About the Essex Card Show

The annual Essex Card Show returns to a new larger location for the 2023 event, which will once again cater to all trading card collectors across the hobby. The premier TCG and sports card convention of Essex County gives collectors access to numerous vendors offering Pokémon, Magic: The Gathering and other TCGs, sports cards, comic books and other collectibles and accessories.

Essex Card Show ticket holders will have access to the largest space ever used for the annual convention. The new location at The Brentwood Centre will include more than 180 vendor tables, where visitors will be able to buy, trade and learn more about the hobby, all in a fun atmosphere that includes a large trading area and a licensed bar and cafe, so there is something for everyone! This is a family-friendly event, and all ages are welcome. Single admission tickets range from £5 to £15, with a four-ticket Family option (two adults and two children) for £25. Get your tickets here!

The CGC UK team will also be at the Essex Card Show, where representatives will accept submissions, answer questions and provide information to interested collectors. Keep reading for further instructions on how to get your submission ready.
