UK and Irish Comic Conventions – Rolling List

Last Updated: Wednesday 8th April 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.

“UK and Irish Comic Conventions – Rolling List” on downthetubes, updated Tuesday 8th April 2020. COVID-19 is unfortunately impacting events in the UK, and internationally, for early 2020.

At present, the initial impact of the Pandemic is affecting all events through to the end of May and some in June. We have now removed any cancelled events and added their 2021 dates where known; some postponed events have yet to announce new dates in 2020.

Major comic-focused festivals such as ELCAF, the Lakes International Comic Art Festival and Thought Bubble are currently continuing as planned at present, but organisers will respond to government guidance closer to their dates.

In view of escalating concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19, we strongly urge convention attendees to monitor upcoming event web sites and social media outlets for developments that may affect them. Responsible event organisers are very conscious of fan concerns and will endeavour to keep them informed, but you should also be aware that the situation is changing daily, and in response to the advice of government and health services.

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!

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.

Small Press Day 2020
Saturday 18th July 2020
Web: smallpressday.co.uk | 2019 Events Listing

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. The team behind this annual celebration made Small Press Day 2019 bigger, better, and bolder.
