Convention Countdown – Bristol Comic Expo Reveals Panel Line Up

Summer is upon us (well the one week of sun that we usually get) which means for many comic fans and creators they will be final stages of packing everything they need to head off to one of the big summer comic conventions – Bristol Comic Expo.

The big change to note for the convention this year is that this is a pre-sale all-ticket event.  So if you think of just rocking up to the convention doors on the day without a ticket then think again. The organisers have confirmed that there won’t be any tickets available on the door. This week is the last chance to buy your tickets to attend. A weekend pass for the event will set you back £16, a pass for just the Saturday will be £10 and Sunday £8.

Check out the press release below for all the information as well as full panel schedule. It’s a very interesting line up of panels and a nice to see a focus on the small press scene.

This year’s Bristol Comic Expo (at its new venue of the Future Inn) is a pre-sale all-ticket event!! This means that there won’t be any tickets available on the door – so if you want to go. Get your tickets THIS WEEK!! (weekend pass £16, Saturday day pass £10, Sunday day pass £8).
