True Believers Comic Festival is coming to Gloucester for a one day summer special event filled with comics, artists, creators and more.

The True Believers Comic Festival: Summer Variant Edition will be held at Blackfriars Priory in Gloucester City Centre on Sunday 20th August 2017 between 11am and 4pm and, like the main TBCF event, will boast a great selection of tables featuring Small Press Comics, original art, back issue comics, merchandise and much more, all in the stunning and unique setting of a medieval priory.

The event will also be raising money for the Sue Ryder Lechampton Court Hospice, with £1 from each ticket sold being donated to them. 

Full details on what will be going on on the day (including Cosplay & Workshops) will be announced soon.
