If you are from the UK and consider yourself a Nerd/Geek you will be familiar with MCM. they organise plenty of conventions across the United Kingdom, some are obviously better than others. Which is why that I am sad to report that is you live in The Midlands, Liverpool or Northern Ireland MCM will no longer be bringing conventions there. In a statement they had this to say:
To Our MCM Fans
Our goal at MCM is to provide the ultimate pop culture experiences for our fans throughout the U.K. In order to deliver bigger and better events, brands, guests and entertainment for our fans we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the MCM Comic Cons in Telford (Midlands), Liverpool and Northern Ireland. We know that we have lots of incredibly passionate and dedicated fans in those regions and we want to sincerely thank them for all of the energy and support they have given to us and our shows over the years. Moving forward our focus will be on significantly growing and expanding the shows in Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and London. As these shows evolve into larger, more exciting pop culture experiences we hope that all our fans throughout the UK will continue to support us and join us at all of our shows in 2018.
Honestly I am a little hurt myself, after all I am from Belfast, but when it comes down to it they probably want to focus on the quality of their bigger conventions instead of creating a sub power product, I am sure this is something that no one wanted but I guess shit happens.
