NEWS: Comic Con Mania Is Sweeping The Nation!

Monopoly events have announced that a new series of Comic Cons will be coming our way in 2024.

Over the last few years, they've cemented their position as the leading fan convention operators in the UK, and their shows are known for bringing the biggest and best celebrity talent to meet their fanbase. After a period of exciting growth, they've decided to launch a new show concept COMIC CON MANIA.

These shows will offer the same fan friendly, geektastic fun at our bigger shows. Each event will feature a cosplay competition and parade, retro and current gaming, a selection of fantastic traders and plenty of awesome set builds and props from popular tv series and movies... plus a whole lot more.

So pretty much everything you've come to know and love from a Monopoly Events show - but with some small changes:

* Comic Con Mania events will all be one day. Usually Saturday, with the odd Sunday sprinkled in.

* Tickets will be priced lower - £10 for Adults, £5 for children aged between 5-15, and toddlers ages 1-4 are free. Family tickets are also available with savings.

* Most shows will have a small selection of 4-6 celebrity guests - but will not be at the same level of our bigger established Comic Con shows.

If you're looking for a great family day out then Comic Con Mania is the show you've been looking for.

More details will be announced soon - and tickets for all shows will be onsale at
