The story of AniMedia East 


The idea to start the group in 2009 was to create a community where fans can share their interests and make new friends in a safe environment. The events we run give the community an opportunity to cosplay in between more larger scale events. We are a non-profit group made by fans, for fans to enjoy, and will continue to run as long as the community needs us.


The committee, who run the events and social media, currently consist's of Raye Springall, who has been at the helm of the group since the very start. The group has recently lost the wonderful Mark Harper suddenly who helped Raye run meets in recent years, and he will be missed so very much, RIP friend.


We always aim to raise money for charity, and have so far raised funds for:

E.A.C.H
Air Ambulance
Pray for Japan

Norwich Mind

CLIC Sargent


Our Facebook and Twitter pages are the quickest sources for up to the minute information on the comings and goings of the group. This site was created purely for people who are not set up on social media.


Feel free to contact us if you have any questions ~ Raye
