FantastiCon 2016 was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who came and partied with us all weekend, we had a real blast!

FantastiCon 2017 planning is already well underway and we'd like to stay at the Guildhall in Hull.

We like to think that we run a different kind of convention to most and we hope that those of you who attended think we've done just that. This year hundreds of people came and enjoyed awesome fudge and collectables, virtual reality, cosplay, science fiction, fantasy, technology, comics, gaming, books and more.

This year we were open for two days and for just £10 (£8 NUS) per day folks enjoyed;

  • Meeting JRR Tolkien's Great Grandson Royd Tolkien
  • A nightly Nerf War on Saturday and Sunday
  • Trying out the latest virtual reality with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive
  • Seeing the latest games in action in our technology corner, including Elite: Dangerous, Star Citizen, No Man's Sky and many more...
  • Testing a Google Cardboard VR headset with your own phone
  • Driving a Dalek and seeing some amazing creations by Robert Philips, Euan Gloyn and more
  • Watching Simon Fisher Becker's exclusive live one-man show 'let Zygons be Zygons'
  • Joined in live Q&A and workshops both days including authors, musicians, cosplayers, game developers and many more
  • Cosplayers fixed their gear at the dedicated Cosplay Hospital and had their makeup touched up too
  • Listening to book readings from Kate Russell, Drew WagarStuart Aken, John Scotcher and more
  • Enjoyed all things literary in our dedicated LitFest on Sunday
  • Meeting our celebrities, authors and guests
  • LIVE MUSIC from Saraswati, Jemma Johnson and Kitten von Mew (Kitten will also be dancing for you)
  • And to keep everyone refreshed - unlimited free soft drinks and biscuits were enjoyed by all (and ALL the jammy dodgers were quickly consumed by the Hammers of Slough)

All of this and much more is planned for FantastiCon 2017 so watch this space!
