Monopoly Events - Reviews

Comic Con Liverpool

Absolutely amazing comic was better than the past two years with MCM. I really hope that it becomes an annual event. The guests, props and set up was incredible. There was even something for the kids to do as well which I thought was great. Well done Monopoly Events. - Steven McVeigh 

Superbly organised event given the time you had to organise it. Some very good sellers with some great things to buy although some were overpriced. Arcade area was a fantastic idea and great for filling in time between activities/talks etc. Guests were amazing as were the many professional cosplayers. The q&a sessions were brilliantly organised & fun. The enthusiasm & energy of the person on the stage (Laura I think!) was fantastic & kept the audience interested. - Paul Smith

To put something like this together with limited time after the cancellation by MCM. I'm very impressed. There was a good mix of things to do and as far as indie conventions go in the UK, this is one of the bigger and better ones - Rhys Jones

We loved every minute of it my kids had the best day of their lives - Joanne Richardson

Me and my son had a great time. Was really cool to meet Lou Ferrigno. Loved the stalls, ended up spending a small fortune on mystery boxes and other collectables haha! Will be back next year for sure! Thank you - Kieran Carson

I really enjoyed it. Staff were very friendly and polite. Best con I’ve been to. Will definitely go again! A big thank you to the person who answered my queries through Facebook messenger and a big thank you to the staff member who was with Manu Bennett who saw that I was struggling with shyness and mentioned to him that I wanted to say hello. Really appreciated that - Debra Fearn

I have been to FLTLSF since it started, just been to my first northwest comic-con and must say I feel let down! You guys set the bar way too high! - Joe Bennett

You bring me stars that I have only dreamed of meeting and more. Hell I met face from the a-team & more. This time I'm meeting loads more. You guys are the best! - Mary Smith

I love that the organiser is a fan himself. He asks the people what they want and goes all out to deliver the best experience possible... and he delivers! - Harry Jackson

A brilliant family day out - absolutely awesome! We've supported this event from the start and it gets better and better! - Mo Patel

Great Northern Ska Festival

Easy entry, great line up, nice to move around between stages and stalls with staff and stall holders all sharing the fun, relaxed atmosphere. Looking forward to 'The Return of the Ska Fest!' - Zoe James

We attended last years event, we travelled from Dublin for it and it was brilliant such a great line up. Highlights of the day Meeting The Skafather and The Dualers put on a brilliant show. Looking forward to another great day. - Jason Williams

Fantastic day and night. Brilliant atmosphere and drinks were reasonably priced. Met some lovely die hard ska fans. We'll be back next year. - Kate Crabtree

Absolutely amazing...will be back next year. Bad manners were fantastic and UB40. Fantastic event. I danced all day and night. Thank you for all involved - Tracey Brown Deakin

Top bands. great atmosphere. reasonably priced food and drink. If its on next year i'll be there 100% - Lynn Wray

To the organisers of this event, take a massive bow. From entering to leaving in the early hours both my wife and I had a ball.
The entertainment from all acts was tremendous. UB40 were special, this was our 5th time of seeing them, but by far the best. The security we're polite, unlike other venues we have been to.Plenty of food and drink of all types. The atmosphere was unbelievable, everyone so friendly. Thank you again, can't wait for your next event. - Jim Buckley

Amazing . Couldn't have wished for a better night. Organisers friendly and helpful . Will be there next year. - Zoe Wright

Macclesfield Festival

Mint!!! Loved every minute of it, so many things to do, not my choice of music and and i still loved it. The ambiance was chilled fun and i felt safe which is the main factor for me at a festival. Food was great so many choices, im pescatairian struggled finding fish but got a lovely veggie option instead. Thank you sooo much cant wait till next year - Weave Blow

We had a wonderful day out. Fantastic seeing great bands from my youth and the variety of entertainment was great. Good variety of food stalls too, my egg allergic child had no problems. - Karla Pemberton  

I can honestly say it was THE best event I have ever attended with my children. It was extremely well organised, so much thought gone into every detail. The layout was spot on. -Maxine Harmon 

Absolutely fantastic family fun, brilliant for all ages - we ranged from 4 unto 37 and we all absolutely loved it !! Can't wait until next year already :-) - Matt O'Brien

Didn't know what to expect from macc fest at all before i went, first year going. And 100% will be there for 2019 macc fest! If you've never been, seriously you need to. I thought it would be over crowded and difficult to keep track of little ones. Its really not!!! It's all perfectly spaced out, with soooo much to do. My girls and my friends girls had the best day ever they said. The only moan mine had was that it was only on once a year lol. Shows for kids were very well organised, great interaction with the audience and got the children involved. We loved the princesses show, Mr Bloom and magician. Gutted we missed the marvel heroes. Next year I'll be better prepped and ready to stay till later on for sure. Any doubters on if it's worth it. It is!!!! 100%. Loved it. Thanks macc fest!!! - Caz Jones

TimeQuake Steampunk Festival

A truly amazing event - really loved the edgy, post-apocalyptic side of it. There was definitely something for everyone. Thank you for an epic weekend! - Hannah Spring 

First time at a Steam Punk event. Amazing outfits and suitably dark for my tastes. Good to meet Peter Purvis, Rosie Jane and Simon Fisher-Becker who were lovely. Would be interested to see how much further you could take the exhibition. -  Peter Rowe-Blackman 

Awe inspiring concept and event with meticulous attention to detail. Amazing outfits and people too, will definitely go again! - Kathryn Williams 

The only thing wrong was that we ran out of time to see every thing. Had a fantastic day can't praise the timequake team and the bowlers centre for putting on a fabulous experience
Looking forward to next year's show already - Terry Stevens Lewing

Had a grand day out here, such a diverse and creative bunch of people people and products. I think it was brilliant event and hope that it continues to grow. - Neil Walker

Had a fabulous day at TimeQuake on Saturday. Already hoping for another one! - Debs McGowen

A groundbreaking event, introducing new genres and fusions into UK steampunk. Next time we will wrap up a bit warmer and will already know that it’s a bit further from the hotel than we expected (we didn’t do enough homework before we went - it’s pretty obvious on the map in retrospect). It was good being under a single roof and the static displays were great. The different zones worked well. I was amazed by some of the traders’ stands; they were brilliantly themed and showed off the stock so well (subject to lighting levels).W e loved the Cantina and the ambience in there on Friday night was spot-on. The Cataclysm Ball was good too. I could see the music went down well with loads of folk on their feet, ourselves included (although we baled out before the end through sheer exhaustion). We would definitely love to come again and if it misses the Easter w/e with potential family commitments that would suit us well - but you can’t please everyone all the time and we understand that. We feel very privileged to have been at TQ1, an event quite distinct from Asylum but which will surely grow year on year in the same way. - Nimrod Lancaster
