There’s just five days left until 2000 AD celebrates its 40th birthday in style with the 40 Years of Thrill-power Festival in Hammersmith, London.

Tickets for the one-day convention have already sold out and what a day lies in store for ticket-holders – with panels, live drawing, signings, sketching, and with more than 100 guests the chance to meet your heroes from four decades of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic!

Here’s a quick rundown of answers to some of the questions you may have about the event at the Novotel in Hammersmith this Saturday:

Will tickets be available on the door?

No, sorry – the event is completely sold out and there will be no tickets available on the day.

I bought a ticket, what do I do when I come to register?

You will need ID and a copy of your ticket (on your phone or mobile device is fine) to pick up your wristband for entry. In most cases the bank or credit card you used to purchase the ticket will be sufficient as ID, though photo ID will help make the process smoother.

What time can I pick up my tickets from?

Ticket registration takes place in the Chablis Suite on the ground floor of the Novotel from 8am on Saturday 11th February. Once ticket-holders have collected their event wristbands they may join the queue for entry. The show floor will open at 10am. All ticket holders must either queue after registration or wait for those already in the queue to gain entry.

The Novotel has disabled access throughout the venue. People with registered mobility issues who require assistance should make themselves known to volunteers at registration.

I bought a ticket to the event but now can’t make it – can I change the details and give it to a friend?

As stated in the terms and conditions at the time of purchase, all tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable so you cannot give or sell on tickets. If you have registered a ticket for a named individual who cannot make it, they cannot pass or sell on their ticket.

This measure is to prevent ticket touts, to streamline ticket registration on the day, and to ensure Rebellion has a record of named ticket holders in case of any problems.

I bought multiple tickets under my name – what about people I bought tickets for?

If you bought multiple tickets under a single name then you can pick up all the tickets so long as you are the person who bought then and you bring ID.

I bought tickets for my husband/wife/friend, but was not planning to attend. Can they collect the tickets?

Provided the name of the attendee was given at time of purchase then they will be able to collect their ticket by bringing their ID. If the tickets were purchased as a gift but are not in the attendee’s name, they must be picked up by the person who bought them.

I bought a bundle ticket but can’t attend – can I still get my bundle items?

Yes, if you bought a bundle ticket but can’t make the event then please contact with your ticket details and we will arrange for your bundle items to be mailed to you, provided shipping fees are agreed and paid.

I have a ticket but want to bring my young child with me – can they get in free?

Due to the venue’s strict fire safety capacity, all children and babies will require a ticket. If you do not have a ticket for a child then you cannot bring them into the event.
