2016 has been a mindfuck, but we can turn this thing around in 2017. Comic and anime conventions are a pageant, an emporium, immersive theatre, a holiday. A place to share, witness and learn. Whether you come as a participant, observer or a little bit of both, comic and anime cons play an underrated role in bolstering the spirit. When you head to a great convention, you’re reminded that it’s okay. People at cons tend to be good to each other (but let’s respect personal space and go easy on the yaoi paddle). Cons really can foster an inclusive, feminist environment where you can have some fun, dammit. Because it helps to remember that things in the world are good. There is always the light.

Here’s our pick of comic and anime conventions in UK and Ireland in 2017. We’re adding to the list all the time, and we don’t want to pretend that the rest of the world doesn’t exist, either. If you know of a convention we should add to the list, contact us via the email address on our submission guidelines and we’ll get right on it.
