Well pleased. Such a well run convention from beginning to end, I wish you every success for the future.

Your commitment to this event and to the mad horror fans like myself who attended has been unlike anything I’ve seen before. You’re all wonderful!

Wow !! Brilliant inaugural UK Horror Con at an ideal venue !! Top guests ( Tom Savini, Gunnar Hansen, Ken Foree, Bill Moseley,Caroline Munro & Martine Beswick). How did you pull that off ? Really friendly,chatty and genuine people. Cosplay was great fun, with horror villains (or maybe heroes) a plenty. Loved it !

Had an awesome, awesome weekend!! Felt like a kid at Xmas. Spreading the word so could be having more Geordies head down next year. Please, please be on!! I didn’t want to come home. Though might have to actually run up to all the people dressed up next year and tell them how awesome they look!!

I didn’t wanna leave either!! Sooooo much fun!

What an awesome guy Bill (Moseley) is. Was great hearing his stories at the Q & A. Here’s hoping we have another HorrorCon UK & that the guests are just as good as this year!!

Bill (Moseley) was such a sound bloke. Talked to my son for ages after the Q & A, because he was too shy to ask his question in front of an audience. Back home after what can only be described as an amazingly fantastic weekend at Horrorcon! So many awesome and friendly traders and stalls and the atmosphere was superb. Was great to meet so many FB friends and chat with Tom Savini. Thanks again and see you all for the next one.

You’ve gotta do it again next year!! It was amazing and we need more.

I’ll deffo be back next year if you can do it again, thanks for al the hard work you all did to make such an amazing day at an amazing venue.

Again next year PLEEEEEZ! Great event in a fantastic venue amongst a load of lovely, warm, friendly & charming people! Very sincere thanks to all who had a hand in organising it all. Your efforts were greatly appreciated! First Class!

Had such an awesome weekend thanks soooooo much!! Cannot wait until next one. Same time next year please!! Thanks to everyone involved for an amazing weekend xxx

A really great event. Here’s to 2016.

Best weekend ever. Please please do it again next year.

It was a blast:-)

Thank you for a fab weekend. Let’s do it Again.

I will definitley be back next year if u guys can make it!!! Absolutely loved it!!!!

PLEASE make this a regular event! It was FAB!!!!!!!!

Talking to our customers over the weekend the overwhelming vibe was how amazing a weekend it was, it would be a tragedy if this didn’t return next year xx

Definitely please come back next year. Loved the zombie lectures and Tom Savini – what a guest.

Thank you HorrorCon, what an amazing weekend. Had the most awesome time. Come back next year!

As guest line up goes, you’d be hard put not to please any genre of horror fans! The main hall itself was huge with lots to do. I found the venue fascinating if not easy to get lost in. All in all, it was a great experience and one I’d love to attend again in the future!

One of the best days I’ve had at a con, really hope you can return next year.

Oh yeah and next time I’m dressing up, this horror con was my first and it definitely won’t be my last.

We had a great time and had great feedback about our comic and everyone we met was top quality, will defo be back again and again, great show.

Please come back next year it was the best con I’ve been to just because it was all horror and the guests were great!

PLEASE PLEASE do it again next year! I only found out about this years by chance, but if you do another one I’ll paste the poster all over the internet!

Great venue, great guests and great crowd, and the cosplayers were amazing.

Please come back again next year, brilliant venue everyone was so friendly and helpful would definitely come back next year.

YES!! It was amazing! Bring on 2016 :-D

Absolutely loved it, hopefully it can only get bigger and better! :) see you in 2016!

Amazing had such a good time will defo see you in 2016.

Travelled up from the Midlands, well worth it, lots to do and see. Brilliant celebrity guests and sellers. Very well organised and set out, make 2016 happen!

We came up from Norfolk and had the best time ever!! Please, please come back next year! Have loads of people wanting to come with us next time!!

We travelled a couple of hours to get there. Thought it was a great event. Only attended for a day. Do it again and we will do the full weekend!

Yes, you must do it again next year please!!!!!

It was the first time for me and my sis and we both loved it. Great people, guests and hosts, can’t wait ’til next time!

We couldnt be there this year but have heard excellent reports from everyone who was there! Please do this in 2016!

Best time!!! So exciting and full of amazing people and special guests. PLEASE COME BACK NEXT YEARRRRR!

I was dragged there by my horror mad son and I have to say a big well done, cos even I enjoyed it!

Fantastic con! Had a great time, met some amazing people, can’t wait until next year!

Great guests!! Hopefully you’ll be back next year and if you do, we’ll be there again! More time for Q & As next year!

It was off the hook. Just fantastic.

I had a great time on Saturday. Thanks to everyone involved in organising and running the event. I was particularly impressed by the talks hall. Tiered seating is such a luxury at conventions – it happens so rarely, yet it makes the world of difference to attendees. If you do it all again next year, please stick with this set up. It’s really appreciated. Felt very classy. Nice venue all round, I thought.

You’d better do another horrorcon next year, or so help me!!!

We had an awesome time! Had my 9 month old with us and he loved all the random monsters he met and we got to meet some of our horror heroes and get their autographs. Hoping its even bigger next year, we came all the way from London & would happily do it again.

Best day ever! Please please please plan another!

Had a fantastic time, better be back next year.

In a word, AWESOME!!!!! Ken Foree = Legend.

Send me bacckkk…

Well,after 30 years of doing shows (for me) (longer for the rest of the guys ((old bastards)) that was the best show environment ever. the nicest people go to horrorcons, really ,it made me write this. plus those OTHER ppl ,tom savini,gunnar hansen,ken foree,bill moseley AND all the rest made it very special.

Wow, just got back from a great 2 day event. Horror Con UK was just superb. I met so many nice people and got to have some great chats about all things horror. I was so chuffed every time someone bought a book.
