The family favourite event that brought to life all things animated and sparked our imagination- MagnetiCon- will not return in 2019.
Sadly the committee broke the news on social media, after many efforts to lock in a 2019 event.
"Due to a major sponsor going into liquidation and council not renewing our funding we can no longer afford to run the convention"
"MagnetiCon was the dream of a small local family who put many hours and dollars into it, but Whom alas can not fund it from their own pockets any longer."
The team went on to thank all who have supported the local event in the last three years.
"We would also like to thank our vendors for showing us support by coming on the day and helping us achieve our cost goals when it looked like we may not make it."
