Capital Sci-fi Con 2020

Read more ...


Capital Sci-Fi Con is back for its fifth year and this year promises to be the biggest one yet! Returning to the Edinburgh Corn Exchange, this year’s convention will take place over three days from 14 - 16 February 2020. As a celebration of everyone’s best loved characters and movies Capital Sci-Fi Con will be filled with everything from roaming Daleks and wand duelling classes to marching Stormtroopers!

The event is run by our amazing volunteers with 100% of the profit donated to Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS). Last year the convention raised an incredible £60,000 and this year we are hoping to raise even more to help keep the joy alive.

Three children with life-shortening conditions die each week in Scotland, but we only reach one of these families. We are determined to meet all of them. To make sure that no matter how short their time together, it is a time filled with happiness and fun.

We have had some fantastic auction prizes donated, including DOCTOR WHO star Peter Capaldi, who has donated a one-off, personally illustrated script.  There are also rare items donated by recent 2020 Golden Globe Winner Brian Cox, science fiction and fantasy veteran Sylvester McCoy and hard to find Star Wars memorabilia.  You can bid on any of these items even if you are not at the event. 

They say not all superheroes wear capes! It costs £12,750 per day to run our hospices and supporting families in their own homes and in hospitals, none of which would be possible without our generous supporters. 100% of the profits raised from this auction will go to CHAS.

The auction will close at 7pm on Friday 21 February- happy bidding!

PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS THE BUYERS RESPONSIBILITY TO ARRANGE COLLECTION FROM EDINBURGH OR COURIER FOR AUCTION ITEMS. Thank you!

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
