Fansview should have it listed if looking for a totally anime con - looks like there is one at end of February.

If looking for more general Sci-Fi con that may or may not have anime things, listing of European conventions at

ah! I was wondering about this, too. I really wanna go to a con and try cosplay for real ;_;

The next UK convention will be Minami in March....but that has fully booked up so another group has made an overflow convention the weekende before that, and it is call Nomicon 2003-

So really the next one is Nomicon, and you are all welcome to cosplay there!

The next one after will be Ayacon some time in the late quarter of the year.

oh cooool :D Has anyone ever been to one of these UK cons? Are they pretty much the same as the ones held in the US?

You know, for a while, I actually considered going to a UK con... cost budget of course axed that.

Then that very cool Japan Expo in Paris, France came up last year, but they always choose the same damn date as AX... aauurgghh... I REALLY wanna do Paris, too... ;_;

BUT! There is hope for Cartoonist Con in Paris, France in November... maybe for 2004, dunno yet. They have cosplay and all the good stuff there, too.

The UK conventions are kind of more conservative than the US...
There are probably more things to do at a US con and a UK con is much smaller (about the crowds you get at smaller US cons i suppose)
Just give it a shot, I'll be at Nomicon this year

I'm going to Minami *bounces* first con, tickets went fast O_O;
Nomicon is a very small con which is happening the weekend before Minami. The next con then is going to be AYA (http://www.ayacon.org.uk/) which takes place in northampton at halloween. Keep your eye on that link as registration will come and go reaaalll quick.

P.s, if you need more info on UK cons visit ANIME EUROPE (http://www.anime.me.uk)
