The tenth annual outing for Eastbourne’s premier family event takes place in October 2023... WynterCon! The weekend-long event is a celebration of all things Fantasy, Science Fiction, Pop Culture, Creativity and more!

WynterCon is packed to the brim with activities the whole family can enjoy. It offers exhibits and photo opportunities, workshops, cosplay and creatives, including artists and published authors!

We’ve also curated a plethora of merchants to complement the event so you can pick up a memento or two to commemorate your visit.

This event raises money for Sky Creative Sussex (Registered Charity Number 1178076). The event's purpose is to raise funds for, and awareness of, the charity's activities and workshops that run throughout the year.

This event, like every WynterCon that has come before, is set to be the coolest, most awesome, and most memorable yet.

Book your tickets now and come discover what we mean!

Tickets are on sale via our website http://www.wyntercon.org/.

We look forward to seeing you in October and remember ‘It Doesn’t Matter What World You’re From, You’re Welcome In Ours’…
