Patrons of Costa Coffee at Parc Llandudno Retail Park were this morning greeted by more than happy Baristas when a Stormtrooper stopped off for a latte and slice of cake! The appearance was organised to celebrate a sponsorship deal between the Llandudno branch of Costa Coffee and Scifi Wales which this year takes place on Saturday, 1st September at Venue Cymru in Llandudno.
The agreement will mean that comic con fans can save 10% off their Costa Coffee during the week leading up to Scifi Wales just by producing their ticket to the family friendly event. On the day of Scifi Wales an extra special discount of 25% will be given to patrons producing their ticket or showing off their hand stamp.
Robert Dyer, owner of UK Conventions Limited and the organiser of Scifi Wales said, “It’s amazing to see businesses from the local area getting involved with Scifi Wales this year. With Costa on board offering our attendees discounts on coffee, a ticket to Scifi Wales offers even more than usual.” In fact, Robert revealed other meetings have been taking place in Llandudno, with other local businesses wishing to support the event. Robert added, “The support we’ve seen from local businesses this year has been overwhelming and we hope to announce some other surprises shortly”.
Staff at Costa Coffee have also decided to join in with the fun and festivities on the day of Scifi Wales and will be dressed in cosplay costumes to show their support. Izabela Ledru, manager at Costa Coffee Llandudno says, “My staff are super excited to be dressing up for the day and all of them really enjoy the atmosphere that comic con brings to Llandudno”.
This year celebrities from Game of Thrones, Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Red Dwarf and Star Wars will be in attendance with more guests still to be announced. Tickets for Scifi Wales on Saturday, 1st September can be purchased by visiting the Scifi Wales website at www.scifi.wales or directly from the Venue Cymru box office on 01492 872000.
