Comic Con Brings Geeky Festivities Back To Bolton The much loved family friendly event Bolton Comic Con is back for its fifth year at the university of Bolton Stadium on 22nd February, and it’s bringing along a fantastic array of attractions, displays, and so much more.
Headlining the guest actors this year is Game of Thrones’ Richard Brake, better known as the infamous Night King. He will be joined by fellow Game of Thrones actor Clive Mantle, English rock musician, actor, writer and performance artist Mat Fraser, Spencer Wilding who played Darth Vader in Star Wars Rogue One, and Nikki Diamond who fans will remember as Scorpio from the nineties television show Gladiators.
They will be meeting and greeting the public, signing autographs, and taking part in interviews. Among the attractions this year include a host of film replica displays, including the iconic Simpson’s couch, Harry Potter’s platform 9 and 3/4, and a terrifyingly realistic Jaws display.
Con-goers will even have the opportunity to take part in a photoshoot in a Gremlins scene. Costume characters play a large role in comic conventions, and at Bolton children and adults alike will be wowed by Star Wars characters, Transformers’ Bumblebee, a Marvel Hulkbuster, Paw Patrol’s Chase, and many other familiar faces.
From comic artists, to Virtual Reality, to retro gaming, to exciting trader tables with geeky souvenirs, there’s lots going on during the day for all ages to enjoy.
Organiser Paul Prescott of NWCC Events said “Despite it being quite large, this is a friendly local event for the people of Bolton, and I always ensure there’s a good mix of different things to see and do so that everyone can get involved.” For more information regarding the event, search on Facebook for Bolton Comic Con 2020
