WynterCon: Award-winning comic con to be hosted at East Sussex College!

WynterCon: Award-winning comic con to be hosted at East Sussex College!

WynterCon, the largest comic con in Sussex, is back, with a new town and a new venue. Promethean Promotions presents WynterCon XI, coming on 21st and 22nd September 2024, at East Sussex College’s Hastings campus!

After entertaining thousands of guests over the past decade at the Winter Garden in Eastbourne, WynterCon will be moving to East Sussex College’s Hastings Station Plaza campus for the most exciting event yet.

Featuring full-sized movie props, animatronics, authors and artists, vendors, cosplay competitions, gaming, photo opportunities, always-popular education workshops, and stars from stage and screen, there’s plenty to do for the whole family.

Event Founder, Andy Kybett, said: “WynterCon’s motto when the first-ever event launched back in 2013 was 'It doesn't matter what world you come from, you're welcome in ours’, and it’s just as relevant - if not more so - today. I’m extremely grateful to East Sussex College for the opportunity to promote this message of inclusivity on a larger scale, and my team and I promise to stage an event that will not only do this magnificent venue justice but raise much-needed funds for a very worthy charity.”

Further information regarding the event, including details of the cosplay competition and special guests, will be released on WynterCon’s website, Facebook and Instagram accounts, so be sure to check back regularly for more details. Given the location of this new venue and the substantial interest from college students, the demand for tickets is expected to be extremely high, so it is recommend that you purchase early to avoid the disappointment of being turned away. Tickets for WynterCon XI can be purchased here!

The event aims to raise funds and awareness for Sky Creative Sussex. Sky Creative Sussex (Registered Charity Number 1178076) is an award-winning Arts and Education charity that champions eco-awareness and inclusivity. For more information on their mission or to help raise funds, click here.
