Comic Con Liverpool has grown to become the biggest one in the UK outside London, is bringing an impressive line-up of appearances from stars such as Orlando Bloom, Catherine Tate, Jared Padalecki, Andy Serkis and Elijah Wood.

At Comic Con Liverpool, as well as the chance to meet their heroes, fans will also be able to have their picture taken with unique set-builds and props, plus pick up the perfect gift on the show floor and try their hand at retro and modern gaming.

“We are incredibly excited to be part of Comic Con Liverpool 2024 and can’t wait to kick off our schedule of events. The convention always attracts huge numbers of visitors to the city, so we’re thrilled to be able to extend the action beyond the main event and offer visitors something extra to enjoy in the run-up to May 4th.

Working with a range of local cosplay groups, we’ve put together a line-up that is guaranteed to get everyone in the mood during Easter and April ahead of Comic Con and give visitors those all-important selfie moments!”

Donna Howitt, Place Strategy Director at Liverpool ONE

“This year, Comic Con Liverpool is expanding into the M&S Bank Arena. The growth and scale of this show is incredible, and we didn’t want to stop there! We’ve worked in partnership with Liverpool ONE to celebrate our show even further and can’t wait to put out that ‘Comic Con feeling’ to our local audience and visitors! There’s no place like Liverpool ONE, and certainly no place like Comic Con, so it’s an ideal match.”
