What is Fanatic Expo?

Fanatic Expo is a brand new convention that celebrates everything great about pop culture. At Fanatic, you’ll be able to meet comic book artists, film and TV stars, sports personalities and more – you can even ask them a few hard-hitting questions at our free Q&A sessions. There’s also a huge variety of stalls selling plenty of cool stuff, exclusive photo ops, gaming activities and loads of over stuff going on over the course of the event.

How will I receive my tickets?

All our tickets are distributed as e-tickets and you should have received them via email shortly after your purchase. If you did not receive the email with your tickets or you can no longer access them, please contact TicketWeb via their website or give them a call on 0333 321 9990.

Do I need to print my e-tickets?

You do not need to print your e-ticket – we are also able to scan barcodes from a phone or tablet. We recommend that you download your tickets and store them on your device’s memory or that you take a screenshot of the barcode rather than relying on the internet at the venue to access your tickets.

Can I buy tickets on the day?

Tickets can be bought on the door, but priority will be given to those who already have already purchased tickets and there may be a queue. To guarantee entry, we recommend buying your tickets in advance.

Will I need to buy a ticket for my child?

Children under 5 do not need a ticket. If your child is aged 5-13, you can buy them a reduced price children’s ticket, provided they are accompanied by a paying adult. There is a maximum of two children per adult.

What time does the event open and close?

The event opens at 10am for early bird entry on both Saturday and Sunday. General entry on both days is from 11am. The event closes at 6pm on Saturday and 4pm on Sunday.

Is there somewhere I can put my bags at the venue?

There is a cloakroom available on site near the main entrance. There will be a small charge for this service.

Are there any cash machines on site?

Unfortunately there are no cash machines in the venue itself. However, there are many in the town of Harrogate, including one just outside the venue. Nearby cash machines will be marked on the site map when it becomes available.

Is there help available for visitors with disabilities?

Harrogate International Centre is fully accessable to wheelchair users and those with mobility issues. We also offer a priority access scheme for visitors with disabilities who may find queuing difficult – you can find out more and register for this scheme here.

I’m attending as a carer for someone with disabilities. Do I need a ticket?
