In the words of the fest, “it’s about sci-fi, comics, horror, fantasy, films…, but it is also probably the most diverse UK convention in terms of content, attendees and organisers, incorporating technology, media, crafting, comics, entertainments, tastings, and lots more.

We’re a fan-made and fan-led event, an amalgam of community and peers, a time to meet people, make things, and do stuff. Where ever you sit in the geek galaxy, there is something for you.”
