We are delighted to announce that the 6th annual festivities of ConFuzzled will be returning in the year AD 2013 on Thursday 30th May until Monday 3rd June, returning to the Hinckley Island Hotel, Leicestershire! Our website is now live too!
ConFuzzled will this year be celebrating the Mediaeval period of time: The Middle Ages. Where jousting, jesters, revelry, rivalry, wars and widows all abound. Great histories were unfolded, plays and stories woven and the foundations were set for the Age of Enlightenment.
The Middle Ages continue to be a great source of inspiration to fantasy authors, filmmakers, playwrights and performers today. We’ll be mixing up all of these elements to create a grand feast from which to serve you fine entertainment and themed events. We encourage you once again to dress up and join in with the magic at the centre of what makes ConFuzzled so special!
In response to popular demand, we have incorporated the Thursday night into the convention fully, extending the convention schedule by a whole extra day. Your feedback told us that our timetable was too crowded, and this will allow us to spread out the timetable and reduce the number of clashes between events.
We've listened to you about rooming arrangements, and it's now less expensive when you share your room with more people. We've had to have a rethink about the way we present this pricing, but it's clearly put this way: you share, you save. We have also negotiated a deal with the hotel which will allow you to pre-purchase an inclusive meal package for the weekend, ensuring you are well nourished and have the energy to take in all the exitement of the convention at a great price.
We are once again aiming to have two special guests, and we are proud to annouce that the first of these will be the talented artist Gab. Gab is no stranger to ConFuzzled, as last year she provided one of the large hanging banners in our glorious rotunda. For more details please head over to the Guest of Honour section of our website. We'll be announcing a second Guest of Honour later in the year, so keep an eye out for future announcements.
We'll be opening registration sooner than you think, so keep an eye on the usual forums, twitter accounts and our website for further details as we release them, and of course forthcoming announcements will reveal our chosen charity and more!
We're also launching our email newsletter! If you'd like us to send you regular updates via email about our plans as they develop, you can sign up for our regular newsletter by clicking thusly: http://eepurl.com/mEtQf
