Default Kensington Dolls House Festival

So, as I haven't visited my friends in England for far too long I've just booked flights for a few days in early December - so I can go to the Kensington Dolls House Festival as well.

Is anyone else going?

And any recommendations when one should arrive? I've seen huge queues on the documentary that they have on their site; is there any strategy for not waiting hours to get in?

I'm really excited.

Lucky you! What a treat! I have only been to the May one a few years ago. I can't remember what time I arrived but there was no queue at all. It would've been morning I suppose. Sorry, not much help!

Hi, there's not strategy with Kensington. You just have to wait. There's always a huge queue like the documentary suggested but it quick goes down.., everyone's usually in in 10/15 mins most.
There are 50 kdf members a year who get early access an hour before general sale. I've don't this before with a friend but won't be this year... Sadly this does mean that one off pieces have sometimes already sold by the time you get in but it usually doesn't affect a huge amount... The only artists who seem to sell lots in that first hour are Julie Campbell and Gale Bantock.

You will absolutely fine, you'll be in within 10 mins but I always like to get there about 20/25mins before opening ! I'll be at the Christmas show again too this year

I would love to go, and it's right on my doorstep. Unfortunately, my partner has planned a weekend away for us that clashes :-( He has so much patience with my hobby, I don't have the heart to complain!
