Artist Tanya Roberts at OH!CON 2022

OH!CON: The Outer Hebrides’ ComicCon will be back on Saturday 14 October 2023, celebrating all that is good in comics, games, sci-fi and fantasy.

This year the con will be taking over the UHI Outer Hebrides campus in Stornoway to provide even more activities for people of all ages.

The first OH!CON, held in 2022, spectacularly sold out within two weeks of tickets being available, and this year’s con will be even bigger and better, the organisers are pledging. 

As well as a series of fun and creative activities, such as LEGO, table-top gaming, animation and VR, OH!CON will feature a range of talks and workshops from invited guests. This year OH!CON will feature activities in Gaelic as well as English.

Heather Hamilton, one of the directors of OH!CON, said, “Last year we were blown away by the enthusiasm and level of participation for the first OH!CON. It showed that there is definitely a massive local interest in comic con culture and it was fabulous to see people of all ages coming together to come in cosplay, try out new things, and have fun!”

OH!CON is working in partnership with UHI Outer Hebrides, An Lanntair and Taigh Chearsabagh to provide a range of events across the islands. 

Hannah Ritchie-Muir, Principal and CEO, of UHI Outer Hebrides said,“ Following the huge success of OH!CON in 2022, we are delighted to welcome the event to UHI Outer Hebrides for 2023; providing a bigger venue for more fun and activities. We understand the importance of the Creative Industries for our local community and economy.  Our staff will provide information and talks on careers and training opportunities as part of the event.”

OH!CON is planned and run by a team of passionately dedicated and hard-working volunteers. Any individuals or organisations who’d like to be part of the team and help to deliver this year’s con can find out more on the OH!CON website at or by contacting the team on social media. There’s lots to do, from looking after Daleks to helping with art and craft activities or running talks and workshops!

Tickets for this year’s OH!CON will go on sale in the summer. For more information visit the OH!CON website and follow us on social media to keep up to date.
