Spring is here and Wales Comic Con is gearing up for its first event of the year and it promises to be a bumper one!

Thousands will descend on Glyndwr University for the event. As well as local people many will be staying at locations in Wrexham and across the region and some will come far across Europe just to visit Wales Comic Con right here in Wrexham.

It’s estimated that it will pump over £1m into the regional economy and, as it’s reckoned to be the best Comic Con, it puts Wrexham on the map as the place to be this weekend 🙂


The Guest List has actors, writers and voiceovers! It headlines Kiefer Sutherland, 24 and Designated Survivor, Sam Neil, Jurassic Park, David Tennant, Dr Who, Rupert Grint, Harry Potter, Hellboy himself Ron Perlman, Liam Cunningham, Game of Thrones, Sam Claflin, Hunger Games, Sean Pertwee, Gotham, Emmy Raver-Lampman, the Umbrella Academy… the list goes on and on…… you can check them all out here.

Next come the traders who will arrive from across the UK to sell everything Comic Con with licensed merchandise, collectables, artwork- just about anything you can think of! All at one venue. A treasure trove for dedicated con-goers and an ideal place to pick up gifts and momentos. You can see if you’re favourite is going here.

Then there’s the very popular Question and Answer sessions and of course a chance to take part in Cosplay where you can show off your costumes and see who’s the best this time!

The Gaming Zone is always packed and is a great way to spend a couple of hours with the kids or with friends trying out the latest gadgetry and games.
