BristolCon is a one-day convention organized by the Bristol Fantasy & SF Society, under the auspices of the BristolCon Foundation. We are currently applying for status as a registered charity.
The next BristolCon will take place on October 26th, 2013. It is our fourth event, and we have been growing steadily. In 2009 we did an afternoon. For 2010 we did a whole day and almost tripled our attendance. In 2011 we added two more streams of programming and grew by just under 50%. In 2012 we attracted members from outside of the UK, and grew again. We are still thinking about becoming to a full weekend convention, but lots of people tell us that they like us as we are.
You can find a list of those responsible, and their contact details, here.
Our Guests of Honour for this year are writers Philip Reeve & Storm Constantine, and artist Mark Buckingham. Many of our regular guests will also be back for more, so we must be doing something right. To see what people thought of our 2012 event, click here.
Books, comics and merchandise will be available in the dealers’ room and authors will be available for book signings. There will also be a pub quiz and live music in the evening.
