Also this year, MCM Comic Con introduces a series of new workshops, designed to help create, learn and inspire! From starting your own comic book; diving into game development; creating the perfect on screen superhero, world building in your first fantasy novel, to perfecting that cosplay prop – MCM is now offering fans the chance to be inspired with these hands-on workshops. Booking is essential and will be available on the website.
For parents and younger guests, The Treehouse is a place where families can relax and recharge, with free face painting, a reading corner, and toys to play with. There’s enough to entertain even the smallest superheroes.
