Once again we attended this event as ‘Official Press’ thanks to Showmasters !!!!
Held at the London Olympia during the weekend of 2nd – 3rd March 2019.
Guests that attended this weekends event included:-
- George Lazenby (James Bond),
- Tom Baker (Doctor Who),
- Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street),
- Peter Mayhew (Star Wars),
- Jack Gleeson (Game Of Thrones).
The first LCC Spring offered Autograph & Photo opportunities with stars from TV & Film covering a wide variety of interests and genres alongside other fun attractions and activities; some of which are detailed below.
Here are some general photos from the event:
This event had dedicated areas for other interests such as:-
- Video gaming – The Gaming Zone at London Comic Con Spring enabled attendees to play classic retro games.
- Comics – An event within an event, the Comic Zone is where fans and newcomers can explore the myriad worlds of sequential art. From superheroes to the cutting edge all aspects of the art form can be found within – you could even meet famous comic creators in this area.
- Cosplay – The Cosplay Zone was the area to visit to see all the amazing costumed visitors and featured some great photo opportunities with some professional Cosplayers.
There were also:-
- Specialist talks and Q&A panels with the stars including a Doctor Who panel, a Q&A with Ted Raimi and a tutorial on SFX Makeup.
- Many stalls selling a variety of merchandise for all attendees geeky needs including, the limited edition #SuperMario clothing and collectable range entitled ‘Original Hero’ that was available at the Zavvi stand.
- There was also ‘iconic movie vehicle’ and prop replicas for attendees to snap a photo with including George Lazenby with an Aston Martin DB5, a replica TARDIS Console and a custom VENOM Nissan GT-R.
The spring edition of LCC (LFCC) is a smaller scale version of the summer event. However this is not necessarily a bad thing. This allows a smoother experience moving around the stalls, queuing for quests and experiencing the panels in one of the side rooms usually used for ‘top tier’ guests during the summer con.
This con is ideal for families with small children and those attendees who enjoy a less fast paced atmosphere.
We look forward to Showmasters next event Cardiff Film and Comic Con (CFCC) next weekend 9th-10th March!
