Chesterfield Unleashed comic-con

Chesterfield Unleashed Comic-Con will come to Queens Park Sports Centre on Sunday 17th October 2021.

Initially comic-cons used to be events focusing on comic books and comic book culture, however, nowadays comic-cons cover a multi-genre entertainment such as films, TV and gaming and have made being ‘geeky’ cool. A comic-con is a brief escape from reality where pop culture, ie sci-fi, superheroes, zombies, fantasy, etc., can be experienced all in one room.

Guests include:

  • The Dark Lord, Darth Vadar aka Spencer Wilding available for you to meet and he is sure to entice you over to the Dark Side of the comic-con galaxy.
  • Phill Martin is a giant of an actor, standing at 7ft tall, and he has used this to his advantage gaining roles as a ‘Ghost Engineer’ for Ridley Scott in Prometheus, he then quickly went on to secure roles in Jack the Giant Slayer and Joe Wright’s Pan.
  • Billy Mansell actually started his acting career after attending comic-cons as a cosplayer.  Billy is a huge fan of Alien and had a dream come true when he secured a role on set playing an iconic engineer.  Billy’s film roles didn’t stop there and he landed parts in big films such as Jurassic World 2, Fantastic Beasts 2 (Crimes of Grindlewold) Detective Pikachu and king of Thieves Mission Impossible Fallout.

All three actors are available to meet as well as to sign photo’s or memorabilia as well as offer advice to any budding Chesterfield actors.

Whether you are a fan of the Steven Spielberg’s classic thriller, Jaws, or simply just a fan of sharks then you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to have your photo taken…..not alongside it but inside it!  Climb aboard the deck, come face to face with the black eyes of a killer, lie inbetween his pearly whites and make sure you have got yours showing for the camera!  Prefer something more mischievous then hop over to the Gremlins cinema set, toss some popcorn just keep them away from liquids!

If you are unafraid of ghosts and into an awesome movie then you will love the Slimer display, however, walking around the venue there will be lots of photo opportunities to be had!  You won’t be able to miss seeing the massive Transformers Bumblebee, the Superheroes Cosplay Group, The Mos Eisley Misfits in their Star Wars costumes and even a couple of Daleks…exterminate, exterminate!

As well as guests and attractions there are comic creators, authors and loads of geeky traders with tons of geeky toys, comics, collectables, art, jewellery, VR gaming and so much more…there is something for everyone!    You can also enhance your day by coming along dressed as a TV, movie, game or anime character and entering our cosplay competition with a chance to win some amazing geeky goodies.  If you don’t want to dress up simply just come along dressed as a Muggle!
