    So, we're all done finished for the event. Massive thankyou to our hard working crew and all of you guys who attended. A total of 3,190 of you attended - breaking that 3,000 mark for the first time ever. Not just that, but we raised over 1,200 for charity - thank you all that gave generously - all of which shall go in memory of Becca Moriarty to Epilepsy Action.

    Summer LAGC this 1-3 July - Big Changes Coming!

    We're pleased to confirm that our next LAGC will be a special THREE DAY event this 1-3 July - and we shall be aiming to make that one even bigger (big plans in store - stay tuned!). It shall be our first ever full three day event, with the Friday opening for a preview day at midday. For the first time ever, Saturday and Sunday shall also open at 10am for pre-paids (11am for those on the door), giving those who pre-pay more incentive to pay in advance.

    Go register for that now @ http://www.londonanimecon.com

    We have lost someone very dear and important to us. Earlier this week our head of press and guests Becca Moriarty was found tragically passed away after having an epileptic seizure in her flat. Becca was just 24 years of age and had her entire life in front of her - what happened was devastatingly without reason and utterly unexpected.

    As a community we must come together and be strong. It is the only way that we can handle this devastating loss. London Anime & Gaming Con is next weekend, where most of Becca's friends and colleagues will be attending. We would like to address what we shall be doing -

    We would like to talk about this first at our Opening Ceremony on the Friday at 7pm. While not everyone knew Becca, we feel it is important the event as a whole knows what has happened, which is very important. A book will then be put out at the registrations desk that anyone who knew Becca can write in and express their thoughts, memories and sorrows which we will give to her family.

    On the Sunday, we will be holding a private Memorial Service in the downstairs backroom (the anime that is normally shown there will be cancelled). This will take place at Sunday 1pm and last for about an hour, possibly longer. Anyone who knew or who was friends with Becca is invited. We would like this to be a space for people to express their feelings and thoughts and to pay tribute to her memory.

    Everyone mourns in their own way, but we request that it is done with respect for Becca's wishes. Becca would not have wanted people to have let what has happened spoil people's time and enjoyment. She would want everyone to enjoy the event and for mourning to be with a calm-dignified sadness and sorrow, not with despair. Some people will understandably struggle, but we will try our best to help them through this so that this is done the way Becca would have wanted.

    Epilepsy is a terrible condition, with over 600,000 people in the UK alone suffering from it. For 2016 our official charity for all of our conventions, including Alcon will be Epilepsy Action. We would like to try and raise as much money as possible toward this to honour Becca's memory, as well as help make future tragedies less likely. If you wish to donate in the meantime you can do so here.

    Becca is forever in our thoughts. She was someone who was genuinely selfless and wanted to help everyone. She added heart, kindness, empathy and loyalty to a community and to a world that desperately needs it. She changed many of us for the better. We will do what we can to honour her memory, to celebrate the good times, and to carry on what she stood for.

    We will never forget her.

    What we're going to say will be deeply tragic and upsetting to those who are not yet aware. Earlier this week our staff member and head of press and guests, Becca Moriarty was found passed away after having a seizure in her flat. She suffered from epilepsy and it was a completely unexpected tragedy.

    Becca was a friend to many of us. She was one of those people who was genuinely selfless and wanted to help others. She added heart, kindness, empathy and loyalty to a community and to a world that desperately needs it. She changed many of us for the better.

    We will be putting out some words tomorrow, but in the meantime we urge people to donate to Becca's favoured charity which she worked toward fundraising for in the past, Epilepsy Action - https://www.epilepsy.org.uk/involved/donations Thank you.
