5 posts in this topic

 8-10 September 2017

We are back again for TitanCon 2017 with more Fabulous Author guests, more Game of Thrones, more books, more workshops, more events and more awesome times than you can shake a spear at!


Once again we’ll be in the Wellington Park Hotel, Belfast. The Wellie are offering special room rate deals to TitanCon 2017 attendees at the same prices as last year.

Literature Night

We will be kicking things off on Friday 8 September with our popular Literature Night featuring readings from our author guests. This relaxed and informal gathering is the perfect opportunity to mingle with the other attendees, catch up with old friends or make some new ones. We'll also be offering a preview of our Art Show featuring incredible pieces of art by talented local and international artists available for purchase.

For the first time, we are expanding our Friday plans with some additional Literature Programming taking place on Friday afternoon from 3.00 pm. We understand not everyone will be able to make it in time, but we want to provide more things for early birds to see and do at TitanCon. We hope this proves popular and if that's the case then we may expand the Friday further in 2018.

TitanCon 2017

The convention itself is on Saturday 9 September and will be jam-packed with scintillating programming and events throughout the day. Our doors open at 9.00 am and runs till 6.30 pm, with evening entertainment from 7.30 pm through till 1.00 am. We highly recommend sticking around till late for a rare chance to see some of the Game of Thrones cast members on the dance floor!


We'll be announcing an exciting line up of amazing author guests within the next few weeks. This will include some of the biggest names in Science-Fiction and Fantasy Literature, along with some of the best new local talent in Northern Ireland.

Because of the constantly changing nature of the production schedule for Game of Thrones we will only be able to announce our full line up of Game of Thrones guests a week or two before the convention. Rest assured that we are working hard to make announcements as soon as we possibly can and we are confident we'll have a great line up on the day. We are committed to not naming guests until we are completely sure that they will be in Belfast on that weekend and available to attend. We would hate to announce someone only for them to drop out when the schedule changes.


TitanCon 2017 programming will feature discussion panels, interviews, crafting workshops, combat workshops, a crazy-fun quiz, The Great TitanCon Booksale and author signing session, photo sessions with the Game of Thrones guests and of course a signing session.

TitanCon Coach Tour

Tickets for the 2017 Coach Tour on Sunday 10 September are not available for purchase yet because at this time we have not settled on a route. But we expect to announce full details of the 2017 Coach Tour and open ticket sales before the end of June this year.

Sounds great! When can I buy tickets?

Tickets for attendance to TitanCon 2017 cost £28. Tickets go on sale at 12.00 noon (UK time) on Saturday 25 February 2017.

Your confirmation email will include booking codes for the special room rate at the Wellington Park Hotel, so please don't contact the hotel directly until after you have bought your ticket and received the confirmation email.

Supporting Membership

Perhaps you are unable to be at TitanCon 2017 but would still really like to see our convention succeed. Supporting Membership can be bought for just £5 and your greatly appreciated support will help us to continue in 2017 and beyond. Supporting membership can be upgraded to Full Attending Membership at a later date for £23, just in case it turns out you can make it. Supporting Membership also counts towards your Making the Eight number!

Follow us for announcements!

Got to book my hotel room soon.

I intend to fly directly to Belfast this year. Going to Dublin is somewhat cheaper and there's a direct flight but I can't stand the 2-hour-busride anymore. Not getting younger, I am. :P

I'm interested.  Can get a nonstop roundtrip from Hartford to Dublin for under $600.  Anyone else from the NE US thinking about this one?

ooh it will be fun.   and great to have you.  Its a small, friendly Con, and very relaxed.   This year programing (not just lit night) starts on the friday afternoon for the first time ever.


although If you can only make one trip across the pond in the next few years, I'd suggest waiting till 2019.  there is a really good chance Worldon will be in Dublin   and TitanCon has a bid for EuroCon for the following week.


Of course this don't mean you can't do both.



In other news I have finally booked my room.   Gee I am slacking this year  guess thats what happens when I don't worry over badge number.
