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.

The 2018 event took over the beautiful Cleethorpes Leisure Centre, where we continued the 'bigger and better' trend with traders, computers, tabletop games, virtual reality, a dedicated NERF and drone racing arena, 3D printer displays, retro gaming, Lasertag arena and of course our stage which featured panels, Q&A sessions, special guests and live musicians.

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

FantastiCon 2019 is already shaping up to be bigger and better than ever before!

Attractions will include, but are by no means limited to;

  • The return of Richard Dixon's escape room!
  • NERF wars! Yes, genuine all weekend NERF wars for all the family to enjoy.
  • Drone racing!
  • Meeting and chatting with the vibrant cosplay community.
  • Live music! Artists to be confirmed.
  • 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, No Man's Sky, 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 with Sam '16-bit' Stanley.
  • John Mitchell with his super popular four way Mariokart tournament!
  • Joined in live Q&A and panels.
  • Listen to exciting, dramatised book readings from our Fantastic authors.
  • 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 will be happening at FantastiCon 2019 over a full weekend of activity packed fun on the 17th and 18th August 2019!
