Every year, Viva Hate runs Derby's local Cosplay, Anime & Gaming convention, J-Con.


Twelve years old this year, The convention has just got better and better as times gone on.

With competitions, bands, games, guests, panels, traders and artists, J-Con is growing into one of the largest conventions in the UK. Every year between 700 and 1000 Anime Fans, Cosplayers, Lolitas, Doll Enthusiasts, Larpers, Card Gamers, Gamers, Manga Collectors, Video Gamers and Other fans of J-Culture descend on our convention in the name of fun!

Why not come and join the party every September? Get your cosplay ready and prepare yourself for 2 days of hyper-excitement that will leave you going home at the end with a belly full of Pocky and a feeling inside you of pure bubblegum! ^_^
