Just two words can mean a number of things to many different people. It can be the Fort William Comic Con, The Highlands Comic Con, the Fort William Convention or that crazy event that people just don’t really understand. However they can all be expressed with just two words; Fort Con.
Fort Con is a convention in Fort William. If you’re not sure where Fort William is then look for the highest mountain in the UK, Ben Nevis. Fort William is the settlement surrounding Ben Nevis, right slap bang in the middle of the Scottish Highlands.
The convention is a celebration of pop culture including comics, cosplay, films, books, music and more. Really just an excuse to let your hair down (or put it up) and have fun with other like-minded people. The inaugural Fort Con in October 2016 was met with a turnout of 1300 people which was thrilling to see.
The Fort Con event is now run by The 57th Parallel, a Highland based events and promotions company. This means that the future of the Fort William convention is in safe hands! Fort Con is and always will be for a community within the Highlands who have to travel a hundred miles or more to find something similar.
Fort Con 2 is coming and there is some amazing news coming this way soon! Keep your eyes peeled.
