It is with a heavy heart that following the latest Government statement and advice regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, The Guildhall Trust with our event partners, Tripwire Magazine and GoGeek Events CIC, has taken the decision to postpone Portsmouth Comic Con – International Festival of Comics to Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd May 2021.
The event had previously been rescheduled to 15th & 16th August 2020 due to the pandemic, but with the new quarantine restrictions for international guests announced and re-opening restrictions for venues and events still unclear, we are sad to confirm that we are no longer able to proceed with plans for an event this summer.
Portsmouth Comic Con, the biggest Comic Con on the South Coast, returns to Portsmouth Guildhall, bringing you the best in comic, film, TV and Pop Culture entertainment, with special features for 2020; ‘A Celebration of Female Superheroes’ (Saturday) and ‘A World of Witchcraft and Wizardry’ (Sunday).
An impressive Artists Alley, welcoming some of the greatest artists and writers in the industry, alongside stars of the screen and the wonderful world of cosplay is complemented with incisive panels, exhibitions, displays, workshops, a Comic City and Village full of merch and interactive fun in the form of VR, robots, steampunk, retro and board gaming and more!
If you’re serious about comics, love Marvel films, Star Wars, cult series like Dr Who or simply looking for a family fun day out – this is the event for you!
