The headline really says it all. On 7th and 8th December 2019 Wales Comic Con, a convention which for the past 11 years has quite logically been held in Wales, is moving to Telford. Which is in England. The BBC have all the inside info, and the genuine reasons for this move.

Wales Comic Con is moving from Wrexham to Telford in England.

The bi-annual event was held for the 11th year in April at Wrexham’s Glyndwr University.

Organisers announced the December event would take place “just over the border” and will be named Wales Comic Con: Telford Takeover.

April’s event attracted big names including Rupert Grint, David Tennant and Kiefer Sutherland.

Fans of the event expressed their disappointment on Twitter, describing it as a “huge loss” to Wrexham, while Plaid Cymru’s Carrie Harper called the move “a disgrace”.

Telford, in Shropshire, is roughly 34 miles (55.1 km) from Wrexham, where parking issues blighted last month’s event.

Wrexham County Borough Council said it was “very disappointed” by the decision to move it.

And here’s how Wales Comic Con announced it on their official Twitter feed.
