As well as the Code of Conduct, Follycon has specific policies covering some activities. Please read through them and be aware that persistent breaches of the policies may result in your being asked to leave the convention.
Membership badges must be worn and prominently visible at all times. If you lose your badge, please go to Ops to check lost property and, if necessary, ask for a replacement. There may be a charge for replacement badges.
Please be considerate and switch mobiles either off or to silent mode during programme items. When using your phone outside programme items, please be aware of where you are standing and avoid blocking corridors.
No actual weapon, or any item that can be mistaken for one, may be carried either openly or concealed at any time on properties being used for Follycon. The only exceptions to this rule is where a weapon is part of a costume, in which case the weapon must be taken to Ops in advance to be approved and “peace bonded” unless it is very obviously a toy
Any item that is used in a threatening or harmful manner may be confiscated and the carrier may be asked to leave the convention.
Photography and Recording
In general, photography and audio/visual recordings for personal, non-commercial use are permitted in most areas of the convention. Photography and recording are not permitted in the Art Show.
We ask that you take photographs and recordings in a considerate manner.
If anyone is wearing a “no photography” badge or asks not to be photographed or recorded, this request must be respected. You can get these badges from Info Desk.
If someone is willing to be photographed or recorded but asks that the resulting media not be posted online or otherwise made public, this request must be respected.
Programme items may not be recorded without the prior permission of all panel members, and an announcement must be made in advance to ensure that audience members are aware of the recording.
Children at the Convention
Follycon aims to be an inclusive convention and as such we welcome children and families. A crèche is being provided and there will be lots for children to enjoy. However, we ask you to note that all members below the age of 18 remain entirely the responsibility of their parents or guardians at all times when not in the crèche.
