Fantasticon is described as:
the annual action-packed interactive Hull weekend with VR/gaming/cosplay/NERF/live music and FREE SOFT DRINKS & BISCUITS! This year it is dedicated to nurse Liz Sneddon who died recently.
This year's convention will be dedicated to the memory of Liz Sneddon. Liz recently lost her battle with cancer (her fourth battle in 20 years) and will always be remembered by the team for her energy, her beaming smile and the look of pride as her nephew David (famous E:D Commander Selezen Lake and creator of the much anticipated Elite: Encounters RPG) had his hair shaved off live at the event to support her charity, Marie Curie. This was at FantastiCon back in 2015.
