Armadacon 2020

The Sci-Fi and Fantasy multi-media convention that's been running in Plymouth since 1988


Other conventions tend to be focused on one medium or one subject within that medium. Armadacon believes this format is restrictive, and most fans like more than one type of medium irrespective of the subject matter. Many modern conventions have become very commercialised. They're slickly presented and well-polished events. This type of convention is now considered the norm. Fans go to these conventions to be entertained by the guests. ArmadaCon is completely different; most attendees come to entertain each other!

Taking place at Future Inn Plymouth between 4th-6th November 2020.

You can expect:

  • Charitable auction
  • Guest panels
  • Masquerade
  • Post con meal
  • Quizzes and games
  • Radio plays
  • Tabletop gaming
  • Roleplay games (RPG)
  • Turkey readings
