This is going to sound like a stupid question.. but is the ticket price for the whole 5 day event? I know everything else is separate I'm just trying to figure out my finances with my mum at the moment LOL!!

There's rarely a stupid question.

The $275 covers you from the Thursday night Meet and Greet thru to the end of the autographs on Sunday. The only optional add-on (currently) during those three days is the Friday night banquet / cabaret.

In addition to that we have a harbour tour planned for the Thursday daytime with lunch included...and RDA too (he's just not part of the lunch), and the filming location tour on the Monday. Both of those will involve an extra ticket of course.

Is the optional add on of the banquet/cabaret going to be on sale at the same time as the convention ticket?

That's alright.

The banquet should be available to purchase same day. Harbour cruise and tour hopefully too.

Richard you said something about a payment option what will that look like? Will it be 2 payments? 3 payments? Set dates by you guys or by us the attendee?

This will be detailed in an announcement later this week but in brief it would be 3 almost equal payments ($95, $90, $90) spread over consecutive months from when you book the ticket. i.e. a third payable at time of booking followed by two more payments the following months.

Your ticket number will be allocated at the time of booking and then the eTicket issued upon completion of the scheduled payments.

I thought the Cabaret was included in the main $275, or does the Banquet and Cabaret go together?

It may still swap to after the auction but if it's after the banquet we will open up to general admission for the cabaret section of the evening.

Is it possible to pay all-at-once or we all have to make separate payments?

Will we be able to use PayPal? Cause all my money is saved in there ATM and I'll need to transfer it back to my bank account if not...
