London set for record-breaking MCM expo

Thousands of sci-fi and fantasy enthusiasts are expected to turn out for the London Comic Con at the Excel centre this weekend, with attendees anticipating the usual combination of interesting merchandise and fantastic cosplay, as well as the opportunity to meet their heroes.

And this is exactly what they'll get. Indeed, more floor space than ever before has been dedicated to the unique extravaganza, and the organisers have committed to fitting in additional exhibitions and stallholders.

Highlights will no doubt include the usual Pop Asia segment, where attendees can get a taste of Japanese culture, MCM eSports where gamers can compete against one another, and the MCM Theatre where cosplayers dressed as their favourite anime characters will strut their stuff.

Webcomic fans are advised to walk among the stalls in the Comic Village, where you can expect to meet authors of successful webcomics including Kate Ashwin of the Widdershins series and the team of creatives behind Romantically Apocalyptic.

Where the list of celebrities is concerned, attendees will no doubt want to get the autograph of former Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, who will be present to promote his new film 'Horns'.

Other notable names include Primeval actor Andrew-Lee Potts, Hunger Games actress Stef Dawson and the cast of the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, who will be making their first UK appearance at the exposition.

"MCM London Comic Con is coming up fast and we are excited at the rate of growth - 12,000 square metres additional space, more exhibitors and more than a 30 per cent increase in advance sales," Bryan Cooney, MCM expo co-organiser told EN.
"One thing's for sure; it's going to be a wild ride for organisers, exhibitors and visitors alike over the three days at Excel," he added.
