The 2020 meeting of the comic book and entertainment convention, set to take place in October in New Dock Hall at the Royal Armouries, was postponed due to Covid.

It was rescheduled to June 13, 2021, but has been delayed by two weeks in the hope that most lockdown restrictions will be lifted by June 21, as per the Government's plan.

Leeds Comic-Con will now take place on Sunday, June 27.
