Slayers24 RAGNARÖQ?

Ragnarök

the final destruction of the world in the conflict between the Aesir and the powers of Hel led by Loki — called also Twilight of the Gods.

Merriam-Webster

Join us for the final Slayers24 of this academic season, and the last before Q-Con. Additionally, in the true spirit of Ragnarök, this is the last Slayers24 to ever be held before the destruction of the Queen’s Students Union Building by the powers of QUB. The future of Slayers24s are unknown at this point but, hopefully, like in Norse mythology, they can be resurrected again!

The event takes place beginning on Saturday, May 12th from 10am. Be prepared for another fun filled night of gaming and anime! Console gaming, PC Gaming and eSports, Tabletop games, Anime Screenings and our wide range of events and tournaments on offer!

Q-Con-XXV

Q-Con XXV Has Launched

Q-Con, the UK & Ireland’s greatest weekend of gaming and anime entertainment, has officially launched for 2018 with this year’s event set to take place on June 22nd – 24th.

Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, Q-Con takes place annually in Queen’s University Belfast Students’ Union, and is a weekend long celebration of everything gaming and anime related, from eSports and Tabletop, to Cosplay and Movie Screens. Major events already confirmed to make a welcome comeback in 2018 include our Cosplay Extravaganza, Q-Comedy Show, our Saturday night pub quiz, 100s of Gaming Tournaments, Club Q-Con across two floors, and much more to be announced!

As always Q-Con’s award-winning roster of gaming competitions will be back with a bang, including a weekend-long League of Legends tournament, dozens of console tournaments from open to close every day, a huge timetable of traditional, tabletop and board gaming tournaments and lots more.

Anime fans can be the centre of attention again with a number of cosplay competitions planned, complementing our timetable of panels, workshops, screenings and unique events that won’t be found anywhere else!

This year’s Q-Con will be our most exciting yet – we have a host of new ideas and are working hard to implement them. Keep an eye out as we release more details in the coming months!-Ben Harrison, Q-Con’s Managing Director

 

Expect Q-Con’s trade hall and artists’ alley to be once again packed with everything you’ll need to make your weekend a memorable one, including Replay Games and many more – a full list will be confirmed as the weekend draws near. Our immensely popular indie game developers area will be soon accepting applications – this will be announced in due course.

Last year over 6,500 attendees packed the Students’ Union building as well as the nearby Elmwood Hall and South Dining Hall. Once again, the event is expected to be a sell-out and attendees are encouraged to pre-register online to avoid disappointment. Pre-registration for Q-Con XXV is online now.

 

Information on special guests, new events, accommodation options and more will be released in the coming weeks. In the meantime, get involved on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and don’t forget to mark yourself as going on our Facebook events page!
