Like most things, the Galaxy event started back in 2017 as a simple idea. To bring a Comic Con style event to Jersey, to celebrate our love of pop culture and to bring a fun, modern and exciting event to the Channel Islands.
Over the course of six months and with the support of a growing group of passionate and talented people, we delivered the first ever Galaxy event in June 2018. Galaxy - A Sci-Fi Celebration.
The Event as the name suggests was themed around Sci-Fi, some of the highlights included actors from the original
Star Wars movies, the DeLorean “Time Machine” from the Back to the Future movie and Boogie Storm who were finalists and golden buzzer winners from Britain’s got Talent! It garnered attention from media both local and national and to go from concept to delivery of a large scale media event in 6 months was an achievement our team are proud of, and it’s something we wanted to do again.
We reached out to our guests and customers to find out what we did well, what we didn’t and what they wanted more of. With that in hand, the next Galaxy event began to take shape to deliver a bigger and more ambitious event, with more to see, more to do and most of all, deliver a planned annual pop culture event to the Channel Islands, to bring an experience to the local community that is usually inaccessible and to support local charities, projects and businesses at the same time.
We have now delivered the first ever Comic Con event in Jersey & Channel Islands - Galaxy Comic Con on the 22nd & 23rd February 2020.
We are delighted to report that the event was a success and due to the overwhelming support and feedback we are now in a position to plan future events!
