We regret to announce that, for reasons beyond our control, Simon Williams has had to cancel his appearance at this weekend’s Swansea Comic and Gaming Convention. Simon sends his apologies, and hopes that he’ll be able to make it to next year’s event. Whilst it is unfortunate that Simon can’t make it, we’ve still got a great line-up of guests coming; including The Etherington Brothers, Dylan Teague, Conor Boyle, Steve Lockley, Pirate Rock Duo Jollyboat and Iron Warrior Cosplay! See you all on Saturday at 10:00 folks!
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.
May The Fourth Be With You y’all!
SCGC is looking for a few more volunteers to help with the on the day running of the event this year.
If you think you could help man the ticket desk, sell raffle tickets, give people directions around the event or just be a generally useful go-fer, then download the application form and get it back to us ASAP.
Blaster Accuracy a bonus, not essential!
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;
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!
Ricky and Adam offer a heartfelt invitation to this year’s Swansea Comic and Gaming Convention which will be held at Brangwyn Hall on Saturday 27th May 2017 (10:00-18:00).
