Comic-Con Extravaganza Returns to Bradford!

Unleashed Events brings the second incarnation of Bradford’s geeky family-friendly fun day to Valley Parade football stadium on 8th October in a return of their West Yorkshire comic convention all ages will enjoy.

Christopher Nolan from Star Wars Rogue One (as well as many popular TV programmes such as Stan Lee’s Lucky Man, and Humans) will be in attendance as a special guest.

Flying in all the way from the United States is Stephen Vining, best known for playing a multitude of different walkers in The Walking Dead, as well as having had parts in many big screen films such as Guardians of the Galaxy, The Hunger Games, and more!

Joining Christopher and Stephen is Harry Potter and Star Wars actor Paul Warren, who is best known for his fantastic heavy prosthetic and creature roles in blockbuster movies.

All three actors will be chatting to their fans about their cinematic careers, selling and signing autographs, and posing for selfies.

YouTube / Twitch sensation the Yorkshire Yank will also be debuting as a guest at Bradford Unleashed, talking to fans old and new, and offering advice on how to become a YouTuber.

If you like displays you’ll be thrilled by the spectacular Star Wars scene at Bradford Unleashed, and if it’s interactive attractions you’re looking for you will not be disappointed by the great mix of retro and modern gaming available to play.

A host of amazing characters will delight convention-goers as they meet superheroes, Transformers Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, and even a huge walking dinosaur! Have your photo taken alongside your big-screen idols and amaze your friends!

If cosplay is your thing, then you have the opportunity to enter the costume competitions. There are great prizes to be won and you’ll have a chance to show off your fantastic outfits.

A vast number of geeky trader tables with their enormous range of merchandise will keep even the most ardent shopper happy, and there’ll be plenty of opportunity to purchase a souvenir of your day out.

Food and drink will be available all day, so there’s no need to bring your own sandwiches!
