Sci-Fi & Fantasy Society

The Sci-Fi & Fantasy Society offers a fun and welcoming environment where followers of all fandoms can come together to socialise, learn, and flaunt their passion for film, literature, and games. Cardiff is the ideal location for any Sci-Fi or Fantasy fan due to the countless filming locations for BBC’s Doctor Who, Sherlock, and Being Human. As well as this, Cardiff boasts some of the cheapest cinema prices in the country, so numerous cinema trips will be planned to see the latest and largest releases!


We’re proud to host a wide array of social events throughout the year in a safe, all-inclusive setting. For our regular weekly events, we met every Monday to hang out and get creative: we make fantastical creatures in our Creature Creation events, build epic worlds in our World-Building events, have fun debates in our Movie Fights and write stories in our Creative Writing events. We also host regular movie nights every Saturday, as well as go for ice cream on a habitual basis. We also host a games night every Friday on our Discord!! For our less frequent events, meeting on the first Monday of every month, we have the SciFan Book Club where we get together to read the most loved Sci-fi and Fantasy books, new and old, and discuss them! Finally, we also have a weekly newsletter which highlights key events in the Sci-fi and Fantasy world as well as where we announce our latest socials!


We also have a strong relationship with other nerdy societies and beyond. We collaborate frequently with Anime, CRITS, Gaming, Film, Quiz, and the Harry Potter Society. Annually, the nerdy societies of Cardiff compete in NERD VARSITY, an Olympic-style event where teams from each society play sports and games from our favourite films and books. Events in the past have included a Quidditch Tournament, Capture the Flag, a Lightsabre Fencing Tournament and a Mario Kart Championship!!
