Details
This year’s MCM London Comic Con has been postponed due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis. The event will now take place at its usual home, ExCel London, from 10-12 July 2020. (Fingers crossed). It was originally due to take place in May. Hopefully that’s not too much upheaval for those planning to go, although further developments will be announced depending on the length of the situation, which has led to self isolation and closures of pubs, restaurants and theatres. News of the postponement was confirmed on the event’s official website.

‘Having monitored the situation around COVID-19 constantly over these last few weeks, taking on board the feedback from the MCM community and this week’s advice from the UK Government regarding social distancing and avoiding crowds, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone MCM Comic Con London,’ a representative said. ‘We tried to do everything we could to run the event as planned, at all times following the protocols and advice set by the World Health Organisation, Public Health England and the relevant local authorities in London and the UK, however postponing is the responsible and right decision.’

London Comic-Con joins a long list of cancelled cultural and sporting events around the world, from Glastonbury to Coachella and there is ongoing speculation that the Olympics will eventually follow.
