Liverpool Comic Con 2020 – when is it?
The 2020 edition of Liverpool Comic Con takes place between Friday 6th and Sunday 8th March. That gives you three full days for guest meet and greets, photographs with your favourite props, and as much memorabilia as you can buy!
Doors open at 11:00 each day – unless you purchase an Early Entry Pass – and close at 18:00.

The event is being held at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool. Located on the King’s Dock, it sits next to its sister venues ACC Liverpool and the M&S Bank Arena.
Liverpool Comic Con 2020 – how much does it cost?
There are various ticket options for you to choose from. You can buy a Weekend Diamond Entry Pass, which gets you entry to the venue, and lets you queue jump for photo opportunities and meet and greets. There are also daily Diamond Entry Passes for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday if you’re thinking about attending one day instead of all three.
Weekend Q&A Panel Front Row tickets are available to buy as well, but you can only purchase these with a Weekend Entry Pass. You can also buy Early Entry Weekend Passes, which let you into the event at 9am instead of the normal opening time of 11am. Like the Diamond Passes, you can also buy Early Entry Passes for each day too.
Finally, there’s the option of Standard Entry Daily Passes if you’re only planning to attend for a few hours, or After Party tickets if you want to potentially mingle with special guests at Camp & Furnace Liverpool.
