That was the Con that Was

Hello everyone, and thanks for coming to Illustrious. It wouldn't have been the fantastic event it was without you.

Our final tally of members is now up on the membership list page. It'd be a good idea to go and have a look there. If your name has an asterisk against it, it means that we don't have your full postal address. Which in turn means that we won't be able to send you your souvenir book once it's ready. Contact us at to give us your details.

Speaking of the souvenir book, we'd like as many photos, con reports, amusing remembrances, or other retrospectives as you can all supply. If you have something that you'd like to include in the book, please contact us at

Finally, we still have some lost property that we collected over the weekend. If you're missing something, please contact us at

Thanks once again, and we'll see you next time!

Hilton Non-resident Parking Rate

We have arranged with the hotel that non-residents will benefit from the £3 per day (as opposed to £12 per day) parking rate.

To get the reduced rate you will have to visit reception and provide your entry ticked. You will then be provided with an exit ticket in exchange upon payment of £3.
