Welcome to HotaruCon!

Prepare yourself! HotaruCon is an anime and Japanese culture convention in Milton Keynes celebrating all things anime culture, creativity and community in fandom.

We're a 3-day weekend-long event held from the 4th-6th of November at the Jurys Inn Milton Keynes and you can find out more about the venue below. But what can you expect to find at HotaruCon?

The events schedule will be packed with all your favourites. Including convention staples like the Masquerade Cosplay Showcase, Dealers Hall, Artists Alley, Bring and Buy, Games room, Karoake, Parties, Cosplay Ball. Plus a many and varied selection of panels and workshops running from morning till night. There's always something to do and someone new to meet. Whether you're a convention veteran or new to the community and you want to know more check out the About the Event page.

To attend HotaruCon you'll need to register for a ticket. Your ticket covers the full three days of the event. Included in your ticket are a personalised members badge (you'll need to think of a 15 character name for yourself), lanyard, events schedule and conbag.

We're invested in showcasing all the talent and creativity the anime and manga fandom has to offer, whether you want to host a panel, sell your creations or perform on stage. All of which is included in the price of your ticket and there's even opportunities to add to your lanyard collection of collectible badges for participating in certain convention events. If that sounds like you, head to Get Involved on the menu.
