GeekedFest is a brand new Film & Comic convention coming to the Newport Centre, South Wales on August 8th & 9th.
The idea came from some local comic book fans who wanted to see an event in their area and decided to make it happen; headed up by Shane Richard Jordan (owner of the nearby Sin City Comics in Cwmbran) & Chris Muscat.
You can expect the event to offer something for everyone with autographs and photo opportunities with the stars, Q+A sessions, cosplay activities, varied stalls and exhibits.
