Online Pre-booking closes on Friday 19th May

If you've already booked your tickets for SCGC online, well done!  We'll be posting them out to you on Monday

If you still want to book your tickets online, you have until 23:59 on Friday 19th May to do so.

On Saturday 20th May (1 week before the Con!) we'll be removing the option to buy tickets from the website (because we wouldn't be able to guarantee them reaching you in time after this date).

You'll still be able to buy tickets from The Gamers Emporium and The Comix Shoppe until Friday 26th May.

Ticket holders will get queue jump access into the venue on the day, via their own special entrance rather than having to queue with the muggles who left it to the last minute.

Good news and Bad news

Good news and bad news folks!

The GOOD news is that GAME have informed us that they won't be charging for their VR experience at the con. They've also given us a little more detail on what they'll be bringing along;

A 12 screen setup split into different activities;
- PSVR with Ocean Descent
- Minecraft time build
- Split-screen Rocket League offline
- FIFA skills challenge
- Street Fighter “King of the Hill” challenge

They'll also have a Retail Table and will be offering The GAME Cosplay Selfie Challenge. Come to the GAME stall in costume, have your photo taken and Twitter will decide who wins a GAME reward card points prize.

The BAD news is that our guest Andy Chambers will be unable to attend due to unforeseen family commitments. We wish Andy and his family all the best, and we hope that he'll be able to join us at next year's event.

We are pleased to announce that we'll be having live music at the Convention again this year.

This year, we'll be enjoying the talents of Jollyboat, the UK's top comedy pirate geek rock duo.

Mixing comedy, live music, visuals, audience interaction and a little behind-the-scenes computer programming, Jollyboat put on a show unlike anything you've seen before!

They have performed at Glastonbury among many other festivals, won the UK Musical Comedy Awards, and toured Europe & Australia. Jollyboat's act is energetic, visual and packed with fast-paced gags. They always have fun, and it's highly infectious!
