Welcome to BristolCon.org

BristolCon is a one-day science fiction and fantasy convention organized by the BristolCon Committee. The primary aim of the event is to support the Science Fiction and Fantasy community within the South West of the United Kingdom, and to promote the works of Science Fiction and Fantasy authors, artists, businesses, and performers within the United Kingdom and further afield. The convention was created in 2009 by members of the Bristol Fantasy & SF Society, and has since become renowned as a fun, friendly, and informative addition to the UK’s convention calendar.

Each year we feature panel discussions and lectures, an art show, and small group sessions including kaffeeklatsch and workshops. Books, comics and merchandise are available in the dealers’ room and authors will be available for book signings. Since 2021 BristolCon has become a hybrid event offering both online and in-person attendance.

Funds from this event are made available to the BristolCon Foundation to be awarded as grants to those within the community who apply for financial assistance or support. Please contact chair(at)bristolcon(dot)org for further details.
