MCM Birmingham Comic Con is This Weekend!

Got any plans for the weekend? G is on holiday (I completely forgot about his second booked holiday within a month) and so we’re hoping to head to Birmingham NEC for a weekend of cosplay inspiration. It’s the perfect weekend to go as it’s MCM Comic Con on the 18 -19 March, yay!

I’m really hoping we’ll be able to go as it will be our first time. Here’s what’s happening if you’re considering going yourself:

Meet the Red Dwarf Crew!

One of my favourite TV shows ever is Red Dwarf so I was super hyped to see that Robert Llewelly, Danny John-Jules and Chris Barrie are all going to be there. How amazing would it be to get your photo taken with them! Other guests include Billie Piper, David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser, Andrew Lee Potts and Trina Nishimura. Oh and the Lorax is going to be in the Kidzone, the LORAX!

Comic Village

Comic village is where creators, artists, writers and fans can gather to promote and celebrate sequential art. If you enjoy comics this is where you’re going to want to head.

Buy All The Things!

There will be loads of merch to buy from action figures to trading cards. We always like to look for some quality, unique and hard to find memorabilia and clothing so that’s what we’ll be after.


I would absolutely love to be a cosplayer. If I had the time, the money and the skill I would spend my days designing and making costumes and showing them off online and at conventions. Comic Con is the perfect place to go to see the talent that is found in the world of cosplay. I cannot wait!

There’s so much more happening this weekend. You can find out more by visiting the website or following Birmingham Comic Con on FacebookBuy your tickets quickly or see how much they cost on the door, kids go free!
