This year we want to make the event even bigger and by moving it to the Queen Elizabeth Hall, this means we’re able to offer fans so much more and I’m sure no one is going to be disappointed.” 

Event organiser, Dennis Whittle, said, “Following the success of the previous two years we wanted to keep growing Oldham Comic Con so that we can attract even bigger names in the world of comics to Oldham. 

From novelists to comic writers, to competitions and exhibitions, there is so much on offer. Come along, you will be far from bored as we’ve packed the day with activities and well-known comic guests.”
