New for 2017 – Festival Passes!

This year, after much feedback and consultation, we will be moving to a pass system for the festival.

The main events programme will be exclusive to pass-holders, there will be exclusive guest-related goodies and a fancy wristband identifying you as a festival groupie!

There are weekend passes or day passes giving you access to an incredible range of comic events and international guests.

Most events have been designed to be suitable for all ages, however we will make minimum age recommendations on certain events where necessary. There are generous concessions for under 16s and students.

Weekend pass – 14 – 15 October

The weekend pass gives you access to all the main events from Saturday 10.30am – 5.30pm and Sunday 10.30am-3.30pm.
