LIVE EVENTS

All weekend…

A place to escape just for the weekend, attend some events, make friends and relax.

With comedy shows, competitions, dances, fursuit games and much more…

Did Someone Say ‘Dances’?

Yes! Dance to a full range of music genres, catered for by our experienced DJs and backed by a fully stacked Main Stage of oomphs!

Whether you enjoy trance, dance, or just plain cheese, our line-up of maniacal mix masters will play host each dance night to familiar faces and newcomers and will get the dance floor jumping!

Grab your rave gear and shake that tail!

MULTIPLAYER GAMING

FOR THE WIN

Gaming

All things videogaming can be found here! We have a variety of home consoles set up for your gaming pleasure, along with enough controllers and plenty of different games. Our ever-expanding library includes Street Fighter, Guitar Hero, Soul Calibur, Pokken, Smash Bros, Amiibo Festival and more. Not a console gamer? We also have a wonderfully powerful PC hooked up with a massive library of steam titles in which to lose yourself.

Also held through the weekend will be various tournaments.  Don’t forget your fightsticks, as Street Fighter was very popular in our first year; you can guarantee it’ll be a smash again in upcoming events!
If there are any games you’d like to see, or donate to the digital games room for the duration of the weekend, or if you simply have any suggestions, feel free to drop an email to: vaise@jftw.org

Jackbox

Pit your wits against friends and strangers alike in this hilariously thought-provoking community network platform. Bring your smart phones or tablets and jump in on the fun either as a contestant or voting audience member. Grab a tipple and come along for a giggle!

Fursuiting

Or just a fan?

Fursuit Games

Hold on to your tails as following on from debut of JFTW Fursuit Games last year, this event promises to be even more manic!

We are looking for sprightly, game-for-anything types that can forgive a bit of rough and tumble. Serious applicants only as this will be a team-based affair, capitalising on the organised chaos of last year!!

Floor Wars

The first event of its kind in the UK, we are opening the Dance Floor to all participants. Whether you are a Fursuiter, partial Fursuiter, or a Dancer, this is the event for you.

If you want to apply for the dance competition, please fill out this survey: Dance entry

Fursuit Walk

We like doing things a bit differently. That’s why, for our first year we chose to mosey on down to the city of Bristol, where we brought life and joy to the Clifton Suspension Bridge and Millennium Square! This year, we’ll not be letting up, so you can rest assured that it will involve even more brilliant moments and the chance to see Bristol and its people in their glory. Like no other based in the UK. Where else can you travel in style to an iconic location and interact with the public… on mass! This year we’ll be taking our coach loads of fluff to a themed destination. What this space!

MOTOR FURS

Start your engines, show them off and admire others.

Whether it’s two wheels or four, tuner or muscle, Euro, US or Japanese then Motorfurs is your opportunity to mingle with like minded auto enthusiasts and show off your pride and joy. You don’t even need a car to be part of it, come along and experience some real iconic motoring heritage and meet some truly fun, friendly and unique Petrol Heads who love to get their hands dirty!

Any licensed vehicles welcome. We’ll even have a few special guests for this years theme!

SOCIAL FOCUS

WITH CHANCES TO MAKE NEW FRIENDS

JFTW prides itself on bringing together con-goers through both diversity and acceptance in the fandom. With many attendees hailing from a variety of places throughout the world, we are confident that friendships both new and old will be made and strengthened through our fun and interactive events lineup.

The Lounge

The social hub of the convention. Bring your boardgames, card games, sketch books and smart phones; we have enough space in our lounge area for everyone to set up and have some fun. If you keep the game open more players can join and expand the fun! Feel free to grab staff as well, they need their rest periods too. Top up your drinks at the bar, and even order food if you like. Table service is available if you are too engrossed in a game. The area is open well into the night for those of you who are Night Owls.

Academy Bar

Just in front of the Main Stage / Nightclub sits the Academy bar, along with some seating for tired dancing legs. Make sure to grab a drink to take in with you for the opening and closing ceremonies, otherwise you’ll miss out on the traditional toast for JFTW!
