SFW In The City Day 1

For eight years, Chic Festivals has guided and organised the popular Sci Fi & Fantasy Weekender – a packed weekend of entertainment, guests, films and partying all set in the beautiful surroundings of North Wales – and now the team are bringing the show to Sheffield!

Join the SFW team for panels and media guests and music and entertainment and games and books and cosplay and adventure and as much geekery as can be crammed into the space of a weekend!

They’re lining up some of the favourite events and activities from the Weekender: retro gaming, Area 51’s dancers and spectacle, quizzes, Virtual Reality, Sci Fi Bingo, A masquerade ball, cosplay competition, artists strip club, top authors, DJ's plus live music! As much as we can cram into two days in the City!

An event of this magnitude wouldn’t be SFW without some amazing guests, so confirmed already for this event are:

Sylvester McCoy – Famed as playing the seventh incarnation of the Time Lord in Doctor Who, and as the mercurial Radagast the Brown in The Hobbit trilogy, Sylvester will be bringing his own particular brand of mayhem to the City!

James Cosmo – known for Braveheart (1995), Trainspotting (1996) and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005), & of course as Jeor Mormont, Game of Thrones (2016). James is currently appearing in the new parallel Earth SF Series SS-GB playing Harry Woods.

Nick Kellington – Nick shot to fame as children’s characters Igglepiggle (from In the Night Garden) and Dipsy (in Tellytubbies) and has brought his skills as a choreographer to the new Star Wars film Rogue One as the ‘space monkey’ Bistan.

Stanislav Ianevski – Making his convention debut is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire actor Stanislav Ianevski. Hailing from Bulgaria, he played Quidditch expert Viktor Krum in the film. We know that everyone at SFW will make him very welcome!
