Win an Oculus VR headset as part of a day of February half-term fun to tease May's Portsmouth Comic Con

FOLLOW a ‘Flotsam and Jetsam’ trail around a city centre park, solve the clues and be in with a chance to win a VR headset this February half-term.

The trail is part of a day of free activities being put on as a taster for this year’s Portsmouth Comic Con – International Festival of Comics in May.

Kids will be able to get crafty and make the mask or helmet of their favourite superhero or get creative and design their own with whatever superpowers they choose at Portsmouth Guildhall on Tuesday, February 22, 10am-2pm.

Plus, have your photo taken with one of GoGeek Events CIC’s amazing superhero cosplayers.

Victoria Park will be site for the Flotsam and Jetsam Trail, where families can solve the clues and perhaps win a VR headset on February 22, 2022

There is no need to book but people are advised to register their interest in advance on the Facebook event here.
