The wait is over, MCM Comic Con is back this autumn returning to NEC Birmingham from the 11th – 13th November. Grab your tickets and head down for an unforgettable celebration of all things pop culture!

Great news for both first timers and fans, MCM will be returning with a jam-packed programme full of incredible content for everyone to enjoy! There’ll be an endless supply of jaw dropping performances, exciting celebrity guest appearances, inspiring panels from the very best of film and TV, independent creators and so much more!

Film and TV buffs rejoice, there are a whole host of exclusive celebrity guests ready to meet you all! Kicking off the all-star line-up is none other than American actor and Golden Globe winner Ron Perlman, best known for his unmatched performance in the hugely popular Hellboy franchise, the incredible Sons of Anarchy and amazing sci-fi monster film Pacific Rim. Ron will be appearing on both Saturday and Sunday at MCM Birmingham, giving fans plenty of time to secure both photographs and autographs with the legend himself!

Adding to the unforgettable line-up, get ready to rumble with WWE champions and formidable female fighters, Mickie James and Trish Stratus. Both Mickie and Trish will be appearing all weekend long at the knock-out MCM Birmingham.

For the Anime fans, look no further… iconic actors Sonny Strait and Luci Christian, best known for hugely popular Anime series My Hero Academia, the fantastic One Piece and arguably Sonny’s most prolific role to date, Dragon Ball Z, will be entertaining the Birmingham con and meeting fans across the full weekend. Keep an eye out for more exciting guest announcements coming soon too.

If the guest line-up wasn’t enough, get ready for a fully loaded show filled to the brim of exhilarating experiences! Don’t miss Cosplay Central, the hotspot for cosplayers of all ages and abilities, with exciting panels about creating your own costume from members of the cosplay community. From casual and kids showcases and the awe-inspiring Cosplay Masquerade to the theatrical Cosplay Central Crown Championships, there’s plenty to sink your teeth into.

New for this year, out of this world cosplayers, Cowbutt Crunchies will be guest judges for the Crown Championships. If that wasn’t enough the dynamic duo will also be bringing their Cosplay Met Gala to Birmingham for the first time in Europe. A hugely popular part of the cons in the USA, the galas are inspired by the prestigious high fashion benefit in New York and celebrates the craftsmanship and the creativity of blending geeky design with couture fashion. The theme for Birmingham is 'Regal and Rustic' but don’t panic if your carefully crafted costume starts falling apart, just head to the cosplay hospital and get fixed up ready to get back on the show floor!

Perfect for family fun…Let the kids run wild in the Treehouse area and discover a world of crafts including face-painting, comic creation and mask making, plus a standout programme of family-friendly interactive sessions and entertaining performances to keep little ones busy all weekend long. Plus kids under 10 go free with an adult ticket holder! Why not pick up a Family Passport from the Treehouse area to join an exciting scavenger hunt around the MCM show floor, with a chance to win tickets to the next show!

Explore Pop Asia, the perfect place for the curious mind to immerse themselves in exciting cultures and learn something new. Hone your paper folding skills in the Origami workshop, try your hand at something new like the art of Manga drawing, or get involved with the action packed programme of dance performances, K-pop sing-alongs, martial arts demos, live podcasts and more!

Jenny Martin, Event Director at MCM Comic Con said:MCM Birmingham is such a special event for us as it only comes round once a year. After the overwhelmingly positive response to the show last year, we can’t wait to show Birmingham what’s on offer this time round! We have such an incredible selection of guests and panels in the pipe line with some fantastic announcements still to come, so grab your tickets to avoid missing out!”
