Well the UK convention is only every two years so you have plenty of time to plan for August bank holiday 2014.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Except that it might not be August bank holiday weekend according to what I read on the CA forum somewhere.

Where it is may change but when is unlikely to change. August bank holiday works as it is a long weekend most people in the UK get off and that is why all of the 7+1 conventions have been held that weekend. Where is also tricky, there are a limited number of hotels that can cope with 1,000 people at a time with all the extra rooms needed to host the various events.
