The time is almost here for a transformation so big it's... mini!

At 10:00am (BST) on Saturday 17th September 2022, TFNation is opening ticket sales for the first ever TFN: Mini-Con®, which will be held at the MacDonald Manchester Hotel in Manchester, UK, on Saturday 25th March 2023!

TFN: Mini-Con® has been designed to be a more intimate event, to compliment and support TFNation's larger August convention, giving attendees another opportunity to meet friends, add to their collections, and celebrate those big fighting robots from Cybertron!

Venue Details

MacDonald Manchester Hotel is located just a couple of minutes walk away from Manchester Piccadilly railway station. For attendees who drive, the venue offers on-site parking or you can take advantage of numerous nearby carparks. Just a short stroll from the Arndale Shopping Centre and numerous comic book shops, attendees are sure to enjoy the convenient city centre location!
