Absolutely brilliant event ! Fantastic organisation, really varied and interesting traders, superb amount if cosplayers! I can believe you surpassed last years wonderful show but somehow you did ! The event that just gets better and better! Be sure to book for 2020 folks!
Myself and james had a lovely time at our first unleashed event and it will not be our last.
The entry, stalls and attractions were all fantastically priced so reasonable we came away really happy with lots of merchandise and having met lots of cast members. The food side of things were silly price £2.10 for a can of pop is silly but thats down to the venue not unleashed and did not take away from our day or the experience. Cant wait for the next one in February
Hi it was mine and my cousin Susan's first time it was brilliant never knew how much walking there is to do and see everything too very impressed this could be the best convention yet. The Harry Potter cast were so friendly to talk to and took their time listening to us what had been going on in their time on the films and to have the opportunity to get up on stage and have my picture taken. Thank u for an excellent day I went home so tired I crashed out on my bed when I got home.
Both the Comic-Con and the venue were absolutely brilliant. The wide range of stalls plus other activities and entertainment made the day even better. Everybody we met was friendly and created a wonderful fun atmosphere.

Second year attending York Unleashed as a trader! I love this convention - it's lively and fun without being as overwhelming as some of the multi-day cons, and it's handily almost right out my back door!
The attendees are lovely, the cosplay scene is amazing, but most importantly the organisers do an amazing job! Looking forward to coming back next year, as well as adding Leeds and the York Winter 'Con to my list!
Thanks so much to the Unleashed Team, for making York Unleashed (and the rest of the unleashed Events!) happen!
Fantastic event. Busy but good. Good range of stalls nice to see artists work.
Awesome day with lots of pictures taken, an amazing venue with amazing people.
In the immortal words of Arnie “I ‘ll be back “

What an event, we chose to buy golden tickets, not really knowing what to expect but the evening before event to very early access and the welcome by the event organisers was amazing. The people, Paul, Sharon, Lianne, Lee, Phil whom we met the night before and were so generous with their time were so passionate about what they did. You can tell that is a family event but it’s massive, run with professional precision by people who love what they do.
Thank you all, and we can’t wait to see you all again.
This was my first ComicCon ever and I really enjoyed it. The stalls and events were great and the atmosphere was fabulous throughout the day. Your crew were really helpful too.
We entered the costume competition as a group and there was a bit of confusion from the hosts on stage when we went up so we're hoping there will be a group competition in future events.
Staff very friendly, cosplayers very friendly too. Excellent merchandise, and lots going on all day.
I will definitely be returning, Unleashed events are the best.
My 1st ever Comic con at the age of 49 , it was awesome, everyone was friendly and really nice. I'm not going to miss one from now on . Went to meet Paul Mcgann and was not disappointed, Thank you for a brilliant day .
PS will be coming in Cosplay at the next one just for the fun of it .
Unleashed fairs are always well organised, and well attended.
There's always a fantastic diversity of people and traders, which shows the hard work and effort that Lee and Sharon put into them.
Professionally ran and top hosts. Always made to feel welcome.
A great event. Thanks Unleashed. The atmosphere was great, as usual, relaxed and happy. It’s like a big Newcastle family all coming together, even though some were from further afield. We’ll definitely be looking forward to the next Newcastle Unleashed.
Both Comic-Cons we have been to have been both wonderful to be a part of, and wonderful to experience from both sides. The staff have always been incredibly welcoming, looked after us and generally game for a laugh for joining in our madcap ideas. Looking forward to seeing everyone again in York!
FANTASTIC!!! Unleashed events are nothing short of fantastic!
A wonderful atmosphere to comfortably cosplay and meet with like minded people.
Great guests, stage talks & attractions, TONS of vendors, wrestling, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Anime, Ghostbusters, superheroes... Whatever you are into, they got you covered!
Can not recommend highly enough!
UNLEASHED EVENTS 11/10
Fantastic day. So many original and inventive costumes! Loved the new venue. The speakers could have been better placed/turned up. The nine in our group all enjoyed it immensely. Thank You!
