ABOUT MONOPOLY EVENTS
Monopoly Events is the brainchild of CEO Andy Kleek, and its aim is simple, to bring fans together to make fan-based and community driven events. Our slogan 'by the fans for the fans', sums up our ethos perfectly.
Monopoly Events offer a very diverse range of exhibitions, conferences and festivals. Since 2015 we have developed multiple brands, the first being For the Love of Sci-Fi which is now in its 5th year. From this initial convention many others have evolved. For the Love of Horror which crosses a scare attraction with a convention, For the Love of Fantasy, Time Quake Steampunk Festival, Awakening UFO & Conscious Life Expo, and even For the Love of Darts!
Branching off from For the Love of Sci-Fi we have also made Comic Con another one of our major brands, hosting the cities official Comic Cons in Liverpool, Edinburgh and now Manchester. Headline names we have booked include many first time UK and European exclusives including and to name a few, WWE legend Mark Calaway “The Undertaker”, William Shatner, Dolph Lundgren, David Hasselhoff, Teri Hatcher, Steve Guttenberg and many more.
This explosion of events has happened literally over-night, the popularity of our shows is growing massively as we expand around the country to keep up with the demand of our ever increasing fan base. If that was not enough, Monopoly Events also hosts music festivals. Macclesfield Festival is a family friendly festival for all ages, and features headline bands like The Happy Mondays, Soul II Soul, and Heather Small, as well as Cbeebies household names for the kids like Mr Bloom and Cook N Line. The Great Northern SKA Festival is now in its fourth year and firmly established as one of the UK’s leading SKA events with names such as Ali Campbell’s UB40 gracing the stage. We have also dared to cross a biker event with a convention and rock festival! UK Bike Fest Manchester is introduced to us for the first year featuring cult guests from Sons of Anarchy.
We are proud to be the driving force behind some of the most innovative and fresh concepts which has given the convention market a new lease of life, we are proud to be making a difference and changing the face of the convention scene in the UK. We’ve no plans of slowing down either, so fasten your seat belts and enjoy the ride as Monopoly Events takes you into a new era of pop culture and music events!
