Eastercon, the UK’s longest running science fiction convention will run in 2022. The event will be called Reclamation and the intention is to return Eastercon back to an in person event if possible. It will run Friday 15th to Monday 18th April 2022.
Memberships are available now, from the website at reclamation2022.co.uk. The venue is currently not confirmed due to complications caused by the global pandemic, but the plans for the event are very much underway. The event will likely be held in the south of England. The event was confirmed during a special meeting at the current Eastercon, Confusion 2021. This year’s Eastercon was presented entirely online and has been fraught with some technical issues.
Eastercon is entirely ran by fans for fans. They are non-commercial events. Different teams tend to organise the event from year to year and events can be planned up to two years in advance, though this is not always the case.
The organisers behind this year’s Eastercon have proposed an event for 2023, however this was challenged by attendees. The details of who will organise the 2023 event has been deferred until a future Eastercon. A proposal for an Eastercon 2024 is currently underway and a presentation was made during the same meeting.
Those intending to attend next year’s Eastercon should purchase tickets here.
