Sadly due to the COVID-19 Outbreak MCM have taken steps to look after their guests well being and are postponing the event by one month. They had this to say:
We are passionate and dedicated to delivering the best possible experiences for everyone who attends our shows, we know that MCM Comic Con means a great deal to a lot of people, and we care deeply about the MCM community that we love so much. We always want the best for our fans. Having monitored the situation around COVID-19 constantly over these last few weeks, taking on board the feedback from the MCM community and this week’s advice from the UK Government regarding social distancing and avoiding crowds, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone MCM Comic Con London. The show is now scheduled to run from 10-12th July 2020 at the ExCeL, London.
We tried to do everything we could to run the event as planned, at all times following the protocols and advice set by the World Health Organisation (WHO), Public Health England and the relevant local authorities in London and the UK, however postponing is the responsible and right decision. Sadly, we can confirm that Critical Role who were booked for our May event will not be able to join us in July. Please understand we are as disappointed as anyone about this situation and ask for your understanding in these unprecedented conditions, we are doing our utmost to bring Critical Role back to MCM at the earliest possible opportunity.
To all our fans – ticket holders who wish to attend the July event can simply hold onto their tickets which will remain valid for the re-arranged event, no further action is required.
If you’re unable to make the July dates but would still like to attend a London MCM show, we also offer the option of transferring tickets to our London October show. To do this, please contact our Customer Services team at MCMLondonMay@reedexpo.co.uk who will process the transfer. We are also offering an option of full refunds on tickets. Customers who wish to claim a refund are required to contact our Customer Services team at MCMLondonMay@reedexpo.co.uk no later than midnight on 3rd July 2020. We will process your refund as soon as we can. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by the COVID-19 virus in what is an incredibly challenging time. We remain dedicated to creating a positive and safe environment to celebrate comics, cosplay and pop culture and look forward to a fun weekend in London in July.
This is sad news but this is the right thing and I for one applaud MCM for valuing our lives over their finances.
