On Saturday, I hosted the second Burton Sci-Fi and Fantasy Con event at my local library.
Yet again, the event was a huge success, and this year was far bigger than last, with more to see and do. We also had more people in through the door, despite the ominous approach of Storm Dennis!
We had our usual round up of science-fiction, fantasy, and horror authors, along with the addition of comic book artist Paul McCaffrey. We had Japanese toys from Everything Kawaii, fantasy and creepy-cute art from Orangefruitcake Art and Rowen Elizabeth Art, and Harry Potter merchandise from Goblin Wood.
Blue Rose Crafts offered wand painting workshops, while our daring visitors tried their hand at Dungeons and Dragons, overseen by our Dungeon Master, Bruce. The younger visitors played Lego and made their own superhero masks.
Roger Hathaway Photography was putting people into fantasy worlds with his green screen, and East Midlands Garrison brought half a Star Wars movie cast. We also saw the return of The Dark Knight and Harry Potter actor, Martin Ballantyne.
A huge thank you to everyone who supported this event, and made it possible: Burton-on-Trent Library staff, all of my wonderful traders, and our fantastic visitors.
