We’d like to thank everyone for being patient in these crazy times we find ourselves living in. We, as a committee, have been watching as events unfold and discussing how to best plan for what currently feels like inevitable eventualities.
We are planning for a virtual or possibly hybrid convention. We do not see how an ‘in person only’ convention will be possible by Easter of 2021, but we are continuing to make plans to allow those who want to be there in person to be able to attend if the guidelines change to the point where this will be permitted.
With this in mind, we have set our sights on bringing you an online experience as close to ‘being there’ as we can. We know that there have been a few free conventions recently and many are calling for free online content for all, but the truth of the matter is that setting up an experience that goes beyond a zoom channel with a few breakout rooms and a set of downloadable pre-recorded items takes funding, and to that end, we are rolling out an ‘online membership’ level. The rate will be £50 – adult attending, £30 – concession.
We are working on video updates to give you more insight to our plans and these will be rolled out to our YouTube channel very soon: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0DP50gRF4zA8enWWSzhEgw/.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page and Twitter feed for announcements and look for us at Fan tables across the internet!
Once again, thank you for your patience and thank you for your support.
