North Lincs TV & Film Comic Con presents Scunthorpe Comic Con 3
Comic Con returned to the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe for its third year.The event was headlined by two guest signers, Sophie Aldred (Ace in Dr Who) and Alan Harris (Bossk in Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back), as well as there being displays including the Bat Signal, a replica car from the Fast and the Furious series and more.
There were a large number of stalls selling all types of merchandise including clothing, figures, artwork, comic books, signed photos as well as a large assortment of other entertainment related merchandise.
Despite the heat, many people turned up in fantastic cosplay costumes, which can’t have been comfortable in the boiling heat.
There were a few professional cosplay groups such as the Superheroes and Sentinel Squad, who regularly attend local events, including previous Scunthorpe conventions. They give up their weekends to attend conventions and other events, entertaining the fans, all whilst raising money for charity.
Many of the attendees, including store holders, came dressed as some of their favourite characters from film, TV and comics, such as Red Dwarf, Star Wars, The Walking Dead, The X Files and the Marvel and DC Superhero movies.
Some of the cosplay highlights was Sophie Aldred meeting someone cosplaying as her character Ace, as well as a couple of cosplayers paying tribute to the late Adam West by dressing as Batman and Robin from the 1960s TV show.
There was a cosplay competition for under 13s and 13 and over, with the under 13s competition being won by a young girl dressed as Disney’s Moana and the over 13s competiton won by a guy dressed as a character from the Skyrim video game.
I also had the pleasure of meeting Youtuber Michael Lunatic, who was vlogging the event for his youtube channel, which mostly features videos of him attending various conventions.
I had a great time catching up with many of the friends I have met attending cons, plus made many more, coming away with some great memories and look forward to the return of Scunthorpe Comic Con next year.
Scunthorpe Comic Con 4 takes place at the Baths Hall, Scunthorpe on Sunday 17th June 2018.

If you follow local town centre nightclub storm on social media you will have seen their latest announcement of closure. Although sad news for STORM fans… Don’t worry too much as the venue is set to open under a new management company in May. It might mean a new name but it is uncertain what else will change.
Comment from new management: Greetings from all of us at Stealth bars & clubs ltd
There has been a lot of talk over the past week about the new venue and what we intend to bring to scunthorpe. We don’t want to spoil the surprise however we can confirm that the rumour of the club being called Stealth is false. Tho our company name may be Stealth we actually don’t own any bars with that name 🤔 We can confirm however that this image is part of the new logo!
Anyone who can guess the venues name can have a free vip booth package on us for the launch night (T&C’s apply)
STORM FACEBOOK MSG:
We would just like to say thank you to everyone who enjoyed and supported storm over the past few years but It is with the heaviest hearts that we must say that storm is now closed indefinitely. As we set our sights on to bigger and brighter plans we have handed over the venue to Stealth bars & clubs who promise to bring something scunthorpe has never seen before!
All events planned for storm have been handed over to the new company and will continue under the new venue which aims to open in may.
The new facebook profile pic for STORM has now been changed to the image below.
