So you guys know how much I love doing the Sci-Fi Weekender (SFW) events right? I’ve been going to and a covering the weekenders since 2013 and I haven’t missed one since, well except for this year where I only did a day rather than a full weekend!

So you can imagine the excitement that the Pwllheli event isn’t far off, but today I also got sent the news of SFW in the City an event that has certainly grabbed my attention.

For eight 21st century years, Chic Festivals has guided and organised the ever-popular Sci-Fi & Fantasy Weekender: a packed weekend of entertainment, guests, films and partying all set in the magical surroundings of North Wales. Now the team are turning Metropolitan and bringing the show to the City of Steel!

In 2017, stand by for SFW In The City! All the fun, fandoms, and vibrant experience of the legendary Weekender crammed into three zones over two days, plugged right into the heart of the UK: Sheffield.

Very much like the Pwllheli event in March, fans of SciFi will be able to geek out and join the SFW team for stars, experts, and genre guests; for fascinating panels; for films, music and entertainment; for gaming, books and cosplay.

I can only imagine that there is going to be so much geekery and adventure going on that the weekend is going to be packed to the Nacelle’s with so much entertainment that you’re going to need much bigger warp coils to cram everything in!

Blazing Minds has been told by the SFW team that the O2 Academy in Sheffield has been booked for 7th and 8th October 2017 … and the schedule is being packed with Authors, Panels, Gaming, Comics, Artists, Quizzes, Props, Costumes, Plays and much, much more  and all for a bargain entry price! Each day is been planned to be unique, with different guests attending and different activities taking place, so it’s going to keep attendees busy and engaged for the whole time!

So what are you waiting for folks, the time is right for you to grab you cosplay gear, embrace you geekiness and join Chic Festivals, Telos Publishing, Area 51 and SciFi London as they present the greatest show on Earth (and quite probably off it) at SFW In The City!

Fancy a little taste of SFW in the City?
