Sci-fi, fantasy, comics, games and all that stuff

Get involved

You can support us just by coming along to OH!CON. This year it’ll be on Saturday 12 October.

Want more?

If you want to be more involved, you can join the OH!CON Fellowship - we meet throughout the year to talk about OH!CON, plan the day and discuss all manner of nerdy stuff. Contact us.

Bursting with ideas?

Got an idea for something that you think would fit right in at OH!CON? Get in touch and tell us about it!

Not sure that your idea would be right? Here is the sort of thing we’re looking for:

  • We’re interested in anything that is broadly sci-fi, fantasy, comics, games or nerd-related.
  • Talks, workshops, displays, demonstrations and general nerdery all work well at OH!CON
  • Smaller ideas are usually easier to do, but if you are thinking bigger it still may be possible - it might just need more planning to pull off. In general, the grander your idea, the sooner you should get in touch with us.
  • The day is mostly aimed at a family audience, but we’re interested in ideas suitable for adults too.
  • It helps enormously if you have already thought about how your idea will work - who it is for, how many people would be needed to run it, how much space it’d take up, if it needs wifi, power sockets or any other equipment, and so on. Don’t worry if you don’t have all the details worked out - we’ll try to help.
  • Don’t be afraid to surprise us. If your idea doesn’t quite fit into the above, why not fly it by us anyway? We quite like surprises.

On the day

We’ll also be looking for volunteers to help us run OH!CON on the day - stewards, workshop and talk facilitators, droid wranglers and more. There’ll be more details about the specific volunteer roles later in the year, but if you’re over 16 and keen to be part of the event, contact us.
