Here's some confirmed conventions that I will be attending as a guest writer in 2009:
Gamesfest 4: 24/10/2009 Watford Colosseum.
From their website:
"Below is some info on what we plan to do this year.
One of the biggest changes is that we are looking to throw a bit of an after party by having a Rock concert! We also aim to include Comics, collecting / memorabilia and hopefully a few stars of the large and small screens!
A one day convention to showcase the best of Role playing, Wargaming, Boardgaming & Science fiction/Fantasy literature.
We want to pull all the strands of Fantasy/Science Fiction together and create a unique experience for the fan/enthusiast in one convention
Ours is a unique vision and we want to focus on customer satisfaction and a totally enjoyable day dedicated to players and fans alike.
The location: Watford Colosseum (Watford town centre)
Facilities include a fully licensed bar, two venue halls, dressing rooms, a large kitchen and ample parking facilities (for parking charges see link below). There is also a large stage with full lighting system. The Colosseum has a seating capacity of 1188 in the main hall and 298 seating space in the gallery.
The management has assured me that once we have all the stands in place the capacity will be 1000 attendees.
The transport links are excellent via Road and rail (the main line station is 10 minutes walk away)
At present we have two distinct elements to Gamesfest:
Gaming : Incorporating War games , role-playing , board gaming and CCGS.
Literature : Sci-Fi , Fantasy and Horror –
This year we want to further include:
Comics and guest writers/artists
Collecting / memorabilia and guests
Music: The venue is a music venue as well and we thought we might have an after party! We are speaking to Ghoultown from the US and a couple of home grown bands"
