Octocon’s programme typically includes panel discussions, workshops, presentations, and chats with guests and other fans (on specific topics), as well as special events such as book launches and demonstrations.
Octocon strives to have a varied and lively programme of events, panels, workshops, talks and chats, centred around our guests and programme participants, with typically between 50 and 60 hours of items over the weekend.
Putting together the programme requires a team of enthusiastic, creative people, who are willing to contribute ideas and energy and a couple of hours a week. For 2020, we want to expand our team to make our programme better than ever!
Know anything about science fiction, fantasy, horror, anime, comics, costuming and cosplay, science and technology, or literature, TV, film and random stuff on the internet related to SFF;
Can commit to at least an hour a week – starting with fortnightly meetings, but potentially increasing as October gets closer, depending on how much time you can give;
Buy FIVE memberships at the same time and pay NOTHING for the cheapest!
Supporting memberships can be upgraded to Adult Attending, Concession, Teen or Friend at any time in advance of the convention weekend. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: If you have already purchased a membership and are due a refund (either as a Teen or because the Concession rate was higher for a short time), we will be getting in touch shortly. If you haven’t heard from us by the end of the year, please email email@example.com.
Membership prices at the door will be higher. Details will be published closer to the convention.
