Whatever you are into, you’ll find some amazing treasures on the show floor with incredible exhibitors showcasing some truly awesome memorabilia. The artist’s alley is where it’s at if you absolutely love comic and manga art. One artist even drew my sister as a manga character once!! You’ll find art prints of your favourite worlds and characters to take home.

Head on over to the Cosplay Zone to practice your pose, take centre stage and showcase your incredible designs. Even if you’re not cosplaying, the Cosplay Zone is a perfect way to learn about the work that goes into making the costumes, pick up tips and get inspired! Will you be cosplaying this year? There are also plenty of stage shows and panels for you to enjoy including, celebrity Q&As, screenings, performances, workshops, competitions, live gaming, insightful discussions and so much more!
