Jurassic Class (Dundee)
“God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs.”
Jurassic Class is coming to BGCP Comic Con
BGCP presents a comic con experience 65 million years in the making; Jurassic Class. Learn about the creatures that once ruled the Earth; how they came to be, how they lived and how they eventually died out. There is also the opportunity to get hands on with real Dinosaur teeth (including Jurassic Park and Jurassic World favourites Spinosaurus and Mosasaurus) and other fossils. To top it all is a chance to show your own creativity and design your very own Dinosaur, just like Dr. Wu did with the Indominus Rex and Indoraptor in Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Don’t miss it.
BGCP Comic Con was started as The Big Glasgow Comic Page back in July 2012 mostly out of boredom and trying to find more Comic Fans to speak to, The Facebook Page gathered likes extremely fast as there wasn’t anything like it at the time and eventually this led to a Comic Book Group, Pub Quizzes, Tournaments and eventually a Comic Book Market.
We organized BGCP Comic Markets for several years until we had outgrown the smaller venues in Glasgow City Centre so set out to run Comic Cons in and out of Glasgow and further over Scotland including East Kilbride, Rutherglen, Loch Lomond, Dunoon, Aberdeen and countless more towns and cities.

Dundee is Scotland’s fourth-largest city and the 51st-most-populous built-up area in the United Kingdom. The mid-year population estimate for 2016 was 148,280, giving Dundee a population density of 2,478/km2 or 6,420/sq mi, the second-highest in Scotland. It lies within the eastern central Lowlands on the north bank of the Firth of Tay, which feeds into the North Sea. Under the name of Dundee City, it forms one of the 32 council areas used for local government in Scotland.
Within the boundaries of the historic county of Angus, the city developed into a burgh in the late 12th century and established itself as an important east coast trading port. Rapid expansion was brought on by the Industrial Revolution, particularly in the 19th century when Dundee was the centre of the global jute industry. This, along with its other major industries, gave Dundee its epithet as the city of “jute, jam and journalism”.
Today, Dundee is promoted as “One City, Many Discoveries” in honour of Dundee’s history of scientific activities and of the RRS Discovery, Robert Falcon Scott’s Antarctic exploration vessel, which was built in Dundee and is now berthed at Discovery Point. Biomedical and technological industries have arrived since the 1980s, and the city now accounts for 10% of the United Kingdom’s digital entertainment industry, including mobile app development and gaming. Dundee has two universities – the University of Dundee and the Abertay University. In 2014, Dundee was recognised by the United Nations as the UK’s first UNESCO City of Design for its diverse contributions to fields including medical research, comics and video games.
In recent years, Dundee’s international profile has risen. GQ magazine named Dundee the ‘Coolest Little City in Britain’ in 2015 and The Wall Street Journal ranked Dundee at number 5 on its ‘Worldwide Hot Destinations’ list for 2018.
