Once tickets have sold out in advance they will not be available on the door.
Can I get a refund on my ticket?
All tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable as is stated on the terms and conditions of your ticket.
When will special guests be announced?
We announce guests as soon as we have official confirmation. Guests can be announced at any point up to the week of the show. Most announcements happen within 3 – 4 weeks of any show.
How can I meet the special guests?
Guests participate in panel, autograph and photograph sessions. Check in the show guide when it gets published online to find out the places and times of where your favourite guest will be.
The guest I wanted to see has cancelled, can I get a refund?
We will refund any photograph session tickets booked for the guest who can no longer attend. Show tickets are non-refundable and, although we are sad you cannot see your favourite star, there is still a lot to enjoy around the show floor.
AUTOGRAPHS & PHOTO SESSIONS
When will photo session tickets be available for purchase?
We aim to have photograph tickets on sale one month before the show, but to stay up to date on release dates follow us on social media to be the first to know!
How many people can be in one photo?
You can have up to two adults and two children in one photograph with a guest. Please do bear in mind that you will only receive one print per photograph purchased. Additional prints cost £5.
How long do I have to wait to get my photo after the session?
Photographs will be printed on the same day that you have your photograph taken. Timings will be dependent on how busy the photograph session was for each guest.
Please note that if you have a weekend ticket and have photographs taken on the Friday or Saturday you will be able to collect your photographs the next day.
Can I get a digital version of my photo?
We do not yet have the facilities to send out a digital version of the photograph. We supply an 8″ x 10″ print only.
What time is my photo session?
Times will be released along with the schedules and the show guide usually a week before the show. Do check back to confirm your photograph session and make sure you are there for the beginning of the scheduled time slot.
PANELS & STAGES
Are these included in the price of my ticket?
Panel, screenings and theatre sessions that happen within show opening hours are included in the ticket price. Anything out of hours, such as evening screenings, may incur an additional cost.
Can I stay in the theatres all day?
The Main and Centre Stages are cleared after every panel, but you are welcome to stay in any of our other theatres for a panel session later in the day.
Will stands take my debit/credit card?
Some stalls do take debit/credit cards but not all of them. We do recommend you bring cash with you.
My wristband is broken, what do I do?
You cannot remove your wristband if you are attending for the full weekend. Your wristband should not break. If it does you will need to prove that you attended the event on the day before in the form of a photograph with your wristband on.
Will I be filmed or photographed?
Yes. Our events attract a local and national press and it is within the terms and conditions of your attendance that you may be filmed.
Can I bring my own food & drink?
Yes. We recommend you bring lots of water and you are allowed to bring in your own snacks and sandwiches.
Can I get changed into my cosplay at the event?
Yes! Head over to Cosplay Central for changing areas.
The wristband won't fit over my cosplay, what can I do?
You must not remove your wristband over the weekend.
Unfortunately your wristband must be visible throughout the whole of the weekend so you will have to plan your cosplay accordingly. If your wristband is removed or cannot be seen you will be denied entry into the event.
Can my child attend without an adult?
We recommend all children under the age of 12 attend with an adult. Children over the age of 12 can attend at the parent’s discretion. It is a very large event and we cannot accept responsibility of every child.
