Start planning your Bournemouth visit now!

What makes our Conventions such a success is the interaction of everyone who comes. It’s a great time to socialise, eat, drink, meet up with old friends and make new ones too. If it’s going to be your first time at Convention, you can be sure of a warm welcome. 

Convention is more than just about contests, there are plenty of activities to get involved with including workshops, tag sessions, a great show, the legendary afterglows and much more. And there’ll be plenty of opportunity to sing throughout the weekend.
