EM-Con at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham on 1 & 2 May 2021

EM-Con returns with a show that’s set to be out of this world. There’ll be the usual mix of celebrity guests, cos-players, attractions, dealers and film & TV props coming together for the most exciting show in the galaxy.

Among the guests for this year’s show are Jay and Silent Bob star Jason Mewes who has appeared in various films such as Dogma and Chasing Amy, Games of Thrones and Skins star Hannah Murray and LaMonica Garrett from TV’s Arrow, Supergirl and The Flash. They’ll be on hand to sign autographs, meet fans and join them in photoshoots and will be appearing alongside a number of other guests from the entertainment world. This year also welcomes the return of one of the most popular EM-Con attractions - the Back to the Future DeLorean, which on display all weekend.

Since the first event in 2014, EM-Con has grown to become a firm fixture in the Nottingham calendar and proved so popular in its first year only the Motorpoint Arena could meet the demand for tickets. With more attendees coming every year, EM-Con is the perfect day out with friends and family, and has been so popular with some fans they even chose to get married at the show in full cosplay!
