Last year the incredible Heroes & Villains Fan Fest conquered London for the very first time. As U.K. Correspondent for Dark Knight News, and our sister site DC Comics News, I had the honor and privilege of attending.
Over the weekend of May 26th and 27th 2018 this incredible family event will be returning to London’s famed Olympia, and we will be there to cover everything on both dates.
Here is the official press release:
Nashville, Tenn. – Heroes & Villains Fan Fest (HVFF), an event that is revolutionizing the fan experience and convention landscape, will be held at the Olympia London, May 26-27, in London.
Fan access to celebrity guests will be the primary focus of this event, which includes two days of immersive experiences and lasting memories.
Heroes & Villains Fan Fest U.K. II – The Sequel
The list of fan favorites attending this year is nothing short of stellar!
Heroes & Villains Fan Fest is the brainchild of actor Stephen Amell and James Frazier, creator of the zombie and horror event Walker Stalker Con — has become an incredibly popular convention, offering something for everyone — from the diehard fan… to families… to those with a growing interest in the genre. More than 25 of the most popular actors from shows and films such as Arrow, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow, Supergirl, The Flash, Gotham, and more will speak to the audience, meet with fans, pose for photos and sign autographs (see full list).
Attendees can also participate in a range of engaging and unique activities, including:
● Panel sessions led by stars from some of television’s most popular shows.
● Interactive “hero-style” games on the convention floor – fun for the ENTIRE family!
● Cosplayers roam the event floor, making for memorable interactive experiences.
● Vendors who deal in the comic and entertainment worlds – among many other genres and industries.
● Reality TV star and celebrity tattoo artist, Chris 51 (A&E’s Epic Ink), will be offering his acclaimed artistic talents to attendees on the con floor.
There are even a number of opportunities to become a volunteer at the event, which can be found on the Heroes & Villains website.
