TitanCon ( Belfast ) Cancelled
August 28 - August 30
Titancon Cancellation 2020: Statement from Chair Jo Zebedee
It is with great, great regret that I and the Titancon committee a have decided to cancel this year’s convention. Continued concerns over COVID-19 have prompted this decision.
We have, however, put in place plans for a Titancon convention from 20-22nd August 2021, at the Hilton hotel, Belfast, and hope to come together as fans again then.
This has not been an easy decision, but the safety of our community is the most important thing to us, as a convention and as fans. We had exciting plans for the convention, great guests, and a fantastic programme to share with everyone – but we will very much look forward to next year’s convention.
I would like to thank the committee for their hard work this year, and professionalism through the uncertainty of the past weeks.
We will be issuing refunds, or the option of carrying your membership forward to 2021, and will be in touch with members to arrange this in due course.
I hope you and your loved ones are safe and well. Please continue to take care.
Titancon 2020 Chair
Titancon 2020, will be running in Belfast, on 28-30 August. We’d be delighted if you can join us. We will be returning to the Hilton Hotel once again.
Titancon is a not-for-profit science fiction and fantasy convention, covering literature, media and gaming as well as showcasing the speculative fiction scene in Northern Ireland.
This year, our theme is ‘On the Shoulders of Giants’, where we seek to celebrate the long tradition of fandom in Belfast. Over a three day programme, we’ll share the work of our guests and featured participants, have panels and discussions, provide evening entertainment, and host a dealers room and art room. We’ll continue to celebrate Northern Ireland’s links to Game of Thrones with our coach tour (optional) on the Sunday and a GOT themed feast to end the convention, as well as GOT-themed programming.
Follow us via our mailing list, on facebook, twitter or instagram for guest announcements, membership launch, coach tour and feast details and programme release. Accomodation links will also be available.
Memberships are now live along with details of our Guests of Honour and programme participants. If you want to keep up to date, follow our social media accounts or sign up to our mailing list here.
