Sci-Fi Scarborough 2020

Full Venue | Scarborough Spa

Following the government’s latest statement, Sci-Fi Scarborough will be cancelled for this year and return on the 17th and 18th of April 2021.

It was inevitable, but the safety and health of everybody involved with the event and of course yourselves is paramount, and in view of such a serious world health crisis the sensible thing to do is close down public gatherings and try to contain Covid-19 from spreading any further.

Tickets can be retained for SFS 2021 or you may obtain a refund from source of purchase.

Co-organiser Steve Dickinson "We have had no choice but to take this action, devastating as it is, the safety and health of the whole team and event attendees is more important than anything. We will be back".

SFS 2020 will be happening this Saturday 4th of April just not as you know it, or remember it, but it’s going down live on Facebook (www.facebook.com/scifiscarborough) and we are quickly prepping at our separate SFS isolation towers to bring you a day of SFS-like fun.

It won’t be easy as we are at the mercy of technology and broadband connections but I’m sure we can at least try to keep you entertained for a few hours during these difficult times.

So, in preparation, dig out your fave photos from the last six years SFS of you with guests, cosplayers and generally any that are downright crazy!

Finish your Cosplay as the Cosplay competition is going ahead in picture form, inventive backdrops get extra points!

Other features include a kids drawing competition, The Trader Out-Post where you can cast your eye over cool stuff and deal direct with the trader, links to fan films, live painting from a very fishy character, lunch break (we want to see some Sci-Fi related food!), an authors workshop, live guest panels from the Sixth Doctor Colin Baker, Davros himself Terry Molloy and the one and only Garrett Wang from Star Trek:Voyager live from Calgary in the U.S.A.

We also have Leeds/Bradford Starfleet with the new merchandise lines and mad raffle, performances from Gatling magic and Erwood the Jester plus of course the Geek Pub Quiz to finish with a few picture rounds to tax your memory with. Top this off with some excellent live music from Convention favorites Blues Harvest and we have a show.


The full and complete schedule will be up on Facebook Friday night so you can plan your day.

We do hope you are all ok, safe and coping with these strange times, see you Saturday for SFS 2020!
