DISABILITY ACCESS

Taken from the Venue's website:

Disabled facilities are situated on the ground floor and first floor. We have a lift which enables access to the first and second floors. The maximum load weight for this is 190 kg.

Please note that whilst we do everything possible to make your visit to Trades Hall as accessible as possible, the building is very old. There are, therefore, unfortunately some areas that are more difficult to access.

We are delighted to announce that Dan Schoening and Erik Burnham, the team who work on the IDW Ghostbusters comic book range, and Back to The Future comics, are coming to Scotland for a panel and signings!

Dan Schoening has been a professional animator since 2000 and a professional comic book artist since 2011. He currently works for IDW on Ghostbusters, with previous work for Back to the Future, TMNT, and for Archie Comics on Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man. He is based in Victoria, BC.

Erik Burnham is a Minnesotan writer and artist that first broke into comics by way of the Nick Landime feature from Shooting Star Comics. This led to other anthologies and then work for IDW Publishing, up to and including his critically acclaimed work on the GHOSTBUSTERS line of comic books. Erik has been fortunate to work with Cryptozoic Dynamite, IDW, Insight Editions, Marvel and Panini on Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Back to the Future, Galaxy Quest, Scarlet Spider, New Warriors and KISS.

The more tickets we sell, the more guests we can bring to Ecto-Con 2020!

Four time Emmy Award winning makeup artist Eldo Ray Estes is our latest guest for Ecto-Con 2020! Eldo is very much part of the Ghostbusters family, playing one of their more vocal supporters, sporting stunning red hair, cheering them on as they arrive at Dana’s apartment to take on the villainous Gozer in the final battle. With his iconic line, “Ghostbusters, all right!”. His recent work can be seen in films such as “A Simple Favour” with Anna Kendrick, “First Reformed” with Ethan Hawke and the Darren Star television series, “Younger” with Sutton Foster. We are delighted to have Eldo come to Scotland to meet the fans, talk about his time on Ghostbusters and his career in film and television!
