Get your stands out, it's time for us to get ready for our very own Bizarre Adventure! With a new season of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure coming out later this year, it's time for us to celebrate the ripple and of course, Za Warudo!

Oh and for any of you who don't know what we're on about, it's cool - Come along and enjoy our antics anyway, as it'll be another great night of fun and games!

FOODIE PRE-MEET Five Guys (13:00-13:50):

As ever, we love a good nomming session before GeekOut Bristol Meet, so come along and enjoy a bite with us at Five Guys. Just rock on over and join us for delicious burgers.

MAIN EVENT: 14:00-Midnight (Old Market Tavern)

Whether you're a proper gentleman like Jonathan Joestar, or if you're a bit of a rebel like Iggy, this meet is going to be zany and colourful. Filled to the brim with references to the legendary JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, be prepared to face a journey unlike any GeekOut has seen before!


Food & drink can NOT be brought in with you to the Old Market Tavern. If you are caught with food and drink on the premises, you will be asked to leave until you've disposed of your food or drink.

There will be a food menu at Old Market Tavern in the evening! The food is very cheap and it's absolutely delicious! Food is usually available from 6pm.

Final note: If you are asked for ID by the bar staff, we will not vouch for your age - You must provide ID.
