2020 MCM Conventions Cancelled
posted on by Andrew Osmond
The web page of the MCM conventions has posted the following statement, confirming the cancellations of 2020's events in Birmingham in June, London in July, Manchester in August and Glasgow in September.
"It is with a heavy heart that we today announce the cancellation of MCM Birmingham Comic Con June, MCM London Comic Con July, MCM Manchester Comic Con August, and MCM Scotland Comic Con September following the escalation of COVID-19 in the UK, Europe, and globally.
"Our aim since the beginning has always been to put on the best events for you as possible, a space for you to gather together, be yourselves, and make memories with those who matter to you most. Unfortunately, after extensive discussions with all the relevant public health, local and national authorities we have taken the difficult decision not to go ahead with the events at this time.
"Refunds for ticket holders, pre-paid photo and autographs, exhibitors, retailers and artists will all be automatically processed, with no further action needed on your part. We aim to have all refunds processed before the end of June and we appreciate your continued patience and understanding.
"Our hearts go out to everyone impacted by the COVID-19 virus, and to all of you, who look forward to our events year on year as a place of acceptance and safety. Rest assured, we are working hard to make sure that when safe to do so, we will return as a physical event, but until then we have plans to bring you all your comic con needs to the safety of your own homes, so stay tuned over the next few months!"
