We like to think that we run a different kind of convention to most and we hope that those of you who have attended in the past think we've done just that.

This year's event will take over the beautiful Cleethorpes Leisure Centre, where we'll continue the 'bigger and better' trend with loads of traders, computers, tabletop games, virtual reality systems, a dedicated NERF and drone racing arena, 3D printer displays, retro gaming, Lasertag arena and of course our stage which will feature panels, Q&A sessions, special guests and live musicians.

That, twinned with our famous 'free biscuits and soft drinks for everyone' pledge, will ensure that FantastiCon 2018 is the biggest and best yet!

FantastiCon 2018 is already shaping up to be bigger and better than ever before!

Attractions include but are by no means limited to;

  • An escape room!
  • Did we mention NERF wars? Yes, genuine all weekend NERF wars for all the family to enjoy.
  • Meeting and chatting with the vibrant cosplay community.
  • Live music with Saraswati, Jemma Johnson, JollyBoat, Crusaders and more!
  • The very latest in virtual reality with Oculus Rift , HTC Vive and Playstation VR, all under the watchful eye of our VR demonstrators.
  • Seeing the latest games in action in our technology corner, including Elite: Dangerous, Star Citizen, Overwatch, Sea of Thieves and many more.
  • Grab a literary bargain and try your luck with the famous Fantastic Raffle at the Fantastic Books Store.
  • Get a photo with the Daleks, the TARDIS, the Bat Signal and many more props built by superfans the Sons of Skaro (featuring our friends Robert Philips and Euan Gloyn).
  • Go back to the old school with our super popular retro gaming area ran by Lee 'Keep It Retro' Playle and Sam '16-bit' Stanley. This year we have many more cabinets coming along, some extremely rare examples!
  • Joined in live Q&A and panels.
  • Listen to exciting, dramatised book readings from bestselling authors Kate Russell and Drew Wagar.
  • Explore 3D printing technology and have a chat with our experts.
  • And to keep everyone refreshed - unlimited free soft drinks and biscuits for all (last year ALL the jammy dodgers were quickly consumed by the Hammers of Slough so we've doubled our order.
  • Speaking of refreshment, don't forget the Golden Grail Tavern, a medieval themed bar stocking much delights as traditional mead, ale, grog, nettle wine and more!

All of this and MUCH more is happening at FantastiCon 2018 over a full weekend of activity packed fun!