Had an amazing day cant wait for next year
First Comic Con and not disappointed. My three kids really enjoyed it. Kid friendly, very personable, funny and patient stall holders. Lots to do. We had advance tickets although I wouldn't rush to be there for 10am again. We were ready to go by 12.30 as the food/bar situation was not good. Long queues for chips in a tray and very limited seating. As such we missed the cosplay comp and entertainment as they were mid afternoon.
Hi there I had a wonderful fabulous amazing day at my first Comic Con at St James park it's was totally amazing fully enjoyed it and to see a.lot of people getting dressed up as there superheroes and been part of Coseplay as well it's was brilliant chatting meeting new people and making new friends as well and seeing all the stalls and the merchandise and memorable that was on display and on sale and seeing rhem celebrities as well getting there autographs and getting my autograph book signed as well and getting my photo taken with some props from films as well its was spectacular well organised well done to all the people that went through all the trouble of organised it Well I will be definitely coming again next year The Staff were brilliant totally amazing and there if you need assistance or any help at all. The only down side to it was it's should of been on the full two days on Saturday and Sunday . Well hoping hopefully that it comes back up here next year and making it the full weekend permanent ever single time at Newcastle St James park.
Contract Wrestling Academy
Once again had an amazing time at Newcastle Comic-Con. The events are ALWAYS fantastically organised, have some amazing stands, great guests and a brilliant atmosphere.
We cannot thank the team at Unleashed enough for making us feel like part of the family and we cannot wait to join you again in August!
Always a professionally ran, fun and varied event... On top of that, where else would you see a Wrestling match mid con?
Honestly the nicest friendliest events I’ve been to in a long time. The staff are lovely and their event is run in a way that includes everyone regardless of age or ability. I try my beat to attend the events I can as they are worth the money and travel time for definite! Keep the good work up you guys <3
Teesside comicon was awesome, spent the day dressed as spiderman, continued the bromance with deadpool and bought me some graphic novels. Some pretty awesome trade stands too, may have also purchased a few new tees....
Tired out from a fantastic day, but what made it better was making so many kids days, posing as spiderman for photos (and the occasional grown up too) keeping the dream of superheros being real alive just like i believed as a child. Look forward to attending more events whenever possible. I loved it, my daughter loved it, and even the good lady who isnt into comics enjoyed it too. Great day for all the family.
Question is........ will i still be spiderman next time?......(deadpool hopes so...... love you dp ????)
Had a great time, lovely to see people putting so much time and effort into their cosplay outfits. Well done guys you all looked fabulous.
The stalls were fantastic, great stuff to buy or just to look at, the boys really enjoyed themselves.
Cant wait for the next one ????

We had a fabulous day at Star Wars Unleashed in Billingham. So much to do and see in a family-friendly atmosphere, with plenty of room to move around, an excellent variety of stalls/entertainment, and with lots of photo opportunities with costumers. We highly recommend you attend an Unleashed event, you won't be disappointed!
First time been to an unleashed event and it was great. Everyone was friendly and loved all stalls and photo opportunities. Will be going to more from now on.
Awwsome event as always took the whole family to this one. The event was well managed credit to the organizers.
Omg I had an amazing day and bought some amazing stuff but OMG THANK YOU ADAM BASIL FOR MAKING ME SOOOOO HAPPY AHHHH
Sarah and David
Unleashed at Doncaster was brilliant they had amazing guests who were all polite and professional. They also shared their experiences of being actors. There were plenty of different stalls and a lot of people dressed up. A fun family day out
I loved it, went to the Donny one, was an absolute blast, I love spending money lol.
Wow okay Gateshead comic con was absolutely amazing there were so many nice people who asked for pictures and so many cosplyers who just have great fun. The stalls are great aswell there was so much stuff to buy. I really recommend this to anyone who has some geeky blood in them
First time at Gateshead took my son and his friend. Was brilliant,start to finish. The actors were very friendly so were the staff. We got the advance tickets. Glad as the queue was quite big. Will be back. Thankyou.
