New Scientist Live, worth going?

I'm in London in September and wondering if it's worthwhile to attend the New Scientist Live exhibition. There's a 4-day pass available and a variety of single-day passes. Anyone been to this in the past? What was it like?

Whether it is worth it depends what you are looking to get out of it. I have never been to New Scientist Live, although I have read New Scientist. I would comment that London has a plethora of science-related activities, many of them free to visit or attend. You could easily fill four days with such activities and probably get more science out of it. The venue - ExCeL - is soulless and not as central as London's museums and universities. Unless there is a speaker you particularly want to see I cannot see it being worth the entry fee nor the time.
