The weekend of the 8th & 9th of April is taken care of as Sci-Fi Scarborough once again invites you all to geek beside the seaside as the unconventional convention returns for the fourth consecutive year in the quirky quarter mile that is the beautiful Victorian Scarborough Spa. A large venue with more than enough room for everyone to wander freely, great for families and those with disabilities, with easy access throughout.
