How do I get a ticket and how much are they?

Tickets can be purchased online via our tickets page, at the ACC box office or over the phone directly from Ticket Quarter.

There will be a limited number of special tickets available, 100 V.I.P & 200 Premium. No more of these will be available once they have sold out.

There will be a set desk at the venue where you can collect your items. Upon entry you will be given a ticket to use to collect your items. Hand this in to collect your items from the desk. You can only collect your items if you have this ticket available so please keep it safe.


Are tickets available to buy offline?

Yes, however only on the weekend of the event.


I notice we have to pay a booking fee, what is this for?

Our ticket provider for Liverpool, Ticket Quarter, charge a booking fee for each individual ticket sold. Booking fees are not uncommon with top notch ticket providers and the extra costs go toward many things. Costs are split between their staff wages, support and servers. Costs also cover things like our ticket scanners and on site support over the weekend. This means we are able to offer instant, safe and secure event tickets and means we can process attendees faster meaning for drastically shorter queues on the event weekend.


Is SunnyCon Anime Expo Liverpool Disability Friendly?

SunnyCon Anime Expo Liverpool is a fully accessible event. ACC Liverpool seeks to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all delegates attending any event. The venue is accessible for wheelchair users or those with specific access requirements. Visitors and their personal assistants will find ACC Liverpool easily accessible . Parking is adjacent to the venue with dedicated accessible spaces. There are accessible toilets on all floors.


Are there tickets available for carers?

Tickets are available for carers and they are free. All you need is to be accompanied by your carer with proof that they are your carer. This can either be a letter or ID card.


Am I allowed to take photographs and videos?

We welcome you to take as many photographs and videos as you can, although please be aware that if someone asks you not to then please respect their wishes. Any form of harassment will be treat seriously and will lead to you having to be removed from the event.


No photography or videos are allowed to be taken for financial gain, they are only allowed to be used for personal use unless cleared and agreed with a member of the SunnyCon Anime Expo management in writing


Will any photos of me be taken or will I be filmed?

Because of the nature of SunnyCon Anime Expo we attract a lot of press and media attention, what this means is that there are always many film crews, photographers, publications and broadcasters in attendance.


By attending SunnyCon Anime Expo Liverpool you are agreeing that you are allowing press and SunnyCon Anime Expo crews to use your image in productions and for press and promotion however if there are any images or footage you wish us to remove from our promotions please feel free to contact us and we can take them down.


Do the guests sign autographs?

Guests are more than willing to sign anything for you however as part of line control we have to implement some restrictions to make sure everyone gets the chance.


Restrictions are;


Max of 4 items only. Time is a factor and to make sure everyone gets the chance we have limited it to only 4 items to be signed


Only 1 photograph per signing, again as with signings to make sure more fans get to meet the guests we ask that you only take one photo with guests.


Be polite, when meeting a guest please don’t point a camera at them or demand they do the voice. If you are after a catchphrase ask beforehand and get permission to film.


No line jumping/keeping spaces, pretty self-explanatory…….


No inappropriate items to sign, please use common sense only bring items relevant for guests to sign e.g video game boxes, posters, t-shirts are acceptable. Your bum, a baby, genitalia or pornography is not suitable for signings (yes all have been asked for at previous events)


Is there bag storage or a cloakroom at the venue?

Yes, SunnyCon Anime Expo Liverpool runs a cloak room. This will be available over the weekend to drop off all cosplay, coats and bags.


What are the rules on weapons?

We don't allow real weapons but prop weapons are allowed. We ask they be no bigger than 1.5 meters in height and made out of safe materials such as foam or soft woods.  Outside of the convention we ask you transport prop weapons by concealing them as they can cause alarm to the general public.


How do I become a volunteer?

Volunteering is yet to be set due to the venue change. More details will be released closer to the date.


Where can I find lost items?

From time to time people lose items at SunnyCon Anime Expo Liverpool but not to worry we have a lost property box situated at the front registration desk and anything handed in will be there. If you discover something missing after the convention then e-mail us at . Please take care of all possessions over your weekend.


What days can I see the guests?

All SunnyCon Anime Expo Liverpool guests attend all days of the event however they will be scheduled in places and you will have to see the timetable when it is completed to see which guest will be where and what they will be doing.


Can my friend (or family) come in with me if I have a VIP ticket and they only have general?

No. We are sorry and understand that you would like to spend time with friends who may of missed out on VIP tickets but  it would devalue the extra VIP attendees pay if we were to give extra perks to those who didn't pay for it.
If you are the paying adult with an under 12 then they are allowed access with you but won't get the free items, just the early entry.


Will guests be there that are advertised?

Yes. This goes without saying any guest we announce will of signed a contract and will be scheduled for attendance at the event. It has only been once in our history where guests have had to cancel last minute meaning we had no guests available for the weekend however if changes are made we do everything within our power to make sure replacement guests and events still run.


What is the policy with under 12's tickets?

Under 12's can enter the convention for free with a paying adult. There is a limit of no more than 2 under 12's to one paying adult. There is no need for a ticket as you can collect wristbands upon entry on the weekend.
