Event News

The next two Eastercon events were announced at this year’s Eastercon event, Mancunicon, over the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend. Eastercon is a British science fiction convention that focuses on science fiction literature. It has been running since 1948.

The 2017 Eastercon will be called Innominate, though most of the fans seem to want to call it simply Eastercon 2017. It will be held over April 14th – 17th at the Hilton Metropole at the NEC, Birmingham. The Guests of Honour are Pat Cadigan, Judith Clute and Colin Harris. The event is a last-minute replacement for Pasgon, a Cardiff based Eastercon that was cancelled due to logistic issues.

2018’s Eastercon was also announced at Mancunicon. It is to be called Follycon and will be held March 30th - April 2nd, 2018 at The Majestic Hotel, Harrogate.

The guests of honour are comic book writer Kieron Gillen (best known The Wicked + The Divine), Nnedi Okorafor (best known for her book Who Fears Death), and legendary Kim Stanley Robinson who is known to most of us for The Mars Trilogy. The event will also have a fan guest of honour, Christina Lake, who won the Nova Award for the fanzine Balloons Over Bristol.

More information on Follycon can be found here.
