Gamers, geeks and sci-fi fans rejoice as Cannock Shopping Centre is transformed for a FREE event to delight superhero (and supervillain) fans alike!

Visitors at Cannock Shopping Centre on February 1st from 9am -5pm can get their geek on for a day filled with cosplayers, nerdy merchandise and special guests. Organised by Geekmania West Midlands, the event is totally FREE and open to all comic book fans; young, old and everything in between!

Visitors can have a ‘shocking’ time having their photo taken on the ‘Shocker Asylum Chair’ or grab selfies with a variety of superhero and supervillain cosplayers. Visitors are encouraged to attend in their best cosplay outfits too for some extra fun in the town centre! The event will feature special guest Simon Fisher-Becker, who players Dorium Maldovar from Doctor Who – we’re not sure if he will turn up blue though!

Tom Fellows, Centre Manager for Cannock Shopping Centre commented:

“We are really excited to be welcoming comic book fans from across the West Midlands to the centre – it’s going to be a really exciting day filled with all thinks geeky. We recommend getting here early as it’s going to get busy. We are only hoping that the supervillains won’t cause too much mischief…!”

The centre will also be full of pop up shops and stalls offering geeky-themed merchandise to browse and buy. If you have a loved one in your life who is a fan of everything comic book, pick something up for Valentine’s Day to make the perfect gift!

Mark Longman of GEEKS Events also commented;

“We at GEEKS Events are excited to be in Cannock for the very first time, where we will be bringing plenty of geeky fun for everyone to enjoy with some great traders joining us with all manner of Movie, Comic, Gaming & TV related merchandise. With special guest Simon Fisher-Becker and lots of photo opportunities it’s an event not to miss!”
