About the Convention:
Welcome, fellow Geeks!
Are you a fan of anime, comic books, sci-fi or video games?
Are you an uber-geek who loves it all?
Then we have the ultimate, fun-packed weekend for you.
Yorkshire Cosplay Con is a huge, family-friendly convention blossoming in the heart of Sheffield Arena. Cosplay (short for ‘Costume Play’) is for everyone; from children in fancy dress, to adults who want to embrace their alter-ego. From professional costumers to handcrafted costumes, you are likely to see a whole array of wonderful characters which wouldn’t be possible anywhere else. You don’t have to cosplay, of course. But once you’ve been, you’ll be planning who to come as next year!
As well as meeting the famous stars of TV shows and Movies, the event has a schedule packed with live stage performances, plus a wide range of activities suitable for the entire family, including workshops, card and video gaming events, roleplay games. At Yorkshire Cosplay Con we pride ourselves on being the ultimate family day out, so bring along the kids for free face painting and balloon modeling. Children will even get a chance to show off their own outfits in our kids’ cosplay competition.
There’s never been so much fun in one place as characters from your favourite popular culture niches come to life around you, making for the most amazing photo opportunities with the props from your favourite shows. What’s better than dressing as your favourite Doctor and having your photo taken with the T.A.R.D.I.S.?
Yorkshire Cosplay Con is now seven years old, and we’ll be celebrating Summer 2017 at Sheffield Arena with the biggest and best event yet! From humble beginnings, bringing together like-minded people, YCC has grown to be one of the largest, most popular, events in the geek-calendar.
So, join us in June for Yorkshire Cosplay Con 2017!
Prices start from only £9.00 for adults and £7.00 for children. Tickets are available in person at the Sheffield Arena Box Office, by phone on: 0114 256 5656 and online at www.sheffieldarena.co.uk
