Cardiff Comic Expo moves dates for 2013

Last month, the UK hosted two Comic Conventions, one in Cardiff and the new Super Con in London…. on the same weekend. The clash clearly had an impact on numbers and the range of creators attending each, and now it would appear this might happen again in 2013.

Rather than risk another clas, the Cardiff Expo has moved its dates to 2nd – 3rd March.

“To let the new boys have some space we have moved the Cardiff Expo,” says organiser Mike Allwood, “which means we are running the Cardiff Expo as near to St Davids Day as we can – and what better time to host it!

“Expect the same mix of Special Guests, Comics, Animation, Anime & Manga, Cosplay, Horror showcase, Small Press, Doctor Who and thoseEXpo EXclusives plus who knows what else we’ll add!
