Great attempt for a first comic-con. The cosplay could have been organised a bit better (other cons I've been to have had a catwalk approach to cosplay where you can see the costumes, and where it took place was a bit dark). Also the talks could've taken place in a quieter part away from the main hall. But apart from that it was a very enjoyable couple of days. Enjoyed meeting Virginia Hey, Chris Barrie and listening to Colin Baker.

Review of Gloucester Comic-Con 2016

Not a huge event that took place in Gloucester's GL1 sports hall. Really good atmosphere though, lots of visitors really entered the spirit dressed up as many different characters. There were a number of celebrities lined up for autographs and plenty of merchandise stalls. Would go again and happy to recommend.

Review of Gloucester Comic-Con 2016

Very good for a first time, I did expect it to be a tad bigger but hey, great for a first gig. The only thing I feel that let it down a tad was the entrance, OK it was around the corner but a nice banner above it would have made all the difference and been a bit more welcoming.

Needed a separate room for the talks or more reliable PA, also was very small, not as many stalls as I expected. I appreciate this is the 1st year, so I hope they can improve in the years to come.

Gloucester Comic-Con 2016, 8th-9th October 2016.

First of all, the venue was very easy to find. From the center of town it was about a 5 minute walk to get there. Once I arrived there was a queue but it moved along very quickly and after a few mins I was inside. Once inside there was a variety of things to do; look at the various geek and comic stores, get signed pics and photos with the celeb guests, look at all of the amazing (and sometimes silly or crazy) people in costumes and just take in the amazing atmosphere that is ComicCon.

Positives:
* Very easy to get to
* Loads of parking in town/ Bus station/ Nearby train station
* Small or no queues
* Lots of stalls to look at

Negatives (I understand that a few of these are just because it is Gloucester's very first Con)
* Not many high rated celebrity's
* Stall prices were in general a lot more expensive than elsewhere or online
* Venue was very cramped, either space could be used more effectively or the event could space several halls/rooms
