BRISTOLCON IS BACK! LIVE AND ONLINE!

Memberships NOW on sale

A long time ago, in a very different world, we at BristolCon celebrated our tenth anniversary in style. Wind forward to today and so much has changed. Last October, we held two virtual events with Chris Lintott’s Zooniverse talk and Peter F Hamilton’s interview with Gareth L Powell. These were very well received as we learned the ropes for holding virtual events.

This year, we are planning for a combined in-person-and-online event on 30th October at our favourite venue, the Doubletree Hilton Hotel on Redcliffe Way. Our plans are to supplement the live event with some digital presentations, an online art gallery, and a social area. Our Guests of Honour are confirmed as Anna Smith Spark and Adrian Tchaikovsky.

Those of you who signed up for last year’s event will have received an email confirming that we have transferred your membership to this year’s event. Please contact us at (membership at Bristolcon dot org) if you have not received your confirmation.

We would love to see you all again after such a prolonged absence and we have today opened up the membership database to allow you to sign up. We have agreed to maintain membership prices at the previous level with the cutoff for the price rise postponed to 30th September.

If you would like to be involved in the organisation or running of the Con on the day, you would be most welcome. Please get in touch at (chair at bristolcon dot org) as we are particularly looking for support with registration, on-line tech, and volunteer coordination. 

We continue to monitor government advice closely and are working with the hotel to ensure the safety and well-being of our members. Updates will be posted here as they occur.
