Sci-Fi & Fantasy Society

The Sci-Fi & Fantasy Society offers a fun and welcoming environment where fans of all kinds of media can come together to socialise and talk about film, literature, and games. Cardiff is the ideal location for any Sci-Fi or Fantasy fan with the countless filming locations for Doctor Who, His Dark Materials, and BBC Sherlock. Also, the cinema tickets here tend to be pretty cheap! We'll run lots of cinema trips to see all the latest releases.

 

We run a wide array of socials throughout the year. We run socials every week, such as Creative Writing, Movie Fights, Worldbuilding, or just a general hangout. We also have movie nights every Saturday, showing movies voted for by you!

 

We run some of our events online (hosted in our Discord Server), so don't worry if you can't always make it in person! Our monthly book club runs as one of our online events.

 

Annually, the nerdy societies of Cardiff compete in Nerd Varsity, a friendly competition event where teams from each society play in various events inspired by the participating societies. Events in the past have included a Lightsabre Tournament, Mario Kart Championship, Worldbuilding, a Quiz, and loads more!! Proceeds from Nerd Varsity are donated to the winning society's chosen charity. Our charity is Trans Aid Cymru!

 

The best place to join us is in our Discord Server, but check out our Instagram too if that's more your style!
