In the Spring of 2020 an online convention for Michael Sheen fans was created to replace the cancelled Wales Comic Con.
The first Zoom-based event was a huge success and featured a surprise appearance from Michael himself. Attendees also raised money for several of Michael’s chosen charities.
Since then, the convention has continued with more events planned. SheenCon merchandise has been sold to raise further money for the charities, and the website now features a Spotlight section highlighting fan artists.
SheenCon 2021 took place on 21 – 23 May 2021, after having been postponed from April.
The weekend included quizzes, a Prodigal Son funeral, karaoke, group fanfic writing and watch parties.
HalloSheen took place from October 30 to November 1 2020 on Zoom, Discord and Twitter.
Activities included Fanfic Round Robin, All About Sheen Jeopardy, Halloween Pictionary and Bingo games, a costume contest, PowerPoint party, quizzes and watch parties. On the Sunday evening there was a Halloween quiz, and as a surprise Michael joined the Zoom as quizmaster. He then stayed for a while afterwards to talk about what he’d been up to.
The first SheenCon took place from 24-26 April 2020 on Zoom, Discord and Twitter.
Activities included fan art displays, watch parties, karaoke, Cards Against Humanity, cosplay and trivia. On the Saturday, Michael joined the fandom Zoom meet-up as a surprise, and answered questions from attendees.
