Commando and British Weekly Comic Swap Meet comes to Colchester in October

Commando and British Weekly Comic Swap Meet - Saturday 14th October 2023, Colchester

The 12th Commando and British Weekly Comic Swap Meet will take place in Colchester on Saturday 14th October 2023.

The popular collectors event will place from 11.00am at the Colchester Baptist Church on Eld Lane in the heart of the town, a new venue complementing previous the successful Stoke, Watford and Glasgow events, raising funds for the 12th Colchester Sea Scout group.

Guest announcements will be made soon. 

The hall is substantial and a wide variety of dealers will have thousands of comics on offer at this eclectic and welcoming comic event, for collectors and readers of all budgets. Buy, sell, swop – and there will also be a bring and buy donation table, and food available (tea, coffee and traditional bacon baps), too.
