From the sublime to the intentionally ridiculous, we’ll once again be welcoming cosplayers of any level and ability to our cosplay zone and to take part in our cosplay masquerade. With top prizes on offer, don’t miss the chance to showcase your creativity and costumes live on Stage.

Combining ‘Costume and Play’; get involved with interactive shows breathing life into the biggest fictional characters from the worlds of gaming and pop-culture.We’ll feature workshops throughout the weekend explaining the techniques you’ve learnt through our stage epics.
