“What I’d really like to get across to people in Bedford is just how accessible the show is for those that know nothing about comics,” said organiser and Close Encounters’ owner, Jeff Chahal. “We have internationally recognised artists with us all weekend. If someone has an interest in art, there’s something at the show for them.” Day tickets are just £16 for adults, £5.50 for 6 – 12 year olds. Under 6s are free.
