King Con will be the first of its kind in Durham City, and will boast a great city centre location for you to enjoy all the geeky things you love! With a Cosplay competition, Trading Card Game events, RPG Sessions, Talks from Celebrities and Specialists, interactive experiences, and heaps of traders, artists and things to tickle your eyeballs with pleasure. King Con is brought to Durham by Dark Matter Café.
If you are looking forward to King Con, you might also be interested in READ’s podcasts on Literature and the Fantastic, recorded earlier this year as part of Palace Green Library’s Robot! exhibition. From 27th September Palace Green Library also plays host to the exhibition Books for Boys: Heroism, Adventure & Empire at the Dawn of the First World War, co-curated by Professor Simon James, which explores boyhood during the earliest years of the twentieth century and the cultural environment that shaped a generation.
