Big Glasgow Comic Page (BGCP) will be bringing its travelling ComiCon to Inverness Leisure for the first time ever, opening doors to members of the public on Saturday 29th July from 10am to 4pm.
Attendees can expect a fun day out that is suitable for all ages and budgets, with tickets starting from as little as £1 and all children under 5 years old welcomed in free-of-charge.
The exciting new event is set to include over 60 traders and artists selling merch from Marvel, DC, Pokémon, Star Wars, Dungeons & Dragons, and everything in-between.
Ian Bonar of BGCP said:
“BGCP first started plans to run in Inverness back in 2019, but due to the pandemic it was postponed – until now, having confirmed Inverness Leisure as the venue.
“Attendees and fans can get free pictures with movie props, statues, and of course the chance to meet all their favourite heroes and villains such as Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Spider-Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, Pikachu, Ghostbusters, Characters from Star Wars and much more.
“BGCP run Comic Conventions in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Loch Lomond, Ayrshire, Dundee, Fife, Aberdeen and now Inverness looks to become an annual event given how quickly tickets are selling.”
The event has proved popular in its run up, with all workshop tickets selling out in advance for: Jurassic Class, Slime Making and Hero Mask Making.
As well as these sold-out workshops, there will also be movie and TV props to inspect, arcade machines and consoles to get your game on, and character meet and greets for fans to get a photo opportunity in.
To top it all off, BGCP ComiCon Inverness is running a Cosplay Competition, which quickly had its 100 RSVP spots filled by eager fans.
Ian Munro, High Life Highland’s Assistant Leisure Manager at Inverness Leisure, added:
“We are delighted to welcome ComiCon to Inverness Leisure as it is another first for High Life Highland to host such a huge event.
“Inverness Leisure is the biggest leisure facility in the Highlands, and we take pride on hosting various major events such like music concerts and gymnastics competitions.
“We very much look forward to working alongside the organisers of the ComiCon to ensure it is a major success for the area as well as for families to enjoy what is on offer throughout the day.
“Get your tickets whilst you can, as it sure will be an amazing show!”
Steve Walsh, High Life Highland’s Chief Executive, concluded:
“High Life Highland is excited by the opportunity to pilot BGCP’s ComiCon at Inverness Leisure this year.
“With such an eclectic series of events and activities planned for the day at such an affordable price tag, Inverness ComiCon is sure to be a hit for the local community, and a point of pride for High Life Highland.”
