Monopoly Events is delighted to announce that it is bringing Comic Con to the county of Yorkshire, at the Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate.
The date of the first event will be Saturday June 3rd and Sunday June 4th, a two day event running 9am-6pm each day.
Yorkshire has always been on the organiser’s radar due to feedback from events around the U.K. People wanted a Comic Con in Yorkshire after becoming frustrated at having to travel long distances to other Comic Con shows held around the country, for example; Manchester, Liverpool and Edinburgh.
Organisers spent a long time scouring other venues before picking the YEC as the ideal location thanks to it being the largest space with potential for growth in the region.
Organisers are aiming for a sell out event, appealing to the community to build support by following their social media pages and subscribing to newsletters. Visitors are also asked to buy tickets early as they go on sale at 7pm Thursday December 15 – just in time for Christmas!
Andy Kleek CEO of Monopoly Events said: “We want to build a solid sell out show over the next two years and make this into another one of our flagship Monopoly shows, for all our fans in the Yorkshire area.
“We are very excited to be working with the Yorkshire Event Centre who have the same passion we do about building this event. As with all our shows we have a three- year roadmap which we will be looking to extend for many years afterwards. Expect big guests, amazing set and prop builds, major attractions, cosplay, anime, traders, gaming and more. Thank you for the support and we will make a show the people of Yorkshire can be proud of!”
Heather Parry, managing director of the Yorkshire Event Centre said: “We are delighted to be hosting this exciting new event and we look forward to working with Monopoly on its amazing debut in Yorkshire.”
