Thought Bubble 2018 runs 17th – 23rd September!

Thought Bubble 2017 Festival Spotlights: Mid-Con Party by thoughtbubblefestival

We’re just 10 days away from the start of 2017’s Thought Bubble, and our convention’s return to Leeds City Centre, and we’re continuing with our selected highlights from this year’s programme here on the blog – helping you get the most out of the festival week, and beyond!

Taking place from 18th to 24th September at venues across Leeds (and beyond), 2017’s Thought Bubble will be a celebration of all comics has to offer – comprising a huge range of events for fans of all ages, and will include free art & writing based workshops for young people & adults, talks & masterclasses lead by industry professionals, free exhibitions, & our massive two-day comic convention on 23rd and 24th September in the heart of Leeds City Centre!

The full festival programme can be found on this page, with full information on events available by clicking their titles, and a map of venues for this year’s festival can be found here. We’ve also got a digital version of this year’s festival guide up online here, with provisional convention floor plans available here, and free print copies of all of these will be available at our events for attendees.

Don’t forget to check out all the guests and exhibitors who’ll be joining us for this year’s convention, and make sure to get your convention tickets (although more will be available on the door)!

We’ve also updated our visitor’s guide for the festival, including travel advice for getting to/around Leeds, which can be found here.

Today we’re looking at this year’s free mid-con party!




2017’s party will be taking place Saturday 23rd September, and will be held at the excellent Trinity Kitchen from 7pm until 1am! The perfect way to unwind after a hectic day on the con floor.

Thanks to our amazing pals at comiXology, and to celebrate their 10th anniversary, this year’s mid-con party will be free entry! There’ll be a wide range of gourmet and street food vendors to choose from, and we’ll have the drinks and music flowing until late, so help us celebrate another Thought Bubble in style, with special guest DJs spinning tunes until the early hours (and some surprises too!).

Space is strictly limited and you’ll need your weekend wristband, exhibitor wristband, or guest pass to gain entry. We expect it will be busy, so come early. Entry will be on a first-come-first-served basis and there may be queues.

It’s also important to note that this event is strictly over-18s only, so please remember to bring photo ID with you along with your wristband/guest/exhibitor pass.

Venue information for this year’s festival can be found by clicking here.



Don’t forget that you can get live updates on all the current Thought Bubble action, please follow us on Twitter, or like us on Facebook, and we hope we’ll see you for this year’s festival in just over a week!
