You can buy tickets for your friends and family as gifts, yes! Just make sure they activate their own ticket using the MCM Comic Con app so it has their details associated with the physical ticket at the show.

You can get 20% off your tickets when ordering squad bundles for Friday or Sunday. This is for groups of 5 wanting Priority tickets for MCM Comic Con.

MCM Comic Con has two different entry time slots to the show. Priority and Weekend tickets can enter at our earlier entry time, and General ticket holders can enter at the later time. Timings can be found here or on the back of your MCM ticket.

Please note, Priority tickets will not grant earlier access times to panels or in queues.

The ticket collection desk and queue hall opens around an hour before the show starts each day, and slightly earlier on the Saturday.

Any! As long as there is an adult ticket holder with any of our ticket types, kids 10 and under go free to our shows!

On the way into MCM, wearing your ticket is really important for security and for navigating queues. Once you’re inside, it helps us and venue security to quickly identify that you are a ticket holder.

If you buy your MCM tickets before the mailing deadline, then your physical tickets will be posted straight to your door. This means that when you get to MCM Comic Con and have been through bag checks, you can walk straight into the show. If you didn’t get your tickets delivered, once you’re through bag check you’ll need to collect your tickets from the collection desk in the queue hall.

  • My tickets haven’t arrived in the post yet! We mail out tickets 3-4 weeks ahead of the show, so it may just be that they haven’t been sent just yet. Once they have left us, you’ll receive a tracking number for the courier so you can stay up to date with where your MCM tickets are! If you are getting worried, it’s worth checking the status of your delivery with the courier, or reaching out to them if you want to know more about your parcel. 

  • Why do I need to pick up my tickets if I opted for a mobile QR code? We all hate queuing, but it’s sadly a part of Con life. Wearing your physical tickets helps to speed up queues and quickly identify where you should be. The show entry times for Priority (including Weekend) and General tickets differ. Wearing your physical ticket helps security to quickly identify where you need to be and help you navigate the queues.
