In the 5D Podcast this week we were delighted, nay thrilled, nay ecstatic to announce that the first organisation to take up the mantle of sponsoring our podcast are Granite City Comic Con!
The GCCC team will be sponsoring us for a month in the new year. As yet it’s all a bit secretive as to so of the tasty little geeky morsals we’ll be imparting about the 2020 event. However, the one little piece of inside intel I can pass your way is that there are a number of behind-the-scenes plans being put in place at this very moment – so stay tuned!
So if you are not familiar with the north east of Scotland’s prime pop culture event, let me push their info your way…..
The first ever Granite City Comic-Con was held on Saturday 30th May 2015 in Aberdeen. A big thanks to all our guests, all our volunteers, vendors and the hordes of nerds from across the UK (and further afield) who came along and ensured that Granite City Comic-Con will go on to become a staple in the North East culture calendar. In 2015 we raised over £3000 for local charity CLAN Cancer Support.
Our 2016 Event proved to be an outstanding follow up, this year our venue was THE HILTON TREETOPS, and guests included Robert Llewellyn, Star Wars actors Garrick Hagon and Paul Blake, alongside some great comic book talent, including Judge Dredd creator John Wagner.
In 2017 we returned to the Hilton with even bigger and brasher show, hosting voice acting legends Steve Blum and Mary McGlynn, alongside Star Wars favourites Peter Roy, Michael Henbury and Gerald Home; and comic creators John Wagner, Glenn Fabry and Ryan Brown.
In 2018 we moved to the Richard Donald Stand at Pittodrie Stadium for our biggest show ever – featuring the talents of actors Paul McGann and Hattie Hayridge, ILM Visual Effects guru Dan Snape and a wealth of new attractions.
In 2019 we returned the Hilton Treetops on Saturday 24th August – stay tuned for more announcements!
