As well as the many events, talks and panels on the programme, we are delighted to present a trio of evening entertainments over the convention weekend.
We’re delighted that Professor Elemental will be performing live on the Friday evening, 3rd April. Professor Elemental is a steampunk-flavoured mad Professor, and you can expect a combination of comedy and music, with friendly audience banter and plenty of improvisation. If you’ve seen the Professor before, you’ll be as pleased as we are that he’s joining us; if you haven’t, follow the link to his site and find out more!
On Saturday evening, 4th April, our Guest of Honour Seanan McGuire has very kindly agreed to give a concert, supported by Talis Kimberley and her band. In addition to her outstanding work as an author, Seanan is an award-winning singer/songwriter with unique original songs.
The trio of evening entertainments will be completed on Sunday 5th April by our Masquerade Ball and disco. We’ll start off the evening focusing on the wonderful creativity of our members, with fannish costumes, outfits and ball-wear. Those in costume will enter in procession, after which there will be a short display. We’ll then progress on to the disco where everyone young and old, costumed and street-clothed can get on to the dance floor, rounding off the last full day of the convention with music and fun. We’re pleased to announced that our Masquerade Ball and Disco will be spoonsored by Dublin in 2019. Dublin is bidding to host Worldcon in 2019. We wish them the very best of luck, and we’re delighted that they’ve chosen to spread the word by supporting us. Make sure to keep your Sunday evening free for the Dublin in 2019 Masquerade Ball and Disco!
