Card Payments

October 23rd, 2017< by Peter Sutton --> · No Comments

Unfortunately we are unable to take card payment on the door this year. Please bring enough cash to pay for your membership or pay in advance (it is £5 more expensive to pay on the door than to pay in advance. Advance payments end at midnight on Wednesday 25th)

The nearest cashpoints to the Con hotel are at Temple Meads side entrance, the McColls shop on Temple Way or the co-op on Redcliffe street

The old pound coin is going out of circulation

September 26th, 2017< by Peter Sutton --> · Comments Off on The old pound coin is going out of circulation

We’ll not be accepting it as by the time BristolCon rolls round the round pound coin will no longer be legal tender. Make sure you raid your piggy banks, do a good rummage down the back of the sofa and grab the old pounds and spend them before the 15th October!
