It’s July 2017 and we are now working actively to design our programme in detail. If you joined the convention and you ticked the box to say you would like to participate in the programme, we will get in touch soon. You can give us your ideas for our programme, or volunteer to be on the programme, using our online form, whether or not you are a member of the convention. Alternatively, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our programme philosophy is very simple: we want to make every single programme item as good as possible. We will have items inspired by our guests, items about the hot topics of the day, and items that will come as a complete surprise. We aren’t going to create artificial themes, but some may emerge if a subject deserves more than one programme item, and we like it when programme items inter-relate.
The programme will put science fiction and fantasy at its centre, but we will also explore the surrounding penumbra of subjects that are related to them and to the interests of SF fans. We want to talk about climate change, gods, cities, fandom, ethnicity, Star Wars, biochemistry, gardens, history, space opera, and fifty other subjects. There will be panels, workshops, games, talks, quizzes, music and frivolity.
We will remember absent friends and look to the future. We aim to be awesome.
We currently expect the programme to begin in the early afternoon of Friday, and to finish late afternoon on Monday. Times and all other details will be confirmed closer to the convention.
We look forward to seeing the usual great range of costumes at Follycon, and we’ll be confirming details of costume-related programming as we get nearer to the con.
