Thanks to everyone who has booked for BiCon already – it's a real boost to see bookings coming in and helps us to plan a lovely BiCon for you (not to mention pay for it…) The sooner we get your bookings the better BiCon will be for everyone including the team!
After agreeing deadline with our onsite accommodation provider we can now confirm that the deadline for booking and paying for tickets with on site accommodation is Wednesday 13th June. It is possible for people in financial difficulty to arrange a later final payment date, but this HAS to be agreed in writing with us and must still be paid by Friday 13th July.
If you don't need accommodation on site you can still book and pay for BiCon either in advance up to a week before the event itself or on the door in cash.
We can now also confirm that we will be able to offer a crèche within the University House building. This will be provided by Bluey and Baloo who are professional crèche providers who provided the crèche for BiCon in 2016 and 2017 and we are very happy to be working with them again. We will confirm the exact crèche opening times nearer the time, but hope to cover all or most of the daytime session time. Children will need to be booked into the crèche in advance so please let us know when you book if you will be bringing children with you and we will send you a crèche booking form. The deadline for completed crèche booking forms is Friday 15th June.
Children in accommodation
We can now confirm that children of any age can stay in the same room as their adults in BiCon accommodation, however parents are not allowed to set up portable cots in the rooms due to fire regulations, so you would have to share the small double bed.
The maximum occupancy of each room is two, so if you have more than one child per adult you would need to book an extra room. If this applies to you or if you would prefer a separate room for your child please get in touch with us about child bedroom prices which will be subsidised.
