so as you may have seen, we’re holding a little pre-con meet up in manchester (UK) and now we have some details for you!
- when? saturday july 6th, 2013
- what time? 12:30pm
- where? the triangle, manchester
this will be a FREE event and everyone is welcome, whether you think you’ll be able to make it to the actual convention or not!
we decided on the date by taking into consideration as many different school holidays as we could and also working it around our own schedules so we could all be there. we’ve tried to cater for everyone but obviously summer is a tricky time due to holidays and term times being different, but we hope a lot of you will be able to make it!
the nearest train station is manchester victoria and you can get the tram (metrolink) there from manchester piccadilly. we can always arrange to meet you in groups if you’re unfamiliar with the area or not so confident with public transport.
the event aims to be a way for you all to meet each other and get to know each other, find potential roommates for the con, meet other people in your fandoms that you might not know and just hang out and have a bit of fun! you’ll also be able to ask us things you might still not be too clear on and get to know us a little better.
feel free to turn up in cosplay if you so wish, we hope to have some little goodies available for sale which will help us fund tumbl-con and also may give you certain perks at the actual event!
bring music, bring games, bring food, bring FUN!
we’re super excited about this and hope we can see you there :)
p.s. please note that this was originally scheduled for the 13th of july but due to other commitments we had to change the date. the majority of you voted for the 6th, so here we are. if this proves popular enough, we may bring it to other cities over the coming months between now and the actual convention in summer 2014.
