What is AmeCon?
AmeCon is the UK's largest residential convention dedicated to the celebration of Japanese Animation and Comics, and the community that these media bring together. We try to be a little bit country, and a little bit rock'n'roll - well, maybe a lot rock'n'roll, but that's beside the point.
The weekend-long timetable is chock-full of attendee-run events providing new insights, or alternative viewpoints, on a variety of related subjects. Either way, they are a great way to meet likeminded people who love the same things you do.
Our infamous nightly parties provide ample opportunity to kick back and get your groove on with friends, old and new. Folks coming to AmeCon might only see each other once or twice a year, so we do everything we can to make it a weekend to remember!
Above all else, AmeCon is an event that is run by fans, for fans, and would be nothing without the fans. Every penny AmeCon receives goes into making the event that bit more special for the hundreds of attendees who return year on year. If you want to know more about AmeCon, have a poke about the site or the forum, or drop us an email!

On Saturday evening the Students Union will be playing host to our epic catwalk, come along and watch the Parade.
This is a chance for anyone in cosplay to strut their stuff in front of the assembled hordes. If you have a costume you think needs to be seen by a dedicated audience, then this is the event for you!
The catwalk passes through several rooms and ends on the main stage, allowing lots of opportunities for cool posing and plenty of photo opportunities. It’s open to individuals and groups of up to three cosplayers.
