Live Music Act Announced

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!
