5 Upcoming Conventions in London to Attend

London is the hub of entertainment in the UK. It plays hosts to several international sporting events and conventions that attract visitors from all parts of the globe. Aside from being the centre of culture and food, London events are a major driving force behind tourism in the city. These are five of the most talked-about upcoming events in London.


London Film and Comic-Con

This is one of the most exciting events, particularly for film lovers. It sees all the stars from all of your favourite movies, TV shows, and series coming together in one spot. If you have always wanted to meet your idolized tv personality from shows like The Vampire Diaries, then you will want to make sure that you book your slot at this convention. The convention takes place over three days so you might need to book a hotel stay if you are coming from outside of London. Paddington Court Executive Rooms are a great option and can be shared with a friend as they have a choice of a double bed or twin beds. At the meeting you will get to attend talks, engage in a Q&A session and get an autograph from the stars. 

Dates: 29 February 2020 – 1 March 2020

Venue: Olympia London, Hammersmith Road


Spirit Of Christmas

This experience goes beyond more than just a convention. The Spirit of Christmas offers you the chance to shop for some out of this world Christmas decorations, gifts and other items. It is a holiday shopping experience like no other. The convention has a market vibe to it where vendors are carefully selected from a panel of people, and they showcase some of their best hand-crafted items. If you are still not too sure what to get your loved one this Christmas then, head over to Spirit of Christmas.
