  • Alcon 2014 to be held at De Montfort University, Leicester on 4-7 September 2014


    The Alcon 2014 website will not be put up and tickets will not go on sale until the beginning of February. If you want to view the Alcon 2013 website to get an idea of what the event is about then CLICK HERE.


    Cosplay Music Video by Queens Of Winn.

    Get your calendars out and make sure to put aside the 4th-7th September for Alcon 2014!

    Once more we shall be at De Montfort University. We have listened to your feedback about space, and we're pleased to confirm that we shall be taking out the Lobby Bar (this is a smaller bar underneath Level 1) in addition to Level 1 and the Queens Building. This area shall act as a chillout and anime screenings and roleplay area in the daytime and a bespoke Karaoke bar late at night.

    The Alcon 2014 Website shall be launched at the end of January. Until then why not go participate on the forums and get to know fellow attendees beforehand?

    Guests. Got a Suggestion?

    With dates confirmed, we are starting to book in our guests. We want YOU to let us know who you'd like us to approach! Simply comment on this article with your suggestion!

    Supporting & VIP Memberships

    To help raise funds for even better guests, we shall be offering Gold VIP membership for this year. For an additional 20 you will get all the benefits of supporting membership as well as guaranteed priority access (provided you arrive a minimum of 10 minutes prior to the talk) to all guest talks, access to the dealers room half an hour early (and priority access), an additional VIP conbadge and access to our Saturday and Sunday guest-meet and greets which will be available to guests, performers and VIP badge holders ONLY.

    The Supporting Membership Upgrade will remain at 5, giving you all three clan badges (Note that Supporting Membership does not provide you with guaranteed priority access to guest talks; it is a way to get all clan badges and show that you're supporting the event).

    Price, Booking Information & Launch Date

    Ticket sales will be capped at 1,300 (sales were 1,400 last year including on the day sales). To further avoid overcrowding we will not be offering on the day sales this year. We are also looking at opening more of the event earlier on the Thursday (more info on that to come).

    Due to limited availability we advise to book and pay for your ticket early. A four-day ticket will cost 39 if you pay before the end of May and 45 thereafter for a late booking. Again, due to demand it is unlikely we will offer 1-day tickets this time around.

    We will be launching the new website, Alcon forum, and opening registrations in the New Year by the end of January. You will be able to book and pay online or pay in person at our other events such as London Anime & Gaming Con which will take place on 8-9 February next year.

    We look forward to seeing you all next year as we again make it our mission to make 2014 the best Alcon ever!

      Getting the producers who attended the last one would be great along with ones who haven't before, like The Cinema Snob, Diamanda Hagan, JesuOtaku, Obscurus Lupa and Phelous. Any would be wonderful

      It'd be neat to see the TGWTG Team again, especially if other producers like Lupa, Phelous, Cinema Snob ( and his pals) could show.

      I also agree with Ashen!

      What about Caddicarus? He's getting quite popular as a video game reviewer.
