Autographs: One free with the majority of guests. You will need to bring along something for the guest to sign. You can also purchase photos from the guests, which will be priced between 10-20 - if purchasing a photo the guest will sign this also. 100% of the purchase goes to the guest - Regenerations does not take a percentage. There are no selfies/photographs in the autograph studio to ensure queues move along as there is a lot to get through over the weekend. 

Photograph studio: Some actors will be grouped together to provide value for money, and the studio will have a full-size Hartnell-era Tardis console to have your photo taken with. The professional photographer charges 20 for an A4 print supplied in a card protective cover. For clarity, the photo is 20 regardless of the number of attendees and guests in the shot, so for example you and a friend could be photographed with thee guests and the price for the photo will still be 20, payable directly to the photographer. 

Schedules: As there are always last-minute adjustments, schedules will not be available prior to the event. Regenerations will have multiple activities taking place simultaneously throughout the weeken, so come prepared to be busy! Guests: You will have multiple opportunitis for autographs/photos/talks over the weekend, so please respect the guests' privacy when they are socialising in the public area, though by all means say hello.   

Please have a fantastic time and we look forward to welcoming you soon.
