Date ~ 8th-11th August, 2014Why has the date changed?
Because of Worldcon 2014 taking place in London in August 2014, and venue availabilityWill it clash with Worldcon / Eurocon?
No!But it's not a bank holiday...
Sorry... the first few Conventions weren't on Bank Holidays, and we felt it was more important to stay within the school holidays and not clash with other events people would want to go to.Venue
The Palace Hotel http://www.principal-hayley.com/browse-our-hotels/the-palace-hotel.aspxWe're going back to Manchester?
Yes! The first Discworld Convention was in Manchester in 1996. We've got a different (bigger) venue this time though!Why have we changed venue?
We had lots of mixed feedback about the Hilton and felt it was time for a new place. We really love the look of the Palace.What will the rooms cost?
Prices will be announced when membership opens. It's a competitive deal and we think you'll be happy with it.Are there enough bedrooms?
The majority of people will be able to get a bedroom at the Palace. There will also be overflow hotels within 3 mins walk of the Palace, available at a good deal via us. Book quick to get a room at the Palace as soon as membership opens!Travel to and parking
The Palace is directly opposite Manchester Oxford Road train station, which is 25 mins on the train from Manchester Airport. We have arranged some special parking deals which will be announced when membership opens.Other stuffIs Terry coming?
