So what exactly is Wyntercon VII?

This is our end of year fundraising showcase event. Managed by Wyntercon CIO, its purpose is to raise funds for, and awareness of, our activities and workshops that run throughout the year with support from our partners and sponsors. Regarded as one of the biggest family-friendly events on the south coast, it has fast become part of the local calendar.

" It doesn't matter what world you come from, you're welcome in ours. "

The event attracts thousands of people - families, cosplayers and traders. Not forgetting fantastic entertainers, actors, authors and even dinosaurs! No one's been eaten… yet, but one thing for certain you’ll find at Wyntercon is a bold and brilliant community from different backgrounds all under one roof.
