Where is Huddersfield Comic-Con held?

Kirklees College, Waterfront Quarter, Manchester Road, Huddersfield. HD1 3HH

 

When is Huddersfield Comic-Con?

Saturday 6th May 2017

 

How do I get to the venue?

Being in the town centre all transport links are really good. The train station is about 10 minutes away by foot but there’s always taxis outside and the fee would be less than £4. The bus station is a 5 minute walk, and by car there’s plenty of car parks around although the college ones are out of action for the day as we have some amazing movie cars coming for your viewing pleasure!

 

What time does the event open and close?

It all starts at 10:30am for pre-bought ticket holders – The ticket office closes for Huddersfield Comic Con on Sunday 30th April. There will be tickets available on the day for CASH ONLY sales from 11:30am but priority access is to those with pre-bought tickets.

If we hit capacity for the building those with tickets will become a priority to gain access.

The event closes at 5pm.

 

Is Huddersfield Comic-Con and the venue disabled friendly?

Absolutely. It’s a college building so access links are great, there’s lifts, ramps and we’re using big open spaces and tall rooms to help those who struggle with being in large groups. The team involved with staffing the day have worked on various comic-cons, big sporting events and more so we are here to help and provide direction and assistance where ever needed to the visitors.

 

Am I allowed to take photographs and video?

As long as it is ok with the people you are taking photos/film of then yes. We actively encourage capturing memories of the day as it’s going to be a fab experience but please ask first – one of our big rules in the industry is Cosplay is Not Consent… That applies as much to taking a photo as it does to approaching and touching some in costume inappropriately. Remember, we’re all here to have a great day – that’s the whole point of the event. If you upload your photos to our facebook or twitter page using the #HuddsComicCon then we’ll be giving prizes out after the event so you may get very lucky!

 

Will I have my photo taken or end up on video?

It’s likely that you will in some form – however, as above, you should only be the main focus of a photo or filming if you’ve been asked first. If you feel someone has taken a photo or film and you are unhappy about this either speak to the person direct, who should offer to delete or destroy it, or if you are comfortable doing so, just ask one of the team to help.

Do guests sign autographs & other stuff?

Yes, that’s why they’re here – to meet their fans and sign memorabilia. Remember though, each artist has their own fee and we are not in control of that but you’ll generally find it’s lower at our event than the bigger conventions. Weirdest thing one of our guests has ever signed? Brian Wheeler, an ewok from Return of the Jedi among other things once signed a can of mushy peas… Long story!

 

Will I have to pay for photos with props and actors etc?

Many of the props and vehicles are brought at the cost of the event and the individuals who have brought them, and a lot of money is raised for charities by them. If there is a sign on the prop, or costumers have buckets with them, please donate what you can – we have kept the ticket price as low as possible to ensure those who are raising for charities can do so without feeling they’re asking you to dig too deep. Actors have fees for printed photoshoots, and there are costs involved in the photography, but again we negotiate to try and keep these as affordable as possible.

 

Will my photoshoot tickets & tees be delivered before the event?

No, your photoshoot tickets are ready for collection when you come in the event at the reception desk. Just bring proof of ID with you and we’ll hand them straight over…

Your tees can be collected before the event if you want them ahead of time, just let us know and we’ll either drop them at the college or we’ll arrange a collection.

 

Can I bring my own food and drink?

You can if you like but please make use of the seating spaces and litter bins. The hot food facility will also be open, and we’re literally across the road from the town centre so lots of different offers across there. Once you’ve got your wristband on you can come and go as you please so don’t feel you’re stuck in and we won’t let you come back!

 

Is there an ATM on site?

Yes there is AND it gives out £5 notes too… but it’s only a small one, so you are best getting cash on the way to the event. There’s several ATM’s within a 5 minute radius of the building.

 

Can I pay by card?

Some of the traders may be able to pay by card these days, but it’s not guaranteed and it depends on mobile signals etc. You’re always best bringing cash. Tickets are CASH ONLY when buying on the door also.

 

Which entrance do I come in at?

The only entrance open for entry in the building is the top entrance by Manchester Road. This is where buses drop people and where the taxi’s can pull in safely too.

 

Can I bring my pet goldfish (and other animals)?

Ultimately this is a college building, animals are not allowed in with the exception of guide dogs and those involved in the live reptile show.
