Capital Sci-Fi Con

About Capital Sci-Fi Con

Capital Sci-Fi Con 2018, Edinburgh’s not-for-profit pop culture, comic and movie convention returns to the capital for the third year (3-4 February 2018) with a new home of the Edinburgh Corn Exchange.

All profits from the event will be donated to Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS), Scotland’s national children’s hospice service which cares for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions.

Organised for fans by fans, 2017’s event attracted over 7,000 fans from across the UK and raised an incredible £75,150.68 for CHAS.

2018 is set to be the biggest year yet, with guests appearances confirmed from the seventh Dr Who, Sylvester McCoy, and his companion, Sophie Aldred and Jeremy Bulloch, who played Boba Fett in the Star Wars films – with more announcements to be made. The Dr Who Tardis and Star Wars Speeder Bike film props are back by popular demand along with the addition of the Star Wars Wampa Cave, Landspeeder and Droids displays and a fully interactive Walking Dead season three prison set and season one cafeteria set, to name just a few.

Also back by popular demand is Meal with the Stars, which was a highlight of Capital Sci-Fi Con 2016. It offers super fans the chance to dine with Capital Sci-Fi Con star guests on Saturday 3 February, enjoy a three course meal prepared by Saltire Hospitality and access to a full bar and entry to the after party. 10 tables with 10 seats per table are available and going fast! Don’t miss this opportunity to geek out with your favourite film and TV stars!

A Superhero room, retro gaming room and over 100 stalls selling specialist items will also be back, along with the weekends highly anticipated cosplay competition.
