Retro and modern gamers are expected to beat a path to Walsall next April when the organisers of a popular Comic-Con bring a new gaming and collecting event to the West Midlands town.
Walsall’s first ever ‘Halloween Comic Con’ took place in the Town Hall in Leicester Street on Saturday 31st October this year, and was a popular success by all accounts, hosting celebrity sci-fi guests from TV and films and attracting enthusiastic crowds of fans, collectors and cosplayers. The new gaming event will also be at the same venue, and has just been announced.
Walsall Games Mart, on Saturday 9th April 2016, will not just be about video games, both retro and modern, there will also be Collectable Card Games, war gaming and lots of traders selling related products from favourite franchises.
There will also be toys, models, collectables and gifts on sale as well as a cosplay competition.
Admission is set at £3 each, with age 5’s and under free.
