The XTC Convention 2022 will has been announced for Friday to Sunday, 16-18 September.

Steam has been chosen as the venue for the convention, which is billed as a not-for-profit gathering of XTC fans from all over the world, created by fellow fans of the legendary Swindon band.

A spokesperson for the organisers said: "Originally planned for 2020 and postponed due to the pandemic, it builds upon the exuberant virtual conventions of 2020 and 2021, and will be the first in-person UK XTC Convention since 2017.

"Join us for live music and much more as we celebrate the band at STEAM, at various locations around Swindon, and the famous 3,000 year old White Horse at Uffington."

The ancient landscape artwork appears on the cover of the Swindon band's iconic album, English Settlement, and the convention organisers are planning a four-hour coach excursion on the final day of the convention.