We had a fantastic day , my 3 year old son loved it everyone was really friendly and amazing with him
Thank you for making my son first comic con brilliant for him
Loved Gateshead unleashed today! Met the 5th Dr Who Peter Davison! And seen loads of great cos play from star trek, star wars, Dr Who, marvel and DC superhero s. Ghost busters were fab, the greatest showman and the dinosaur and transformers. So much lego figures !

Had an amazing time at Gateshead unleashed. Loving the geeks corner, loving it all, breaking boundaries, totally different.
Well done guys: once again a fantastic event at Gateshead thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t wait for the next one :) hats off to all the organisers
Thank you so much to the Unleashed Team for an utterly amazing Con today in Gateshead. Today was my granddaughters first ever con and the team were very helpful and friendly giving us directions for changing areas and a pushchair stop etc. What an incredible team! Thanks again guys! You’re fantastic x
What a fab time today at Gateshead Unleashed! The advance tickets came in really handy, we have 3 year old twins and it meant no queuing and we managed to get round the stalls when it was quieter. Staff were fab, they all spoke to the kids and really made their day. Adam Basil was an absolute gent. They were still talking about who they had met when putting them to bed. We’re now looking forward to Hartlepool Unleashed in November!
Absolutely fantastic event, great organisation by the event staff who made everyone feel welcome. A great range of traders and stalls!
Highly recommended and we will be seeing you all again soon!
Thoroughly enjoyed my very first comicon experience. So many amazing things and the atmosphere was fantastic!
Absolutely awesome day at gateshead comic con! Got to meet the brilliant Peter Davison and get some fantastic geeky merch. Really quick on the door with our advance tickets and Easy access for my mam in her wheelchair! Everyone was lovely and Unleashed events are always great :)
I just want to say a massive thank you to the fabulous Unleashed Events team which were amazing with me since helping to get a ticket to Bradford Unleashed coming all the way from Brazil to see Peter Davison again. As my anxiety normally builds up massively at events like this,the whole atmosphere at Bradford Unleashed made me feel relaxed + welcomed and made the whole difference to me. Fair prices and free panels, guests at ease with us and lovely traders with everything geeky. You have made my day and next time I'm in the UK and my travel schedule allows to go to another Unleashed event,I'll be there again. Keep the good work coming!
Lovely time at Thirsk comic con. Everyone was so friendly and it was great to see all the costumes.

It seemed busier today - will you expand and get a bigger venue in future?
And no offence but the food was better this time.
Nice to see some of the same stalls again.
Cos Play - FAB!
Loving the Ghostbusters team!!
Celebrity guests were lovely too.
REALLY enjoyed it!
Cheers to all the organisers ????????
Had a great time at Bradford Unleashed today. The free panel talks with Peter and Hattie were fab. Looking forward to Leeds in June and York in August. Great work as always Unleashed team!
Loved it came all the way from peterlee even though it was packed will be going to the next one
It was really good tbh, the cookie and brownie stand was amazing ʕ•ٹ•ʔ I loved the anime section although the items were pretty expensive
A nice and welcoming staff and great stalls, but Newcastle was in a poor location. A tiny hallway leading to tiny rooms made it difficult to move... But i cant wait for gateshead
Had a fab day showing of the 3d printer with edd ty for haveing us there
This was our first time and chose a small event, my son has ASD and ADHD so unfortunately it was a bit narrow and cramped with no safe space to retreat too queue meltdown ..... but the entire day was saved by absolutely lovely staff working the event who were super friendly and helpful. All the stall holders were amazing and took the time to chat , the characters were approachable and we ended up loving the day. One stall holder in particular deserves a special mention for making my boy feel fabulous Ed Curran of artistic ninjitsu, he talked nd gave him free samples of things he had made, making the day the best, we will be getting tickets for Gateshead now!
Pamela & Ian
Our first Comicon and we had a really nice time. Everyone was pleasant and pleased to see you there. Some great cosplay and lovely people willing to have a selfie or photo taken. Some good stalls and reasonable prices. We will definitely be going to another Unleashed Event this year.
What a great little comicon,couldn't believe how many people were there,a brilliant event in a lovely hotel,even a bar to disappear to for a coffee,then back to the event,The Unleashed events seem to be getting more popular, glad I came,roll on Gateshead Unleashed
We have just come back from Newcastle Unleashed. A small event, but loads of fun. We had a group of young people in tow and it was very much a child/family friendly event. Everyone was very friendly and the atmosphere was great.
