Swansea Comic and Gaming Convention New Date
Although we hadn't reported on the initial communication from the organisers of this year's SCGC, we decided to wait until we had further details from them and below is the latest.
However, we must stress, at this stage we are keeping our place at the event, the next few weeks is critical and we will confirm our situation as soon as we can... The last couple of weeks and the announcement of the COVID-19 virus has almost killed our business - we can only hope that it doesn't destroy what's left (and we also want to support other small / local businesses who are in a similar situation).
"Yesterday we had to break the unfortunate news that we were postponing SCGC2020. it was a hard decision to make especially this close to the convention, but due to the guidance from the government it was not feasible to run the event. The aim of Swansea Comic and Gaming Convention is to provide the community with a safe and fun geeky day out, but in the current climate we couldn’t guarantee the safety of our attendees, traders, guests and our volunteers and the safety of everyone attending the convention must come first.
Today we have a some better news, after speaking to the venue we have been able to secure an alternative date. We are happy to announce that SCGC will now take place at the Brangwyn Hall Swansea on Saturday the 8th of August. So mark your Diary’s and join us for a day at our new summer date a stones throw from the beach!
As we said yesterday tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled event, and trader bookings will automatically be transferred to the new date.
If this new date means that you won't be able to attend the rescheduled event because of a clash or prior engagement, then we'll happily offer you a refund whether you're a vendor or a ticket holder."
