If you’re joining us by train, alight at Birmingham International. From there you can follow signs for MCM Comic Con via the covered ‘Bridgelink’, then cross the NEC plaza, head over the skywalk and into the Atrium where you’ll find Hall 20 – our queue hall.
If you’re driving, you’ll find NEC clearly signposted from all motorways and major routes including the M42, M40 and M6 – just pop B40 1NT in your sat nav. When you arrive at the NEC don’t follow your satnav anymore, look out for MCM Comic Con or Hall 20 on NEC’s signs.
For those arriving by foot, simply jump on the NEC’s free shuttle bus or take a leisurely stroll along our signposted footpaths and enter the venue through Hall 20 for queue hall.
Shuttle times are:
Friday: 7am – 7pm
Saturday: 7am – 7pm
Sunday: 9am – 7pm
Our accessible entrance is through Atrium 1.