Fantastic day today at Newcastle Comicon at The Jury's Inn ! Kids and myself had a great time.
Great day out at stockport comic con brilliant as always loved it
My son came today for a birthday treat and it was his first one ever I'm sure he'll be saving up for the next one he absolutely loved it made it the best birthday ever
Me and my little boy are mad on doctor who so dressed up as an weeping angel an dalek he loved it wasnt alittle crowned but great fun expected alittle more for kids like past comic con we been too but all in all had an lovely day met some amazing people too xxx
Been attending Unleashed Events for approximately 5 years, both as a trader and as a general punter. I find them to be very friendly and relaxing conventions, with lots to see and do. Credit to Team Unleashed who are always happy to help out too!
Top day out at Muddlesborough Unleashed Comic con today. My two boys loved it and everyone was so friendly. Great stalls, costumes and entertainment. Really well organised, thanks.
Today was my 5year olds first comic-con. It was so family friendly. The staff and traders were brilliant, very friendly and knowledgeable. We loved it and will be attending the next one.
Me and my friend took our little ones here today for there first ever comicon! They had a fab time! Will definitely be coming back! ????
Hi fellow geeks me and my friend dom had a great time and really enjoyed it he has done many comic cons and it was my second one and i loved it especially getting photos witj sully and my great fluffy hug of him
We came to Middlesbrough unleashed today and it was brilliant. Really enjoyed ourselves. Will definitely be back again
absolutely amazing! first time going to a comic con and so far I can wait for the next one loved the staffs costumes!
Ive been going to Unleashed events for a couple of years now. Great value for money, safe family environment and lots to keep even the youngest child (or child at heart) entertained. Thoroughly recommend these events to everyone. Go see people.
The first ever con I went to was an unleashed event and I felt so welcomed! There was so much to see and do. That was almost three years ago and I'm still going to many unleashed events. There's always new attractions and amazing guests and everyone has a great time!
As a cosplayer I have the privelege to attend many events far and wide. Unleashed events are some of the best and after 3 years of attending I even book annual leave now to try attend them. Friendly atmosphere, great guests and just a very welcoming team. Never done an event? You won't go far wrong starting here
Simply the best Comic Conventions on the scene, Some of the Best staff you'll ever meet, Great attractions, Fantastic Stalls, Top Costumers (Not Biased due to playing that role once >.>) and most importantly of all; Unleashed Events have that close knit, Tight, Community feel that all the big flashy Comic Conventions can't have.
Never let down by a day at Unleashed. Keep doing what you're doing, I'm here for you ;)
We have traded at unleashed events for 4 years, some of the best events we have ever done. Staff are amazing and knowledgeable. Highly recommend both trading and visiting these events for a fun day out.
Been coming to the events for four years now, from the magical magic and mayhems to the Unleashed events in York, Bradford and Middlesbrough, there's always an array of traders and fantastic guests, if you want a great day out, get yourself down to an Unleashed event!
Fantastic events from the start to finish ,these events are family friendly and make you feel welcome. I highly rate you go at least 10 times ,as each event is different and so much to see and do ......
Princess Parties Hull have been to Unleashed events for several years. Very friendly and welcoming team. Always lots to see and do.
Been to these events for almost 5 years now and they just keep getting bigger and better! Always so much to do and always a wide range of traders to find what you’re looking for!
We have been to lots of unleashed events now and each is packed full of fun, guests, attractions, things to buy, things to see, things to do and more.
Unleashed events generally don't feel overcrowded and have a friendly welcoming atmosphere that keeps us coming back for more.
Always a great day out and highly recommended.
The Reed Family!
Wow... amazing... wonderful... fun - what more can you ask for? We take the little ones to most of the events organised by the company and must say that it's worth every penny to see our little ones faces light up at meeting all the characters. The organisers are brill too with plenty of fun and laughter along the way - well worth a visit. The only problem you'll find is that you enjoy them so much that you start to work your weekends around them! Well done to all the team!

