After the successful second Hi-Excomics convention held in Inverness on Valentine’s weekend this year, organisers Vicky Stonebridge and Rich Clements have been in touch to let us know that Hi-Ex will return in 2010.
After heavy snowfall prevented many making their way to the inaugural Hi-Ex in 2008 and a close call with the weather again this year, Vicky and Rich have decided to slip the convention to slightly later in the year. Hi-Ex 3 will take place on the weekend of 27/28 March 2010.
This means that Hi-Ex will remain the first British comics convention on the calendar (unless of course a new, young upstart appears on the scene). Since that weekend is also the start of British Summer Time in the UK in 2010, it means that the clocks will go forward on the Sunday morning – which should prove interesting for those recovering from the previous night’s hangover!
As with the previous two Hi-Exs, Hi-Ex 3 will take place in Eden Court on the banks of the River Ness, only a short walk from Inverness’ town centre and railway station. Guests will be announced closer to the time.
