Capital Sci-Fi Con

About Capital Sci-Fi Con

Scotland’s much-loved Capital Sci-Fi Con is set to return for a sixth year on Saturday 13th March 2021 and will be held virtually for the very first time, attracting audiences across the globe.

The hugely popular pop culture, comic and movie convention is usually held over three days at Edinburgh Corn Exchange, with all proceeds going directly to Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS).

Undeterred by the fact a physical event would not be possible this year due to the ongoing pandemic, organiser and superhero fundraiser Keith Armour decided to run a virtual version instead.

Tickets to the convention itself cost £3, offering fans online access for the full day. CHAS also plans to host a ‘Week of Geek’ in the run up to the event, with exclusive tickets to exciting attractions such as Ghostbusters and Disney star panel talks at an additional cost.

A live auction and raffle will run alongside the event with a selection of sought-after prizes from stars such as multi-award winning actress Emma Thompson and Sabrina the Teenage Witch actress, Melissa Joan Hart.

We look forward to having you join us and as always all the proceeds will be going to our chosen charity CHAS (Children's Hospices Across Scotland)

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Capital Sci-Fi Con are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