I've been to a few Tesside Unleashed events and they have always been well organised and the staff have always been nice and helpful, looking forward to the next one.
I'm very new to these events, but after my first being an unleashed, I'm happy to say all events I've been to are with these guys! They truly are fantastic. Everyone involved is so friendly and They really pulls out all the stops! Would recommend their events to everyone and I can't wait to go to another!
Last year was my first con and it was at teeside unleashed ... and to be honest I loved it.. everyone made my family and myself feel totally welcome... and it has helped us build a friendship that means alot... and this year it just got bigger and better as it will continue to do... absolutely pleasure going to unleashed events and absolutely honour being thought of as friends
Teeside Unleashed Last year was the first event my family and I went to.. It was beyond our expectations and more.. Lee and his family run it so professionally but with that extra touch of personality.. always filled to the rafters with cosplayers, geeks and families out to have a great day.. I can't wait till the next one as they just keep getting bigger and better. X
Always a fabulous even arranged by the team. The amount of effort put in is visible right from queueing to get in! And such a lovely team who genuinely have time for everyone. Love the unleashed events, can't wait for the next one
Absolutely love going to Teesside Unleashed! Always a great laugh with amazing cosplayers and guests, incredibly well organised events and the staff are lovely! Can't wait for the next one! <3
Teesside Unleashed was the first con I ever went to in the UK. It was also the first time I've ever cosplayed. The atmosphere was nothing less than welcoming and encouraging. It was well organised and just overall fun, exciting and wonderful to be a part of. I look forward to all the events!
I've been going to conventions for a couple of years now and I can honestly say that the Unleashed events are the best I've been to. I've been all over the country and no event has the same atmosphere . There is a real family feel to the event and the team makes everyone feel welcome. Great guests and good competitions. There is always loads to see and the charities that attend always do well. I recommend any and all unleashed events.
I've been going to Teesside Unleashed since TU4, and every time it has gotten better and better, meeting so many new friends who I like to consider my geeky family, everything is run brilliantly and it is always a good laugh! Here's to many more!
I felt very involved at Teesside Unleashed 7 and highly appreciate that. Very much excited for the next event, as usual. Perhaps one day bigger things can happen at Teesside Unleashed for me!
Kyle "Reaver" Wortley
I'm fairly new to the world of display, having only started attending events last year.
I was nervous about coming to Teeside, as it was an area I'd never visited before, and wasn't sure what the event would be like.
However, I needn't have worried, as there were staff and Wardens of the Geek Asylum on hand to help people find their way round. Everyone was super friendly and it was an amazing atmosphere! The stalls have near enough EVERYTHING geeky, and it's like Aladdin's cave of treasures!
So, friendly, geeky and awesome. That's how I'd describe Teeside Unleashed!
I'm relatively new to the convention scene, having been attending them for only 10 months, but I always know I'm going to have a great time at any Unleashed events. Well organised, friendly, exciting...the list goes on. They really know how to put on a great show, and I whole-heartedly anticipate that their future conventions will be even bigger and better.
When I come to an event like this, I know I'm going to have an amazing time with fantastic people! The atmosphere, the different products on offer, the way that you end up feeling and the fact you have all these friends old and new enjoying the atmosphere with you.
Having only attended 2 come upto now, York and teesside 7. I can honestly say I had a great time at both and hope to attend more in the future having met quite a few amazing people
For the past few years, I have had the honour and privilege to be involved in these events. The number of people I see walking away at the end of the day with smiles on their faces more than makes up for all the hard work the organisers put into the event. Competitively priced and with a great atmosphere these cons would definitely take some beating.
Always pleased with the events organised by the team. They deliver a first class service to ensure families, costumers and traders have an awesome experience. Keep up the super work and can't wait for the next event
I've attended so many Unleashed events, and they just get bigger and better! The organisers are obviously passionate about what they do and actually care more that people are having a great experience than profits! See you at the next ones!!
Sub Zero Comics
Always great events, 100% commitment to the event, traders and the public. can't rate them high enough.
Love the events! Every time I attend they get better and better - excited for the next one - Teesside Unleashed bring it on!
