EM-Con’s first year! and it promises to be a great one, We’re trying to do something a little different, we’re going to bring some Sci-fi and Fantasy magic to the Midlands! Our venue is based in the middle of the city of Nottingham, just a short 2 minute walk from the Market Square at the Albert Hall.
Our hope is to bring together some of the best talent from the Sci-Fi and Fantasy genre and deliver it to you, we won’t hide away the personalities in rooms you cant get into and we won’t put them away in a corridor you’ll have to wait 2 hours to get into.
We’ll have Stormtroopers and Daleks, and hopefully something else a little special, so why not get your photo taken with them for free!
If you’re after a gift we’ll have over 30 vendors with some amazing items on the day, custom items, and even artists from your favourite comics.
Our list of confirmed guests is continuous so check back to see who we’ve got! So far…

You get the chance to meet guests up close and personal. We let you have the chance to either get a picture of your choice signed or even a personal item such as a poster or action figure. Don’t be scared when meeting the guests, they don’t bite!
On the day we’ll be having timed photoshoots with the guests of EM-Con, the times for these will be posted closer to the event, so why not get your photo taken professionally with your favourite personality?
These are a small charge but you’ll get an A4 print of you and your chosen guest.
Q&A / Talk sessions
The best way to get involved during the day is at one of our Q&A sessions, these take place in the grand hall which is the perfect location for listening and asking questions to your favourite cast members.
Our roving microphones will be on hand to get any questions you might have and it will all be hosted by our compère.
We’ve scoured throughout the UK and Europe to bring you the best it has to offer with vendors and exhibitors, we’re also pleased to announce that there will be exhibitions of paraphernalia to see and have your photo taken with, for free!
We’ll end the day with an awesome party this might mean a few sneaky sherbuts to a full on session! we have 2 great local bands chose to get everything bouncing. It is a chance for the fans and everyone involved to wind down and enjoy the end of the day, there might even be the odd recognisable face.
