MCM Comic Con Events in June, July, August and September Cancelled

The organisers of the MCM Comic Con brand, which see events take place in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Scotland, have today announced that all potentially planned events running until October 2020 have been cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 situation that is affecting the UK and across the globe.

The official announcement, which can be read below, confirms the cancellation of MCM Comic Con events that were due to take place in June, July, August and September; but the October event, which takes place in London, is not mentioned. It’s possible they are still looking to host an event in London during October but details have yet to be finalised.

An update on MCM Comic Con and COVID-19

It is with a heavy heart that we today announce the cancellation of MCM Birmingham Comic Con June, MCM London Comic Con July, MCM Manchester Comic Con August, and MCM Scotland Comic Con September following the escalation of COVID-19 in the UK, Europe, and globally.

Our aim since the beginning has always been to put on the best events for you as possible, a space for you to gather together, be yourselves, and make memories with those who matter to you most. Unfortunately, after extensive discussions with all the relevant public health, local and national authorities we have taken the difficult decision not to go ahead with the events at this time.

Refunds for ticket holders, pre-paid photo and autographs, exhibitors, retailers and artists will all be automatically processed, with no further action needed on your part. We aim to have all refunds processed before the end of June and we appreciate your continued patience and understanding.

Our hearts go out to everyone impacted by the COVID-19 virus, and to all of you, who look forward to our events year on year as a place of acceptance and safety. Rest assured, we are working hard to make sure that when safe to do so, we will return as a physical event, but until then we have plans to bring you all your comic con needs to the safety of your own homes, so stay tuned over the next few months!

Finally, we would like to say thank you for all the messages that we have received over the past few months. Your feedback has been invaluable in helping us determine next steps, and your patience and support during this challenging and unprecedented time whilst difficult decisions were being made has helped us every step of the way.
