The sleepy seaside resort town of Eastbourne on Britain’s south coast is preparing for an invasion; an invasion of horror movie stars, Doctor Who monsters, superhero cosplayers, comic book artists, celebrity guests, cult movie screenings and an army of genre fans, geeks and geekesses! They will all be heading to Eastbourne to take part in Wyntercon 2014, a massive multi-genre convention which encompasses horror, sci-fi, fantasy, superheroes, comics and more over three days from Friday 31st October – Sunday 2nd November.
As well as all the merchandise stalls, panels, celebrity signings, Laser Quest and cosplay taking place during the daytime, there are some pretty awesome events happening on Friday and Saturday evenings as Wyntercon takes over the whole town! On Friday night you won’t want to miss the Halloween Masquerade Ball on Eastbourne Pier! Saturday evening Wyntercon takes over the entire three-screen independent Curzon Cinema with a slew of cult movie screenings including Blade Runner, Dark Crystal, classic horror and brand new sci-fi shocker Hungerford! There will also be an alternative music night featuring live bands and DJ and free entry to the local TJ’s Nightclub!
Special guests over the three days include Francoise Pascal, Dani Thompson, Cyberschizoid, Dez Skinn, Titan Defender Pushka, Virginia Hey, Fragments of Fear, Space Monsters Magazine, Billy Chainsaw, Jason Wright, Jonathan Glendening and tons more from the worlds of film, television, comics, special effects, books, artists and publishing!
