Em-Con 2018

2018 was the 3rd year running that I attended Em-Con in Nottingham - a geek filled con held at the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham.
I consider myself to be a Sci-Fi loving geek with a particular interest in Doctor Who but the fact is, I love any Sci-Fi themed content and I'm happy to report that my boys seem to be following in my path as they love attending the con too!

Em-Con really has gone from strength to strength and after the disastrous first event (the venue was over booked and we didn't even get entry on the day...) they really have pulled off a great event which gets better year on year. 2018 was the best year yet, although there was a distinct lack of Doctors this year - but we had some great assistants so I'm not complaining!

My youngest son was obsessed with the themed Lego and he scoured every stand for just the right characters. I also had my first ever official photo shoot this year with Emma Caulfield (aka Anya from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) so that was a clear highlight for me. 
The price of the event is perfect and we got a family ticket for £25 which was well worth it. We saw so many famous guests up close and we spent quite a bit of time just admiring the Cosplayers who really do take the event up a notch.
I can't wait for the 2019 event and of course, I always have a Tardis selfie with the boys so this will become a staple in our family album now!
