Swansea Comic and Gaming Convention Returns in May

Swansea Comic and Gaming Convention LogoThe second Swansea Comic and Gaming Convention takes place at the Brangwyn Hall, Swansea on 27th May 2017.

A “convention for the community by the community”, the event was founded by prominent members of the local geek community, who wanted to give a little back to their supporters.

Held for the first time in 2016, SCGC incorporates various aspects of geek fandom into the convention, including (but not limited to) comics, table-top and board gaming, cosplay and video gaming.
