Click here to book for this year's BiCon!

BiCon bookings had to open late this year because of a change of team, but you can now book and pay by PayPal. As we are still somewhat overworked we especially appreciate it if you can book and pay in full as soon as you can. The deadline for booking tickets with on site accommodation is Wednesday 13th June.

If you need to you can ask to pay in instalments, and there is also some financial help available through the Access Fund. If you want to ask for these, or have access or childcare concerns which make you uncertain about attending, you can book now and select the ‘invoice me’ option at checkout. This will let you tell us your needs in the form so we can contact you about them and do our best to get your needs met. If once we have answers for you you feel that we cannot meet your needs, let us know that you won't be able to attend and you will not be charged for BiCon.

If you are booking for BiCon in advance, you can pay by PayPal. If this is a problem for you let us know as we will also be able to accept bank transfers soon. We are unable to accept payments in cash except for tickets without accommodation paid for at BiCon 2018 itself.


The deadline for booking tickets with on site accommodation is Wednesday 13th June. This is a deadline imposed by the venue so all rooms must be booked and paid for before this date.

We may be able to extend this deadline a little, but only if we fill all the rooms we currently have reserved with the venue before the deadline and are then able to book extra rooms, but we cannot promise this.

We would appreciate bookings to be made and paid for as soon as possible as it makes the work easier for your team and the more rooms we are able to confirm the more likely we are to be able to extend booking.

You can also buy day and weekend tickets (without accommodation) on the door – just come along to the desk. This option will be cash only.

Paying in instalments

You can pay for BiCon in instalments but as instalments involve extra work for the team, we ask that you only request them if you need them so we can focus our time and energy on attenders who need it the most. In the booking system select pay by invoice and "I want to pay in instalments" and we will contact you to discuss payment methods and dates.

Late payments may be possible for people in financial need including those paying in instalments and people being helped by the Access Fund. Please note this needs to be agreed by us and accepted by you in writing. The last possible payment date is Friday 13th July.

If you make partial payment but do not complete payment we will do our best to refund you but after the accommodation deadline this may depend on us being able to resell your room.
