Walker Stalker Con returning to Olympia London with sister show, Heroes & Villains Fan Fest
Following its successful 2016 European debut, which saw 16,000 attendees, Olympia London has today announced the return of Walker Stalker Con, to be held on the 4th & 5th March, 2017. Greg Nicotero, Chandler Riggs and Michael Cudlitz—all stars of the hit show, The Walking Dead—have already been added to the line-up as tickets went on sale earlier this week.
Walker Stalker Con Organiser, James Frazier said, “FanFest.com’s Walker Stalker Con, the leading zombie and horror con in the United States, brought the event to London in hopes of establishing a small event to build off of for future years. London and its attendees blew away those expectations. We look forward to returning for years to come, providing attendees with access to their favourite actors and talent! We can’t thank London enough for its support.”
This support from British fans has led to the decision to bring another show, Heroes & Villains Fan Fest, to Europe for the first time—making its debut at Olympia London on 27th & 28th May 2017.
The show, which was launched in the US in 2015, will give attendees the chance to meet their favourite celebrities, including Stephen Amell, Robin Lord Taylor and Drew Powell through exclusive meet and greets, photo opportunities and panel sessions. Visitors will also have the chance to immerse themselves into the world of heroes and villains through participation in interactive obstacles and games of skills.
Olympia London Head of Sales, Nick Graham said, “The 2016 show was a great launch pad for Walker Stalker Con and we are delighted that they will be returning next year, and to be welcoming Heroes & Villains for the first time. From the outset, our team has had an incredibly collaborative relationship with the organisers and we look forward to the continuation of this with the 2017 edition of their shows.”
