GeekedFest Ltd has announced that the ‘GeekedFest’ event will be returning to Newport for the second year running on 6th & 7th August at the Newport Centre.
‘GeekedFest’ is Newport’s own Film/TV & comic book convention and visitors can expect celebrity guests from the world of Film, TV & beyond who will be offering autographs and photo opportunities. There will also be many stalls selling all variety of comic books, memorabilia, toys & crafts as well as many Film/TV exhibits, gaming & cosplay zones and family-friendly activities. The event also hopes to raise money for several local charities.
GeekedFest was started in 2015 by local business-man Shane Richard Jordan who also launched his own comic-book shop ‘Sin City Comics’ in Cwmbran the same year.
“We are committed to providing a fun, safe and friendly event for all involved and one that benefits our area; so that we can offer some-thing to locals that has up till now only been available at events in Cardiff “
“We had a great first event in 2015; however with the recent re-development of Newport’s town centre [Friars Walk] we are expecting this year’s event to be even bigger! We are also working with several local businesses that have recently moved to Friars Walk”
Shane Richard Jordan – Managing Director
