A comic convention for South Manchester

Manchester Comic Fest 27 April 2019


Manchester Comic Fest is a comic convention held at The Forum Centre in Wythenshawe South Manchester. Our next event takes place on Saturday 27 April 2019 starting at 10:00 am until 4:00 pm.  The convention features lots of events for the whole family including a Harry Potter set and a cosplay competition for both adults and children. Meet Bumbelbee from Transformers and Star Wars actor Oliver Wilson. There will be many guests from the comic industry including Mike Collins (co-creator of X-Man Gambit), Nigel Parkinson and Lew Stringer from the Beano and this year we have a special feature on the animation of Cosgrove Hall. You can also see a performance by award winning comedian Gary Tro (of The JUST US LEAGUE) of his new show called The Greatest Superhero Movie Never Made.

Cosplay Competition


Part of the fun with these events is dressing up as your favourite character and we would love you to do that at Manchester Comic Fest. Come and take part in our cosplay competition and win some great prizes including a family ticket for The Light Cinema in Stockport.

Comics and Geek Goods Traders


Looking for that hard to find missing comic or just an unusual gift for the geek in your life? This is the very place for you. There will be loads of trader tables selling all kinds of comics and related items. If you cannot find it here you probably cannot find it anywhere !
