tattoo convention I have attended, and I absolutely loved it!
Everything about it was perfect. The price point, the venue, the artists attending, the entertainment available, the vendors, everything! Loved every minute of it, and will certainly attend next year!
Congratulations on a fantastic event. See you next year!!

Tattoo Tea Party

Overall rating: 4 Verified review

I had the best time and met some wonderful people. I enjoyed watching the tattooists working. I also loved seeing the pin up girls. Every thing was great, the stalls were an eclectic mix of vintage and modern. I would recommend this event to everyone as the is something to amuse those of any age.

First time, not last!

Overall rating: 4.5 Verified review

I had wanted to attend last year, but didnt get chance, this year i squeezed it into an already busy weekend, and boy am i glad i did! Thank you for putting together a wonderful event, i went blind to the names of tattooists there were so many of them. I was bowled over by the talent all in one room! The shows were fantastic, you encourage participation in so many different ways, and you have stalls for everyone! I cannot wait for next year where i can dedicate the whole weekend just to your show!

Tatto Tea Party

Overall rating: 4.5 Verified review

Great atmosphere! Everyone was really friendly and the talent was amazing! Food and drink was a bit sp**** but the entertainment made up for it!! I absolutley LUUUURVED the amazing freak show act!! Would have been good to have some live music and maybe a 'Tea Room' to go with the 'Tea Party' theme!

Overall rating: 4.5 Verified review

We brought both our kids and wasnt sure if it was right but as soon as we got there they were loving it, the sideshow was awesome and the dodgems were their favourite part( we got our moneys worth with that alone. Everyone was very friendly and plenty of giveaways for the kids to make them feel welcome( badges stickers, cards and sweets. We will definately be coming next year and more than likely for the weekend. The 2 lads on the dodgems did a really good job.
