Comic Con Manchester is the largest pop culture con in the UK. Held at the Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester, England, July 27 and 29, 2024, the event attracts over 10,000 fans each year. With a variety of celebrity guests from movies, TV, streaming, gaming, anime, and sports entertainment, this is one convention you won't want to miss. This year, the con will host an outstanding list of talent from The Walking Dead universe.

The event features many notable guests that fans have the opportunity to meet, get autographs, and photo ops with. Several celebrities will be featured in panels where they talk about their new and old projects.

Comic Con Manchester (CCM) offers standard entry tickets as well as early entry and falls into three categories: Infant (0-4), Concession (5-9), and Standard (10+). Diamond Passes are also available, which include a line jump at the main entry, photo areas, and autograph tables. Tickets can be purchased at the CCM site.

CCM hosts an after-party on Saturday, the location of which is kept secret until a few weeks before the event. The party features a DJ, cosplay, a live stage, and special guests. All celebs are invited, so you never know who will attend, but there is no guarantee.

CCM also hosts a cosplay competition. There are two cosplay events, Cosplay Championship, for experienced cosplayers to compete for prizes, and the Cosplay Masquerade, a more relaxed event.
