We all know Comic Conventions have been pretty much postponed if not cancelled for the foreseeable and those that are booking are still not quite 100% – the landscape is ever-changing just like the rules.
All around the UK rule changes are causing much confusion for us all but with Wales allowing indoor events and markets, we at Sin City Comics & Gaming were able to reopen our gaming floor back in May and the next stage to our plans is to bring back the comic fair!
Our first was in February 2020 which was such a resounding success that the next one in April was fully booked by the end of the day!
Sadly, as we all know, life got pretty much cancelled last year and the first near half of 2021 with constant ongoing changes in what we are allowed to do or in most cases not allowed to do but we’ve seen most of it out and despite various challenges along the way we have seen it through!
Now it’s time to get back into it all and go all out! So….SATURDAY 21ST AUGUST we bring back Newport’s Comic Fair to Sin City Comics & Gaming!
It’s free entry and will consist of local traders with custom bespoke products as well as bringing you two of the best artists from Newport who create multiple commissions for Topps Cards including Star Wars, Stranger Things and so much more.
If you’re a trader and would love to be at our event please click the link to the book. We welcome all kinds of traders as long as you are appropriate to the genre of our industry. The only restriction is Funko Pops – any trader who sells these will not be able to.
You can book via the website, the table arrangement information is detailed in the product description and we ask that you add what you sell and any other information you wish to share or request, please add it to the comments box on the checkout page so we know what you are selling, therefore, we can plan the ranges accordingly.
Purchase as normal and use the local pickup option not the £5 flat shipping rate.
It couldn’t be a better time after such a long period of time no one could play their favourite TCGs outside their bubbles. Not only can you now, but we are the UK host for the 2021 Dragon Ball Super Card Game regionals! This is a very exciting announcement for us and we hope for you too!
