MCM Comic Con London (October)

£20.00 – £85.00

Late October isn’t just the time of year for dressing up for Halloween. It’s also time for the autumn edition of the bi-annual pop culture expo (although canceled in 2021 due to COVID-19, the spring event usually takes place over the last weekend in May).

A three-day celebration of fandom and fantasy, The MCM Comic Con is the UK’s biggest pop culture convention. It’s also the only one that brings together films, gaming, comics, anime, television, gadgets, clothing and toys.

The attractions

Past October MCM Comic Con London attractions have included Cosplay Central, complete with changing areas and supplies for costume repairs, should you require them. Just be sure to read the rules about props and weapons first! No blades or drones allowed, obvs!. There’s also the Comic Village, Author’s Corner, Pop Asia, workshops, merch, free to play games and even a tattoo parlour. For more details and tips on getting around, check our our complete guide to MCM Comic Con.

Famous faces

Headliners haven’t been announced yet, but the last live event featured Sean of the Dead, Star Trek, The Boys and Mission Impossible superstar Simon Pegg along with Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff, two of the young stars of Stephen King’s It reboots. DC and Marvel comic book artists George Pérez and Amelia Rose Blaire from Detroit:Become Human were also in attendance.

Tickets

There are different tiers of tickets to MCM Comic Con London. Choose between a weekend pass for all three days, a standard general entry, or a priority entry for individual days. If you’re just going for a day, priority entry might be worth the additional £7.00 to £8.00 so you can maximise your time with some sneak peaks. You’ll also get competition entry to the MCM Prize draws and early access to purchase photo ops with your heroes.

Staying in the loop

Further additions to the line-up and shows will be announced right up until the event itself. You can get regular updates and plan your time with the MCM Comic Con 2019 app.

Free (kind of) tickets

You can get access to the whole event for free by volunteering with the MCM London Steward Team. You’ll just need to commit to two shifts across the weekend. Then you’ll have the rest of the time to yourself.

Kids at Comic Con

Bringing miniature heroes? Children aged 10 and under can go free with an adult ticket (max two per paying adult). Once inside they can hang out at the Treehouse for activities like facepainting and games.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
