Security and cosplay at EGX 2017

As with all live events across the UK, EGX 2017 will see increased security measures in place including mandatory bag searches at the main entrance and additional security staff.

In order to keep the entry process as efficient as possible please limit the number of personal items you bring with you to EGX. Where possible please consider not bringing bags or rucksacks. The more items you bring and the larger the bag, the longer it will take for you to enter the event.

Those intending to cosplay at EGX should pay attention to the following list of items that are banned from the event. Please do not bring any of these items with you.

  • Metallic blades
  • Deactivated firearms / realistic metal guns
  • Functional bows or crossbows
  • Heavy wooden or metal baseball bats
  • Any item capable of firing a projectile
  • Anything sharp or pointed that could cause injury

Plastic / toy firearms are acceptable but must feature a brightly coloured tip or similar so that they're easily identifiable as non-functioning firearms.

As with previous EGX events, a weapons and props check area will be in operation and any items that are deemed unsafe will be confiscated until you're ready to leave the event.

The safety and security of all attendees is of utmost importance to us and we thank you for your understanding. Tickets for EGX 2017 are available now.
