Auchinawa needs you!


In the run up to the event the committee will become increasingly busy, so rather than neglecting our fancy new website we would love to populate it with your marvellous content.

This is a call out for convention articles, thoughts about the anime scene, interesting experiences, original artwork, photos of your favourite Auchi memories and anything else you would like to supply us with. Running a related event you’d like to promote? Let us know!

This is your convention. Time to take it back!

Auchinawa presents - Indie Games in Scotland Interactive Exhibition


As part of Auchinawa's commitment to promoting Scottish creative talent at this years event, we are excited to introduce a series of events and panels devoted to digital game development in our country.

Fear Escape


Strange news everyone! A new event entitled “Fear Escape” has appeared in our schedule for the Auchinawa weekend, hosted by a source we know only by his alias, Dr Fear.

Thinking it was some sort of spam, we deleted the post, but barely seconds later it reappeared. The committee’s phones rang simultaneously and on answering the call were met with a chilling, yet well-spoken voice whispering hoarsely: “Do not attempt that again”.

Marshmallow Dreams – Serving cakes and challenging stereotypes!

The maid café is a long standing placement at any convention, often taking on a different name or theme but still remaining a much anticipated event in the convention schedule. This year Auchinawa is hosting one of Scotland’s first Maid Café teams, the girls at Marshmallow Dreams, to run our maid café event.


I recently arranged to sit down with teacakes and Earl Grey to speak to head maid, 23 year old Keara.
