MCM Comic Con May

Cancelled
£17.50 – £68.50

Part one of the biannual London edition of the UK’s biggest pop culture event—the second takes place at the end of October. Cosplayers, film geeks, and graphic novel fans gather under one colourful roof in to pledge their pop cultural allegiance. This year’s special guests are currently up in the air. But it has been confirmed that Critical Role will no longer be appearing.

In addition to meeting persons of interest, you’ll also get to try out the newest (or upcoming-est) games on the market. And to go the extra geek-out mile, stop by the PopAsia area within MCM London Comic Con. It offers a fusion of Japanese and Asian culture. You can also take part in and experience many cultural powerhouses. These include music, food, fashion, anime and manga.

Cosplaying at MCM Comic Con May

If you’d like to cosplay, you can show up in your attire or get changed there. Just head to the cosplay desk for further directions. Just be sure to check the rules—especially if you’re planning on bringing fake weapons.

Going for the first time? Then check out previous years’ offerings for inspiration, and transform yourself into a DIY superhero or graphic novel character. Get close to the backstage action and nab free entry to MCM Comic Con London by doing two volunteer shifts  as a steward.

Getting there

The event takes place in the huge ExCel Hall. That makes Customs House or Prince Regent on the DLR your best bet for travel on the day.

Tickets range from £17.50 to £69.50.
