10am – 2pm.
No need to book – but please register interest on the Facebook Event.

As excitement builds toward this year’s Portsmouth Comic Con – International Festival of Comics in May, we are working in partnership with GoGeek Events CIC and Seekers Create to offer families a taster for what is to come with the chance to become a superhero for the day this half term!

Kids will be able to get crafty and make the mask or helmet of their favourite superhero or get creative and design their own with whatever superpowers they choose! Plus, have your photo taken with one of GoGeek Events CIC’s amazing Superhero cosplayers.

Then join Seekers Create to become a Superhero of the war on waste and follow their Flotsam & Jetsam trail around Victoria Park to decode a secret message and learn how you can tackle plastic pollution in the city. Plus, there is even the chance to WIN an Oculus VR headset!

The Portsmouth Comic Con team will also be on hand to tell you more about the largest Comic Con of its kind that is coming to Portsmouth Guildhall on Saturday 7th – Sunday 8th May which features the best in comics, film, TV and pop culture entertainment.

Comic Con features some of the greatest artists and writers in the industry, alongside stars of the screen and the wonderful world of cosplay with gaming, VR, live FX, panels, displays, workshops, exhibitions, Steampunk and merch plus special features for 2022, an immersive Star Wars Walk Through Experience, a Celebration of Female Superheroes and a World of Witchcraft & Wizardry!
