Bowlers Exhibition centre is best known for its big raves like Baseline festival, so I was shocked when I realised the concert would be taking place at this venue. However, the layout of the concert worked really well. In one room they had the VIP section where there was an on-going DJ, private bar and tables and chairs. In the main event area there were two bars and chairs at each side of the stage. - Viva

As well as films, there are guests from TV and music – Stars from Stranger Things will be there, along with Ray Parker Jnr, writer and performer of the Ghostbusters theme song. - 80s Nostalgia

Comic Con Scotland took place this weekend just passed and I was lucky enough to receive a press pass so I could cover the event for Gamers. Dubbed For the Love of 80s, this is the first convention on Scottish soil for Monopoly Events, the convention organisers and as you can understand by the shows title, it was dedicated to all things 1980s!
There will be robots in disguise, travellers in Time And Relative Dimension In Space, vehicles and ships from a long time ago and characters from a galaxy far far away. This weekend, March 10 and 11, all of this and more will be taking over Liverpool as Comic Con comes to the Exhibition Centre Liverpool. - Liverpool Echo
“Whoa!” That was genuinely what I said when I saw the line-up of guests at Comic Con Scotland. I go to quite a few Comic Cons every year and the main draw for me are the guests. I do love buying geeky things from the stalls, and I do go to talks to listen to interviews, but the main appeal for me is to meet 80s guests. - 80s Nostalgia.com
We’re sitting in a Manchester bar, the evening before Trejo is due to appear at For the Love of Horror, a two-day film convention. Nearby sits Tyler Mane, who plays Michael Myers in the latest Halloween films, although the masked murderer looks slightly less terrifying when eating a salmon and cucumber sandwich. - The Guardian
