MCM London Comic Con: the lowdown

The 2016 MCM London Comic Con will take place at London's ExCeL exhibition centre at the Royal Victoria Dock from October 28-30.

Visitors will be treated to a smorgasbord of pop cultural treats, ranging from appearances by stars of TV and film (including Doctor Who's Peter Davison and Star Wars' Warwick Davis) - many of who will be doing a stint with fans in the venue's photo booths.

There will also be thousands of stalls offering everything from comic books to action figures.

The memorabilia section will feature exhibits of props from some of your favourite movies, with Star Wars cosplayers from the 501st UK Garrison in attendance.

The MCM Signing Arena is where you'll be able to get autographs from the stars of Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and the (original) Star Wars series.

Signatures start at just ?�15. It's a great way to meet your heroes and walk away with a memento as well.  

Meanwhile, gamers will be enraptured at the MCM eSports arena, which will feature a huge array of competitions and stands. It will be showing the League of Legends World Championship direct from Los Angeles between 12am-3am on Saturday.

Are you arriving in your own costume? Then you'll want to check the MCM fringe festival page ahead of time.

It seems like every conceivable fandom (from the Simpsons to Togainu no Chi) is meeting outside to take photos and meet other enthusiasts.

Steampunks will have their own dedicated section, where they can pick up new top hats and goggles and take seminars in creating their own anachronistic creations.

If that's not enough, all your favourite Youtubers, including Tomska and Gamehog Games, will be meeting fans at the Vidfest stage.

While weekend tickets are now sold out, you can still pick up individual tickets for each of the days.

General entry costs ?�15, while priority will set you back ?�25.

The nearest stops are Prince Regent and Custom House on the DLR.
