I realise this was a small event but there was simply not enough there to justify the admission price.

Review of Brighton Beach Comic Con

Overall rating: 4

I think for a new Brighton Convention this was pretty good, It had some great guests to meet, wonderful stalls run by very friendly people and the staff were friendly and helpful throughout the day of the event. I think it would have been nicer it if was in a bigger venue as it felt very crowded and it was difficult to move around sometimes and I think there was a lack of guests too but to be fair there was some cancellations. But Overall a really great convention and I hope there will be another one in the future :)

Headline big names to sell tickets then strangely they all cancel. Venue was overcrowded. Hot. Noisy. More like a market than a convention. Gave 1 star but only cos I couldn't give zero. Massive emphasis on the word con.

I realised that was going to be a small con, but I thought I would spend at least a morning there instead me and my friend went around it 4 times in an hour! For 17 I would expected a bit more. I would of liked more guests as well. But the staff and venders where friendly and the cosplay area was good.

There was limited space, the only music I heard was from the Dr Who area which was the time warp on repeat. The ticket price was not worth the very limited event. Ultimately the only part I really enjoyed was talking to Alex Watts from YouTube and seeing my friends.

Review of Brighton Beach Comic Con

Been to 2 previous Brighton Comic Cons (which we really enjoyed) and this was terrible compared to the previous 2. All in one room, it was too small, too crowded, less stalls than usual. We were in and out in 5 minutes, with 2 extremely disappointed children. There was no opportinuty to stop at the minimal amount of stalls due to the pressure of people pushing through the small walkways. Spoke to a number of sellers who were also unhappy at the set-up. Complete waste of money, and after looking forward to it so much, heartbreaking to see my son in tears due to how poor this event was compared to the previous Comic Cons :-(

I really enjoyed myself but the venue unfortunately meant I had to leave within an hour. It was far too cramped, you could hardly move between the vendor stalls and people even get wheelchairs around properly because there just hadn't been enough space between the rows of vendor stalls. It was smaller overall that I thought it would be but with a better layout or at least spreading the vendors, guests and cosplay into separate rooms so that people weren't just standing around making it harder for people to enjoy themselves.

Review of Brighton Beach Comic Con

Too small a venue, one room for too many people. no cosplay competition, no panels, way too cramped. had a fun day but very disappointed with it as a whole.

The Grand Hotel wasn't really the right venue for the event - the room was way too small and hot. It would be better to have the stalls more spaced out so people could stop and look at things without being in the way - especially for the lad in the wheelchair. The prices were much cheaper than the usual London Comic Cons, which was nice, and the ticket prices weren't that bad. However it was a shame that some of the stars had pulled out at the last minute. Saying that, the stars that we met and chatted too were great, very friendly and relaxed. This, as well as the many Cos Players visiting the event made it a really chilled out and enjoyable event.

Review of Brighton Beach Comic Con

Lots of fun, lovely artwork, merchandise and plushies from a good range of shows. Friendly people working at the different stands. Nice layout if a bit crowded at points, but I've dealt with much worse and it was easy to get to a space to have a breather if needed. I don't believe there was much in the way of music? Though since the con was very lively it's possible it was just drowned out, and regardless didn't feel awkward in any very. I had a lovely time.

I really enjoyed it. Took my wife and 5 year old twins and we all dressed up and had fun - there was a real cool vibe to the event.

I would've liked a bit more more of a stage area where maybe guests/artists/actors would do a small talk with some Q&A sessions but maybe this took place in the VIP area.

We'll go again next year for sure :)
