As 2017 draws to a close, it’s that time of the year when people reflect on their goals and achievements and plan their self development for the year ahead. More importantly, however, it’s time to start planning trips to conventions! Each year, more and more shows pop up and we’ve compiled a list of our favourites below – maybe this year is the year you go to that local convention you always see the signs for but never quite make it? Or a long weekend trip for a fierce cosplay battle and to see the demo of a long awaited game…?
