Meeting monsters at the Motorpoint Arena

Meeting monsters at the Motorpoint Arena

Film & Comic Con Cardiff is back at the Motorpoint Arena Cardiff this weekend (23 and 24 September) – a great opportunity to meet stars of the screen, buy comic and movie souvenirs – and meet a few monsters!

We bumped into a whole range of characters from comic books, TV and film, as we browsed the arena today (Saturday) – from Deadpool to Snow White and Daenerys Targaryen to Doctor Who.

Activities include photo shoots with the stars, panels, autograph sessions, retro video gaming, cosplay masquerade and hundreds of stalls full of TV, film and comic memorabilia to browse and buy.

Among the more surprising items on sale were cup cakes and Lord of the Rings-style model Hobbit houses, among a huge array of photos, artwork, posters, models, costumes, comics and books.

The big names appearing over the weekend include former Doctor Who actors Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy, and performers from Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Transformers, and more.

If you’re interested in TV, film or comic books, Film and Comic Con Cardiff is definitely worth checking out, and there’s another full day tomorrow (Sunday).

Doors open at 9am – 6pm both days. Entry costs £8 from 11 am, or £15 from 9 am. There’s more info on the event website here.
