A Personal Message from Rachel
“It's Monday morning and I am still reeling from the events of this weekend - the L4 convention in London. It was an amazing experience to meet so many fans of the show, to talk and meet with the people like you that keep the show alive and the community around it thriving. I was overwhelmed by the strength of feelings, by the stories I was told, by the amazing people I met. Thank you for coming and supporting a show that is nothing without you all, thank you for your beautiful generosity of spirit ... and with chocolate ... and flowers! Keep on watching the show and I hope to see you all again soon. Who knows, hopefully in Blackpool!
