MCM Comic Con Sets Oct/Nov Return Dates For London & Birmingham In 2021
Out of the many (many!) things that sucked in 2020, one of the things we missed most was the cancellation of the geek mecca that is MCM Comic-Con. Today, the lovely folk at Reepop have announced when the two biggest physical Cons, Birmingham and London, will return in 2021, along with some more virtual Cons throughout the year.
First, the big news – MCM London will return on 22-24 October 2021 and MCM Birmingham will return on 13-14 November 2021. Tickets for these shows will be available online prior to each event, and additional information regarding the show format and health and safety measures that will be put in place will be announced in the coming months. Due to COVID, these will be the only two physical Con by MCM in 2021, which means no MCM Birmingham in March, MCM London in May, or MCM Manchester and MCM Scotland this year, which is a shame, but totally understandable.
In the meantime, MCM is planning to kick-off Con season this year with a spring Metaverse event, followed by virtual events set for the summer. Through Metaverse, fans can virtually experience a 365-day celebration of all things pop culture including access to exclusive content, nerdy merch, and one-of-a-kind celebrity experiences, making it easier for more people to enjoy the MCM Comic Con experience remotely through FindtheMetaverse.com.
“We want to thank our fans for waiting patiently during this challenging and unprecedented time while we focus on bringing them the best pop culture events in the UK in a safe, responsible and fun way,” commented Teresa Heitor, MCM Comic Con Event Director at ReedPop. “The enjoyment and wellbeing of our attendees, guests and community remains our top priority. We can’t wait to gather with you all again and until then, our team remains hard at work to continue creating events with the superior quality content and show experiences that we know our fans expect.”
