If you want to know more of what to expect this year, tune in to our soundcloud for a conversation between Brian and John. It’s part one of three, so keep an eye out for the rest in the next few days!
10 days to go and our official schedule is up for viewing! There may still be some last minute additions, but we wanted you guys to have an idea what we’ve been working so hard to put together!
And did we mention it’s free? Well, almost all free. The final event on Saturday night will have a €5 entry fee, but all proceeds will go towards keeping next year free as well. Everything else for the weekend will be free entry.
But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t bring your wallet, because we’ve got a great line up of vendors this year: everything from books to comics to figurines to hats and scarves!
So come on out to see us! Doors will open at 11 am!
Irish fantasy author Ruth Francis Long, also known as RF Long, has just been confirmed as a guest at this year’s WexWorlds!
She’s a writer of sword and sorcery, urban fantasy, paranormal romance for adults and young adults. And just last year she won The European Science Fiction Society Spirit of Dedication Award For Best Author of Children’s Science Fiction and Fantasy
Her young adult novels include A Treachery of Beautiful Things, A Crack in Everything and its sequel, A Hollow in the Hills.
Her adult novels include The Tales of the Hotlands Series, The Mirror of Her Power, Soul Fire, and The Scroll Thief.
If you’re looking for angels, demons, and folklore spun into a tale alongside modern day Dublin, or trees that swallow people whole, come listen to her talk at 2 pm on Saturday in our Battlestar Galactica Suite with signings to follow.
This year we are proud to announced that Star Wars mega-fan Kevin Weaver will be returning to share his thoughts on everything in the Star Wars Universe. Oh, and did we mention that he’s bringing his kick ass collection with him?
So come along and join us as we take a deep dive into the world of Star Wars!
Just 23 days to go until WexWorlds 2016! There is going to be a lot of information coming your way as we solidify our plans for the weekend.
Want a sneak peak?
We also have vendors signing up to sell their wares! We have Ed’s Comic Hut coming down from Enniscorthy, Reader’s Paradise from here in Town, as well as multiple crafters selling their handmade creations!
Confirmed for Saturday night will be an original one-act Star Trek Universe play written and directed by one of Wexford’s own.
And on Sunday, you ask?
Sunday will be a host of gaming! We’ll have consoles, board games, and card games. There will be Warhammer workshops and Yu-Gi-Oh and Magic tournaments for card gaming, retro and recent gaming consoles, and more board games than you knew existed. One hasn’t even been released yet, so come and learn to play from the creators!
Alongside all of this, we will be showing various movies and episodes in our Cantina Cinema, so if you want to take a break, grab yourself a snack and kick back to enjoy some of our favorites!
We’re down to five weeks until WexWorlds 2016 opens its doors and we thought we would celebrate the countdown with a shiny new website! We will post our updates as things get finalized to give you an idea of what to look forward to!
We’re looking forward to hearing your thoughts as well, so feel free to leave a comment either here or on our Facebook page!
