Closing this community
With the flight from Live Journal, should we just close this community down? Is it useful enough to ressurect elsewhere, like Dreamwidth, or just have the Facbook page, which is active for updates, if not discussion.

You wait ages for a Wobblevision and then two come along at once.

Moscow State Circus In London
If anyone is interested in circuses, the Moscow State Circus is visiting London during and after Eastercon, on Shepherds Bush Green April 3rd-19th. This is about 40 minutes from the con by public transport, assuming good luck with connections, or a drive via Chiswick and Hammersmith.

The Moscow State Circus returns to the UK with its latest and greatest production to date. 'Zhelaniy' is based on the Russian folklore story of Cvetik-Semicvetik, or "the flower with seven colors", by Benjamin Losin, where each of the petals represent a wish and is the perfect back drop for what is undoubtedly the greatest and most famous circus on earth.

Provisional Programme LIVE

Of course, not only is this subject to change before it goes to dead tree format, it may very well change after that so as always nothing is set in stone. For those who are eagerly awaiting our *extremely limited* day membership release (looks like no memberships will be available on the door - sorry) it will help in selection of day.

download and enjoy!

Final PR Live
Hi all,

We've got the final PR up on the website - grab it before the link gets to everyone's email and the site slows to a crawl ;-)

In it are details of how to get to us, stuff in the area, a fun item, dealers and more.

Of course the programme will be live in a short time on the site too.

We are highly unlikely to be selling memberships on the door as we're almost sold out so if you aren't signed up and want to go then please do pop over to https://www.dysprosium.org.uk/join and sign up :-)

The PR is at: https://www.dysprosium.org.uk/publications/

It's PR2 although the third PR we did.

Eastercon talk
During the 2011 Eastercon (Birmingham International) I gave a talk about Victorian / Edwardian SF called "Empire of Earth"

I ad-libbed a little at various points and I'm now trying to reconstruct what I actually said, as opposed to what I have written down, since I remember it as being considerably funnier than the script.

Did anyone record this? If so, I'd love to get hold of it.

Worldcon Play
I'm recruiting for a theatrical production at Worldcon and wondered where a good place to do this would be.  I'm keen to contact international fans as well as home grown.  Any thoughts?

Where's Eastercon? Here it is...
I've been sufficiently amused by the idea of the What3Words site - find anywhere on the planet in three words - to buy a personalised OneWord off them.

Clicking on http://what3words.com/*EasterconUK will take you to the front door of the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow. Depending on the outcome of the bidding session for 2015, I'll move the pointer to the location for that; and the year after that...

The nice thing about this is that nobody else needs to change a thing: the above link will keep on working no matter where it's pointing to.

Iain M Banks Odyssey 2010 GoH Interview
We have put up Iain M Banks Guest of Honour Interview conducted by Jane Killick at the Odyssey 2010 Eastercon. This hasn't been previously available but we felt this could be something we could do to remember him with.

Please feel free to share.

Worldcon Play
I've been trying to decide what to pitch as a play for Worldcon.  It's done this "what do you want", "no, what do you want?" circle and then I thought it shoudl be "what does the audience want?"  So, what do you want?

And also, if you are interesting in taking part, please get in touch.

Eastercon trademark
For anyone who wasn't at the bid session at EightSquaredCon, the Eastercon trademark has been re-registered for another ten years.

The trademark details can be seen here.

The Eastercon FAQ has been updated and can be seen here.

The Eastercon entry in Wikipedia has been updated to reflect these changes.

Bradford pub crawl
There seems to be interest in this, so lets meet in the con hotel lobby at 19.30 on Thursday.

Most of the pubs I know are around Bradford Forster Square station, so we may have to start with cabs.
