the NOR-CON reviews
From Lennie Roberts via Facebook August 2019
Love this event so much. Been going since it started and you’ll find myself and some fellow painters body-painting cosplay near the stage. The NORCON team do an incredible job with this event. Proud to be associated with it

one of the best ones in England! Maybe go both days???

I can’t wait for this. I’ve been for the last 3 years and loved it every time. Both my daughter and myself will be cosplaying Rimmer

This is a comic con event for TV and film fans. I was unaware of this until 2 years ago. But on my first visit loved it. It is reputed to be in the top 10 cons in the UK. And thus has some stiff competition. I have to say I went to another Comic Con last year and was hugely disappointed. We are spoilt with this one on our doorstep and lots to see and do for all, but also a great family event.

Simply outstanding show, very family friendly and great atmosphere. We attend hundreds of shows each year with our film vehicles and Robots and this is definitely in the top ten. Nice to see such clear organisations and what a stunning location.

NORCON is my favourite convention that I have been too by far! It may be smaller than the London and Birmingham ones but makes up for it by being far more friendly and welcoming, cannot wait to return again this year.

Such a great annual event. My eldest daughter loves dressing up for it & the rest of the family, we just love seeing all the outfits & effort gone into the day.

Me and my girls had a great time, it was our first event.

My first Norcon and it was amazing! Went for both days in cosplay and entered the competition on the second day, I was a bit worried I’d stick out since I was dressed in traditional Japanese gear, but on the day I was totally relaxed (and even got asked for a photo a few times ￼<3) Really friendly staff and guests, loved it. Roll on next year, can't wait to turn up in cosplay again!! Only thing I could possibly suggest is more seating, and maybe a small cosplay repair stall (for those unexpected costume mishaps)
From Annette Needham via Facebook on the 12th October 2017
Second year I’ve been to it at this venue and I still love it. Needs more seating, not just in the talks area, and maybe some kind of cover over the picnic tables outside where the food stalls are, got caught in the rain when trying to eat and there is no shelter from it at all. Otherwise excellent, keep up the good work.

My first comic conversation and it did not disappoint!! I was rather nervous about going in costume but there were so many other cosplayers and everyone was so friendly. Highlight of the day for me was meeting Percy Weasley!! Great day out, great stalls, great merch, great people!! Thanks Norcon 7.
