After much discussion, Melksham Comic-Con will be going on hiatus for 2017.

Our amazing team of volunteers have successfully executed five years of independent comic book conventions in Melksham, and they need a bit of a break!

Fear not though, as we will be returning with a brand new date – be sure to join us on the weekend of 7th and 8th July 2018!

We’re also still running our now famous fundraisers throughout 2017 – Quiz and Pudding Night 2017 and 1943 Stark Expo – Welcoming our US Allies to UK Shores!.

By taking a break we can build up our funds to bring you a stronger show in 2018 – as well as allowing our team to focus on their personal lives – please wish them luck as there will be two new babies born to the team, a wedding and our youngest volunteer moves up to secondary school, among many other events!

…So now we’ve told you that, it doesn’t really sound like we’re taking much of a break, does it?

We hope that you will continue to support us through next year, and be sure to put #melkshamcon 2018 in your diary now!
