Post-BiCon - notes to self [Aug. 16th, 2015|11:03 pm]
UK National Bisexual Conference

As has happened for a number of years here's a place where you can leave a note to yourself that you'd like to be reminded of shortly before BiCon 2016. [Err, not that reminding people of their 2014 notes happened before BiCon in 2015!]

Cheap train tickets starting to be available! [May. 22nd, 2015|12:04 pm]
UK National Bisexual Conference

EastMidlands (direct) and VirginEastCoast (change at Grantham) are now available.

CrossCountry are available to BiCon - if you're using them, get it now and get the 'from' ticket in a few days.

Northern are available on the Thursday - ditto.

The very cheapest tickets from London will be via MegaTrain, the bargain brand of EastMidlands. Prices start at £1 + booking fee, but only on a limited number of trains and not on Sundays. Their tickets are currently available about six weeks ahead of the journey date.

Family accommodation [Apr. 8th, 2015|11:04 pm]
UK National Bisexual Conference


I'm starting to think about booking Bicon and it's occurred to be that the on site accommodation might not be the best option for us this year. It'll be myself, my partner and our then 10 month old so we'd either have to sleep separately or cram into a room together. What are other people with children doing? What has worked for you in the past?

The Access Fund needs your contributions [Apr. 7th, 2015|11:43 pm]
UK National Bisexual Conference

Hi folks

Hope everyone has had a chance to book for BiCon. The organisers have been astonished at the numbers - over 100 in the first two days.

You know how usually when you book for BiCon, you get the opportunity to give to the Access Fund at the same time? Unfortunately we weren't able to offer that this year, so we need people to contribute separately to the fund.

Here's some examples of what your contributions could go towards.

  • £5 could pay for a taxi round the venue for someone with access difficulties

  • £10 could halve the day ticket price for someone on a low income

  • £25 could cover Thursday night accommodation for someone travelling a long way or who needs rest before BiCon

  • £50 could cover the cost of a mobility scooter for the whole of BiCon

  • £115 could provide free registration for a disabled person's support worker

Please contribute so that we can keep offering much-needed financial support.

The easiest way to contribute is to give by PayPal:
If you'd like to give to the Access Fund another way, for example by BACS or IBAN, please contact us.

Thanks for your generosity.

BiCon 2015 bookings are OPEN [Apr. 2nd, 2015|08:24 pm]
UK National Bisexual Conference

Not only do many of us have four blissful days of *no work* approaching, but bookings for BiCon 2015 have just opened. Happy days!

It really helps save the organisers stress if you book early. Not only that but as the best rooms will be allocated first come, first served, you'll get a better room and we'll know how much food and resources to organise. Everyone wins!

Bookings open Thursday 2 April, 8pm [Mar. 26th, 2015|08:11 pm]
UK National Bisexual Conference

Hi folks!

Delighted to announce that BiCon 2015 bookings will open on Thursday 2 April at 8pm.

It's worth booking early because we'll be assigning the best rooms - those nearest the social areas, with en suite and so on - first in, first served, with some set aside for those with access needs, of course.

Tickets start at £99 for three days of BiCon and two nights accommodation, including meals.

Please book early, even if you don't need accommodation. This helps us make sure we've got enough food and resources for everyone.
