UK and Irish Comic Conventions – Rolling List

Last Updated: Wednesday 14th October 2020

This is the downthetubes “rolling list” of major British and Irish comic events, intended as a quick guide to “What’s On”. Follow the links to event web sites for fuller details.

COVID-19 has impacted events in the UK, and internationally, throughout 2020. We are adding 2021 dates where known. Some postponed events have yet to announce new dates, simply because of continued uncertainty caused by the Pandemic.

Most major events plan ahead and commit to their dates, because of upfront organisational costs, as much as eight to six months in advance – for example, paying for international flights and making group accommodation bookings for planned guests.

Because of this, it’s very likely we will see cancellations of events into 2021, so as we always do, please follow the links for the latest information about plans for your preferred events. Organisers are responding to government guidance that sometimes is decided very late as far as any advance planning is concerned and, in turn, governments are responding to events as they happen, not in six months time.

Responsible event organisers are very conscious of fan concerns and will endeavour to keep them informed.

The UK NHS has a page here with details of latest information on the coronavirus, COVID-19, and the UK government’s response to the emergency is here, with links to other information.

For worldwide information on COVID-19 check the World Health Organisation Page

Thank you to everyone who has supplied information and apologies if I haven’t added your event yet. Please do also check out our Events News and Exhibition News news streams

As ever, information is welcome: here’s how to contact us. If you don’t see your date added to this list, please re-send the information as it’s entirely possible, given the huge amount of email received, that we’ve missed it first time around – sorry!

Booking.com Logo

Also, if you’re going to send events information, check the links in your mail actually work… I’ve had more than one organiser who’s sent me information with dead web links recently.

Please do not assume we will see a convention announcement on Facebook, Twitter or other social media.

Where no date is listed, we have where possible based an event’s dates within the usual month they take place each year.

If you’re looking for hotel accommodation near your comics event, why not give Booking.com a try? (affiliate link)

Usually mid July
Web: smallpressday.co.uk | 2019 Events Listing (2020 was online only)

Events around the UK in local comic shops and other venues, promoting independent comic press and micro publishers.

In 2016 an idea born on Twitter led to a series of nationwide events in a matter of weeks. The inaugural Small Press Day – a celebratory event designed to spotlight the possibilities of small press publishing and to introduce its practitioners to the far wider audience they deserve – proved to be a phenomenal success. No less than 25 events championing the small press were held across the UK and Ireland on the same day in July – including shop signings, fairs, panels and workshops – resulting in #SmallPressDay to trend throughout.

Building on this trend, hundreds and hundreds joined in for Small Press Day 2017 and Small Press Day 2018 and met with the next generation of superstar comic creators, zine makers, and DIY micro publishers.
