SUNNYCON ANIME EXPO
SunnyCon Anime Expo is a annual event celebrating Japanese culture and anime. We are not like the usual comic con type event which you see more and more of these days. Starting out at the now demolished Crowtree leisure centre in Sunderland the event has grown to St James Park and attracts over 4000 for one weekend in June. The event incorporates more than just anime and Japanese culture with video gaming, table top gaming, crafts, cosplay and special industry guests, expert panels and a traders hall with a wide variety of over 100 traders and artists. We have become one of
the biggest and most recognised events in the whole country and planning is already underway for 2017 with big name voice actors from the Pokemon series already booked for their first UK appearance and we're looking to increase attendance to 6000.
