TitanCon - A not-for-profit science fiction and fantasy literature, media and gaming convention for Belfast focused on showcasing literary and artistic accomplishments in Northern Ireland within the field of speculative fiction and works of the imagination.

Back, Bigger, and Better Than Ever!

We are delighted to announce that TitanCon is back in 2018, and for the first time expanded to a full weekend of programming and events.

The convention will start on the afternoon of Friday, 24 August, then continue throughout Saturday, 25 August and Sunday, 26 August, wrapping up at 4 p.m. on Sunday. Our Coach Tour will once again follow the convention, taking place on Monday, 27 August. An overview of the weekend schedule can be found on our programme page.

Monday, 27 August is a Public Holiday in Northern Ireland, and also in England and Wales (although unfortunately not in the Republic of Ireland or Scotland). As TitanCon has grown in recent years, we have found it increasingly difficult to squeeze our aspirations into the one-day format, and the holiday weekend enables us to greatly expand our programming and accommodate an enlarged Dealers' Room and Art Show.

Our Venue

We will once again find our home at the Wellington Park Hotel, located close to Queens' University and the Botanic Gardens. We will have exclusive use of the first floor function space throughout Saturday and Sunday. We are grateful to Malachy Toner (General Manager) and his team for their hospitality and support. Room rates in the Wellie are £77 bed and breakfast per night for single occupancy and £87 for double occupancy. Booking information can be found on our hotel information page.

Memberships

Memberships are now on sale! This year we are also offering lower cost Young Adult Attending and Child Attending Memberships alongside our regular Adult Attending and Supporting Memberships. Young Adults are those aged 16-25 as of Friday, August 24, 2018. Children are those 6-15 as of Friday, August 24, 2018. Membership rates are as follows.

The Coach Tour and Feast price will be set once we have finalised the itinerary, but is expected to be around £40 per person.
