The very first Sci Fi And Comic Con event was held at Whitby on the 28th Nov 2015. The event was an amazing success and attended by a very large number of enthusiasts and other interested parties.
The even which took place at the spa pavilion was a fund raiser for early cancer detection. People travelled from across the country to attend and characters at the event included those from a multitude of Sci fi and comic movies like Star Wars, Planet of The Apes, Dr Who and many many others.
Many of the members of our Real Whitby Facebook Group attended the event. these are just a selection of their comments about the day.
- Louise Parker – I Enjoyed this Whitby one better than the one at Scarborough , all the stalls where good , loved the hulk .
- Rachel Griffiths – It was really impressive how many people attended. Loved the cosplay efforts – especially the Chaos Space Marine. Picked up some pixel geeky hair grips. Didn’t go downstairs because I hate zombies! Looking forward to next year when hopefully even more stallholders will be attracted.
- Enimod Corcoran – We loved it ( except for the hulk scaring my boys) it was such a lovely atmosphere. I do hope it is on again next year.
- Jennifer Stephenson – Choas space marine was amazing def my fave. This was our 2nd comic con this year. The zombie run was so much fun and I actually screamed lol. Brill day can’t wait for next year’s. Well done to all involved.
- Claire Torretto – I was Miss Riddler with baby joker and Chris was Daryl Dixon who took people through the zombie experience… It was amazing fun a good day out had by all I’m sure
