Event Reporters – Lewis Mainwaring & Ben Gummery
This was our third ‘con’ as ‘Official Press’ thanks to Showmasters !!!! Held at the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena the home of South Wales geekery.
- Peter Mayhew (Star Wars),
- Jemma Redgrave (Doctor Who),
- Daniel Kash (Aliens),
- Deborah Watling (Doctor Who – Classic Series),
- Danny John Jules (Red Dwarf),
- Ryan Gage (The Musketeers).
Many visitors to the convention were in Cosplay – which has become part of the ‘con’ experience. Highly influenced by recent films there where many Deadpool and Kylo Ren (Star Wars Episode VII) cos-players !!!!!
Located in the Comic Zone was numerous comic book artists and writers such as Dan Slott (writer: Amazing Spider-man) and Jorge Molina (artist: A-Force).
There was a wide range of stalls selling all types of merchandise, artwork, comics, costumes etc. Here’s our geeky purchases from the event.
We were able to interview Geoffrey Beevers who played The Master on Doctor Who in the 1981 serial The Keeper of Traken.
Overall, we really enjoyed our time at FCCC. Bring on the next one !!!!
