COMIXOLOGY’S 10TH ANNIVERSARY MID-CON PARTY Thanks to our amazing pals at ComiXology, and to celebrate their 10th anniversary, this year’s mid-con party will be free entry! Again taking place at the awesome Trinity Kitchen, it’s the perfect way to unwind after a hectic day on the con floor. There’ll be a wide range of gourmet and street food vendors to choose from, and we’ll have the drinks and music flowing until late, so help us celebrate another Thought Bubble in style, with special guest DJs spinning tunes until the early hours (and some surprises too!). Space is strictly limited and you’ll need your yellow weekend wristband, exhibitor wristband, or guest pass to gain entry. We expect it will be super busy, so come early. Entry will be on a first-come-first-served basis and there may be queues.. It’s also important to note that this event is strictly over 18s
