Conventions

2020 Comic & Nerd Conventions in the UK

I saw a couple of conventions pop up the other day which I hadn’t heard of before so I thought I might collate a list of everything which I know is going on this year. If there are any which I’ve missed, or you’re running one which you want included please let me know! I’m just listing these as I find out about them, so please check details before booking anything as I am not affiliated with any of these!

You won’t believe how many damn conventions we have here on our little island!
