Wyntercon Ethos

Hello, we are Wyntercon.  We are a not-for-profit Charitable incorporated organisation that supports and encourages those from under-privileged backgrounds and helping them thrive within the creative media sector and be part of their local community.

At Wyntercon, we are more than an annual convention.  We are passionate about community and shared values.  Inclusion, family are all fundamental to our vision for the local area and beyond.

We are passionate about providing the platform people need to discover their creative passions, giving everybody the confidence to express their creative flair through the world of Science Fiction & fantasy.

We strive to provide creative workshops that spark the imagination for all. It doesn’t matter what world you come, regardless of age gender or ability, your welcome in ours.

We also aim to provide a professional springboard.  Local artists, we recognise your struggle for recognition in the industry, we know you require support.  We can provide you with networking opportunities and guidance on career development.

Our tireless work has been recognized by the local business community. In 2016, Wyntercon was awarded the Hospitality, Tourism and Leisure Award and in 2017, Wyntercon was presented with the Equality and Inclusion Embrace Award.

Our Annual Showcase event held in Princes Park, Eastbourne is regarded as one of the biggest family-friendly convention events of  on the South Coast and is fast becoming entrenched in the local community calendar.  Last year, there was a record turnout at Princes Park to mark its fourth edition. Nearly 3,500 people attended the event alongside a record 91 traders and exhibitors, selling a wide range of artistic, handmade original products.

Support from the community and local businesses is really appreciated and is crucial to our continued success, so thank you so much.

See you in September!
