Back for a fourth year in 2013, the The Sci-fi Weekender (formerly the SFX Weekender) promises the ultimate sci-fi experience. It's a festival of fun and activities for people who love science fiction and fantasy
The Sci-fi Weekender is packed with activities for fans: big-name guests, interviews, Q&A sessions, movie screenings, comic workshops, videogaming, music, book readings and plenty more. It's all about bringing like-minded people together for a weekend structured around four pillar events: the entertaining Imaginarium cabaret, the sweeping Maskerade party (with awesome DJing from Craig Charles), and the fiendish Blastermind pub quiz.
The Sci-fi Weekender attendees will get the chance to fully immerse themselves in sci-fi culture. Fans can discover how comics are made, discuss burning issues with their favourite author, or be among the first to see exclusive screenings of films and TV shows. There are also many autograph opportunities: the full line-up will be revealed over the coming months. Above all, though, it's a chance to hang out with like-minded people and enjoy a few drinks in a safe environment with other fans.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
