Yorkshire Comic Con Weekender 2018

Yorkshire Comic Con Weekender 2018

Yorkshire Comic Con Weekender, Driffield Showground, 18th - 20th May 2018

It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the Yorkshire Comic Con Weekender is being postponed for this year.
We know many of you who purchased tickets and put time aside to attend will be disappointed, but rest assured we have not taken this decision lightly. We will be hosting the weekender event next year on an even bigger scale than we had planned and hope to share what we have in store very soon.

The postponing of the festival until next year sadly means we will have to cancel its related events: Driffield Comic Con, Dominic Glynn Live and Professor Elemental Live.
We will be contacting all ticket holders soon to arrange full refunds and we apologise for any issues the cancellation has caused.

To keep up to date with all the exciting future developments please follow us on social media and sign up for our news letter.


A 3 day comic con festival with camping / caravanning!

Bring your tent or caravan and join us for 3 days of comic con and partying, at the huge Driffield Showground. 

Join us Friday the 18th of May and after pitching your tent come down to the bar where you will be entertained by Professor Elemental.Professor Elemental has created a unique neo-Victorian blend of hip hop and comedy, and is the man behind the youtube hits, Cup Of Brown Joy and Fighting Trousers. His music charts subjects such as steam-powered flight, lovely horses, strange inventions and a nice cup of tea. With a heart of brass and a pair of goggles, he embodies the Victorian spirit of invention and exploration. We will then follow on to a disco and bar till 1am

Wake up Saturday morning and have a shower in one of the site shower blocks ready for the Comic Con to start at 10am. We will have comic artists and special guests from TV & Film who will be doing signings, talks and photoshoots. There will be activities for the kids including inflatables, face painting and various kids activities in the club house. We will also have the awesome Keep It Retro with us fulfilling  all your retro gaming needs as well as table top and more recent consoles. For those wishing to cosplay we will be running a competition for both adults and children with prizes to be won!  Add to this an array of awesome traders for all your geeky shopping! 

On the night we have  Dominic Glynn appearing in the bar. From composing music for Red Dwarf, The Simpsons and Donald Trump Documentaries, to performing DJ sets at The Big Chill Festival, Dominic Glynn has an exciting musical career. Most importantly he was responsible for some of the most iconic incidental music in Doctor Who between 1986 and 1989 including the version of the them tune used in the era of sixth Doctor Colin Baker. Dominic will be performing live versions of his recent series of Doctor Who Remixes with an amazing multimedia show. This will be followed by a bar and disco till 1am.
