Not sure if this is the right section for this , please move if it ain't .

My boy has said there's one coming up in May and he's desperate to go along to it , he is mainly into figures and collectables.

Have many from here been to one before ? Do they have stalls to buy things from or is it just to see new things coming out .

Went twice last year, May/October - look forward to going again :)

They have stalls for cosplay items, plush toys/cushions, models/figures, gaming booths, comic artists and their wares. In October there were two halls, a large and small one - they are full of stalls for all related stuff.

Yeah, lots of things to buy there. I'm hoping to get down there myself for this one - though that might have something to do with a certain Jessica Nigri being there... maybe...

Yes, incredibly busy. Make sure you have bought tickets before as if you are buying them on the day you will probably have a 2+ hour wait in an empty hall.

If you can get to them!

It gets mega busy, whenever we have gone (about 6 times), we always buy the early bird tickets and get there early so we are at the front of the paid ticket queue. Even that one can take over an hour to get you in.

We then spend a couple of hours and leave. Also expect lots of kids running around with “Free Hugs” signs.

Thanks for that Mr_W. :smashin:

But I think to pay an extra £24.50 to effectively 'queue jump' is taking the p***!!!:mad:

But that's capitalism for ya I suppose....

I went for the first time about 4 years ago and had to buy a ticket on the day. I think we queued for 3 hours and when we finally got inside we could barely move.

Pay the extra, I wouldn’t want to entertain children in an empty convention hall for that long.

Went last year and whilst my son and I enjoyed it I honestly was a little disappointing. Enjoyed seeing all the people dressed up but It was mostly just stands/tables where you could buy stuff (comic books, collectables etc). Seemed like a lot of hassle just to look at some stuff I didn't really want or could get in my home town. I think my son would enjoy it more if he was going just with his mates but I think he is still a little young for that.
