London Film & Comic Con Winter - Announcement of venue change
Due to the success and volume of our London Film & Comic Con this year we are now having an issue that we did not expect or have experienced before. The venue are reluctant to allow us to use the November date that we had booked with them as they now feel the other events that are running alongside us may suffer with our expected volume of people , and they have said we will not be able to use this date as things stand.
We have been working hard with the venue to resolve the issue, but unfortunately we no longer feel we have time to resolve the issues to guarantee the November event would be the one we would be satisfied to hold. Please know that these issues are specific to this year's winter show only and does not affect any future events at this venue going forward.
So, to avoid postponing the event altogether we are going to bring forward a new venue and location that we had originally been planning to introduce to next year's line up of events, bringing it forward to cover our November date.
So this winters LFCC will now be relocated to Brighton and will be called 'Film & Comic Con Brighton'. This event will be held at The Hilton Brighton Metropole Hotel on 7th & 8th November 2015. It will have the same guests and activities as the London location but will now be held in Brighton.
For everyone who has purchased tickets for LFCC Winter, you will receive an automatic refund - All refunds will be initiated within 7 business days.
Film & Comic Con Brighton was going to launch in early 2016 but this works well for us as we can now get into this amazing venue and introduce a big new show making it ready for our exciting 2016 line up of events.
We are finding that we are outgrowing many of our large arena events we use around the UK , and as such we are looking to run around 3 Mega Film & Comic Cons in 3 different cities over the next year.
These events will be...
• Summer London Film & Comic Con
• Spring Brighton Film & Comic Con
• Summer Manchester Film & Comic Con
These three events will become our big flagship events going forward, with the big star guests you will expect to see at such events - so not just London.
We will also have many extra things going on with the feature zones such as cosplay, board gaming and computer gaming all getting bigger.
For this year's Film and Comic Con Brighton, we plan to run as we were intending for LFCC Winter, then ramp it up fully as its own mega event for spring 2016 as originally planned.
All the guests that have been announced for LFCC Winter will now be attending the Brighton event, and many more will be added in the next few days/weeks.
Tickets are on sale now and are available from the website - www.filmandcomicconbrighton.com
We are really very sorry for any inconvenience incurred with this move, but I hope you can see that it was unavoidable.
We are very much looking forward to seeing you all at our new show on the South Coast with Film & Comic Con Brighton this November.Brighton Film and Comic Con - Home
