Welcome to Novacon

Novacon is the UK's longest-established regional science fiction convention, held every autumn since 1971. It's built around a single-stream programme mixing both literary items and more informal events, with deliberate emphasis on social contact between sf fans and genre professionals.

Novacon follows a long tradition of SF conventions held in the UK since the late 1930s. Back in those days it was a proud and lonely thing to be an SF fan and the main source of their interest was the written word.

So at Novacon you won't find people dressed up as a Dalek or Darth Vader but you will find:

  • SF authors, many of whom have come up through the ranks of SF fandom.
  • A dealers room where you can find a wide selection of new fiction, second hand books and collectable books, books about sf and even graphic novels.
  • A bar filled with like minded people happy to chat for hours about anything under the sun even Science Fiction.
  • Serious science talks from professionals who know what they are talking about.
  • An Art Show featuring original work by both professional and amateur artists. Many of the works shown are available to buy.
