We are very delighted to announce that the convention was a resounding success! All the guest artists did a fantastic job throughout the weekend, and everyone had a wonderful time. We have added up the profits now that the dust has settled, and are very pleased to announce that we were able to raise close to £10,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust!
