Thought Bubble 2018 runs 17th – 23rd September!

TBF16 Convention Tickets! by thoughtbubblefestival

Hey gang!

We hope you’ve had a good start to the summer (for our northern hemisphere bubblers), and are ready for some big festival updates coming your way over the next few weeks, including academic talks, competitions, convention exhibitors, and (even more) guests, but first…

Tickets for this year’s Thought Bubble convention will be¬†on sale here¬†from 10am Friday 24th June! Taking place on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th November, at venues on Leeds Dock, the convention tickets include access to three exhibition halls and multiple panel and screening events, and you can find prices and more information below.


This year, we’ve partnered up with the lovely folks at SEE Tickets to handle the sales for us, which will give us improved ticket tracking and make things a lot easier at the convention when gaining access to the venues for customers. We’ve had to implement a small booking fee to cover this, so we’ve brought the prices down from previous years to offset this, and 2016’s tickets, when bought online, will cost:


£26 (+£2.60 booking fee) for a weekend convention pass;

£16 (+£1.60 booking fee) for a single day convention pass.


Tickets for the convention can also be bought on the day from the venue, including those for discounted cosplay entry and Breeze Card discounted entry (only available on the day), but may involve a bit of queuing on the door. Tickets bought on the day will cost:


£29 for a standard weekend convention pass;

£18 for a standard single day convention pass;


£27 for a cosplay / breeze card discounted weekend convention pass;

£16 for a cosplay / breeze card discounted single day convention pass.


As always, under-12s can enter the convention for free (when accompanied by a ticket holding parent or guardian,) and disabled carers enter for free (more information on this can be found on the ticket booking page.)

Thought Bubble remains a not-for-profit organisation, and your support of the festival through convention tickets and exhibitor tables remains invaluable to us, so we’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who attends every year, and if you’re going to be joining us for the first time in 2016 we look forward to welcoming you to Leeds, and will have an updated visitor’s guide going up online soon!
