Combat Workshops

Please note that if you are taking part in a workshop during the time when the photo session is taking place in the morning or when the signing session is taking place in the afternoon then please speak to a volunteer at the photo/signing session and we'll make sure you get your photographs/autographs as quickly as possible so you can get back to your workshop and only miss a small part of it.

Medieval Combat Workshop

Medieval Combat Group

Host: Medieval Combat Group
Workshop A: 10.00 am
Workshop B: 11.00 am
Workshop C: 12.00 pm
Workshop D: 8.00 pm
Room: Winterfell
Tickets: £5

Qualified instructors from Medieval Combat Group will be holding beginners workshops offering lessons in one or more of the following weapons:

* These weapons are available in limited numbers, so workshops involving these will be split between two weapons.

Choice of weapons will be offered at the start of each class, and workshops will be run on the weapons that have the majority vote. The instructors will do their best to accommodate people's preferences, but obviously cannot subdivide a group too many times. If you have any strong preferences, please state these in the 'Notes' section when booking.

Modern protective equipment will be supplied where necessary.

Tickets for the Medieval Combat Workshop cost £5.00 each. Online ticket sales open at 12.00 noon (UK time) on Saturday 19 September 2015. Please see the Medieval Combat Workshop tickets page for more details and to buy your tickets. Places for this workshop are limited to 12 people and you must be aged 18 or more to take part.

Any participants who have had alcohol on the day will NOT be permitted to take part. Whilst we don't want to ruin anyone's fun, we also want to keep everyone safe. That means we don't put training weapons in the hands of anyone who has been drinking, no matter how little they've had.

Medieval Combat One-on-One Lessons

Host: Medieval Combat Group
Time: By appointment
Duration: 30 minutes
Room: Winterfell
Tickets: £15

In addition to group workshops Medieval Combat Group are offering special one-on-one lessons in any of the weapons listed above. There is no online ticket sale for One-on-One lessons, instead you may book your lesson at the Medieval Combat Group's display table in the corridor outside the Winterfell Room on the day at TitanCon 2015. Your timeslot can be booked for a suitable time depending on the availability of instructors, availability of space in the Winterfell room, and if possible to suit your schedule for the day.

By the way Medieval Combat Group have kindly donated a One-on-One lesson as a prize in our Raffle Prize Draw at the Closing Ceremony. If your ticket wins and you select this as your prize you may take the lesson at any time on Saturday night, or book a day and time with Medieval Combat Group for your lesson.

Host: Miltos Yerolemou
Time: 2.00 pm
Room: Winterfell
Tickets: £40 (or £30 concession rate)

We are pleased to announce that Miltos will be hosting one of his awesome Water Dancing Workshops at TitanCon from 2.00-3.30 pm on Saturday 26 September. During this 90 minute workshop 30 lucky attendees will learn the art of stage combat and get to pair up to workshop your own fight routine, under Miltos' expert supervision, that you'll then perform for the rest of the group at the end of the session.

Tickets for the Water Dancing workshop cost £40 each. This includes an autograph from Miltos which would be £15 on it's own during the signing session.

At Miltos' request we are also able to offer a discounted workshop rate of £30 for students, unemployed and low-wage employment (less than £12,000 income per year). This is the same workshop and includes one autograph from Miltos. We will require proof presented on the day in the form of a valid student ID card, an unemployment record or your most recent wage slip, in order to qualify for the discounted rate. Anyone who has paid the discounted rate and cannot provide proof on the day will be asked to make up the difference.

Online ticket sales open at 12.00 noon (UK time) on Saturday 19 September 2015. Please see the Water Dancing Workshop tickets page for more details and to buy your tickets.

Participants in the Water Dancing Workshop will also have the opportunity to be invited up on stage to perform the routine they have created during the afternoon's workshop at 6.00 pm as part of the Water Dancing Stage Demonstration. This is entirely optional and you can take part in the workshop without having to go up on stage if you don't want to, that's no problem. But if you guys want to we'll give you the chance to showcase your creativity and flair for everyone to see!
