In 2017 a new anime and gaming convention burst onto the scene in London. Recognising that anime and gaming fans needed more opportunities to get together, SenpaiCon was born!
Since day one SenpaiCon has been focused on the social side of fandom, and is all about giving people a chance to have fun together with people who share their interests. It’s an event by the community for the community. Activities like karaoke, video game tournaments and jenga competitions are a key part of SenpaiCon, but at the end of the day it’s all all about meeting people and having a good time.
SenpaiCon has been free to attend since the start, and we wanted to keep it free for as long as possible. So after running a series of popular events throughout 2017 and early 2018, SenpaiCon eventually ran out of money.
We want SenpaiCon to stay free to attend so instead of charging entry to the event, we’re running a crowdfunder. That way people can contribute what they can afford, and the event can stay open for everyone from the community. If we manage to raise more than what is required to run another event, we will invest the remaining money in improving the event with better equipment and more things to do.
We have a number of fun rewards for people who contribute £5 or more, and exciting stretch goals once we reach our funding target. Please contribute what you can and help make the next SenpaiCon happen!
-- We're working towards Saturday 19 January as the date for the next SenpaiCon, TBC! --
