To ease concerns about the future of the British Eastercon raised by the cancellation of Pasgon, the fans behind the Follycon 2018 Eastercon bid unveiled their plans today, instead of waiting for this year’s Eastercon. They announced on Facebook —
Our committee is Michael Abbott, Liz Batty, Steve Davies, Kari, Alice Lawson, Caroline Mullan, Phil Nanson, Alison Scott and Paul Taylor. We have a few staff in place but if you’d like to get involved there will almost certainly be a suitable role for you. Our lovely fool (one of several you will see) is by Sue Mason.
They propose to hold the 2018 Eastercon in The Majestic Hotel, Harrogate.
The Majestic is a large Victorian hotel, set in its own lovely gardens in the spa town of Harrogate. It’s in walking distance of the station and has a good range of function space with natural light.
