 geekedfest newport

Newport in South Wales is set to play host to a new film and comic convention this summer.

GeekedFest, which will be hosted at the Newport Leisure Centre on August 8 and 9, is the first of what organisers hope will become an annual event. GeekedFest Ltd was founded by Chris Muscat and Shane Richard Jordan who are from Newport and are passionate about their city.

They want to provide a comic convention that is accessible to families and newcomers and will offer a drooling experience for the hardcore nerds, gamers, geeks of all ages, creeds and guilds.

The event will have a roster full of special guests, including Game of Thrones actors, current and former WWE wrestling stars and authors of classics such as the Return of the Jedi and the Goonies. As well as autographs and picture opportunities there will also be exhibitions showcasing Dr Who props, Star Wars memorabilia and film characters.

GeekedFest will be packed full with market stalls and exhibitors selling everything from costume wear, comics, figurines, unique artwork, retro games, autographs, film memorabilia, and rare confectionery. There will be a dedicated Cosplay area and gaming room with competitions and shows throughout both days.

Co-founder of Geekedfest Chris Muscat said “Geekedfest started with a passion for films and comics and a desire to provide Newport, our city, with something everyone can enjoy. The city is undergoing a major redevelopment and as part of that we wanted to offer an annual event Newport can be proud of.”

“Our aim is to offer our guests an experience they will enjoy and at the same time support our local businesses and charities. We are supporting the Follow Your Dreams, St Davids Foundation Hospice Care and Fibroduck charities to raise awareness and funds for their great causes, with exhibitions dedicated to them on both days.”
