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!

GAME Update

GAME have confirmed that, as well as their excellent selection of merchandise, they’ll also be bringing two Playstation VR headsets with a selection of different experiences to SCGC.

Prices for these will be £5 for a 15 minute experience and £10 for a 30 minute experience, and will include titles such as Ocean Descent, Battlezone, RIGS, and EVE Valkyrie. For over 18’s there will also be the opportunity to play the Resident Evil 7 Midnight Experience.

There will be no pre-booking for these experiences, so make sure to arrive good and early.
