    Gollancz Festival 2017, 4th November, London

    Wanted to come, but I'm not going to be able to make it sadly. Too much else going on around that time.

    Aye, I'll add you in.

    Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience European Tour

    I'll add you. Price wise, are you looking at the VIP packages? Yes, they're on the floor, but what is hoicking the price up is all the added extras rather than just the ticket itself. I think if you don't want a VIP package and accept you're not going to be directly in front of it all, then tickets vary between £46-£80

    Would you like me to add you guys to the facebook convo about the Belfast concert?

    Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience European Tour

    A group of us are looking at going to the Belfast one, which goes on sale on the 5th October. Belfast, however, is on Friday 25th May so can't quite take advantage of the Bank Holiday.

    DUBLIN 2019: An Irish Worldcon August 15-19 2019

    This was the problem in Helsinki as well, which is why I didn't upgrade there, as I can't find my email stating how much I supported by. I'll have to do it online so it goes to Colin who does have access to the database.

    TitanCon 2017: 8-10 Sept - Belfast

    Apart from a vomity coach and soilage fees, nope. Probably not something we should be handing out on the coach, if the sweets live up to the reputation of their fruity source.

    TitanCon 2017: 8-10 Sept - Belfast

    I'm arriving Thursday at 3:15 @ Belfast City and leaving on the Monday at 3:40 also from Belfast City. And no coach tour?!?!?! What will we do without our Irish Goat Songs?

    DUBLIN 2019: An Irish Worldcon August 15-19 2019

    Well there we go. Only reason I didn't upgrade in Helsinki was because I couldn't remember how much I'd actually paid supporting wise.

    DUBLIN 2019: An Irish Worldcon August 15-19 2019

    Will be at both. I've bought my membership for Dublin and just need to upgrade my supporting for TitanCon.....which I will probably do at TitanCon. Somebody remind me.

    WorldCon Helsinki 2017 - Attendance list p1!

    Right - myself and Wert have been looking at the schedule, and barring any additions of epic coolness that can't possibly be missed, we are looking at going to Tallinn on the Thursday. Obviously, the more the merrier.

    I've done the same, first name/board name. Though considering the first part of my board name IS my first name, I don't know why I bother. lol.

    WorldCon Helsinki 2017 - Attendance list p1!

    Aye - it was like that at LonCon; there was a day where there wasn't anything I felt was (for me) unmissable, so took myself off into London to do Harry Potter touristy stuff. I'm currently using the app to try and figure out where I want to be and when.

    @Little Miss Sunshine You're welcome. Of course, now it needs updating. lol Suomenlinna Tour (Wed) SamanthaofHodorsfield Buckwheat Little Miss Sunshine All Men Must Rhyme Fragile Bird Adz of CCAA Peadar Pebble + Mr Pebble Padraig/Pod Johan Sporre (via twitter) Tenalpia Theda Baratheon (maybe) Mormont (maybe) @Werthead and @Fragile Bird coolios. I do hate the idea of missing a day of the Con, but as you say, I'm unlikely to have a chance in the near future of going. I was going to suggest (if we went), visiting Olde Hansa restaurant which is apparently a touristy medival restaurant and a lot of fun, but looking at the menu, the prices are a tad on the expensive side.

    WorldCon Helsinki 2017 - Attendance list p1!

    Now that the schedule has come out, is there anybody interested in day-tripping it over to Tallinn? It would take an entire day, so the reccomendation is to do it before or after the Con, but I don't have that luxury, arriving on the 8th and leaving on the 14th, so, during the Con it is. I don't have any firm date yet, because honestly, whichever day I pick I'll miss something, so if there is anybody else interested with a particular day they can go on, I'll go with that. If not, I'll just be billy-no mates and go on my own.

    WorldCon Helsinki 2017 - Attendance list p1!

    This year I've flown with Lufthansa; for Archipelacon I flew with FinnAir, and both are reasonably priced, though I am flying into/out of UK rather than Greece. Have you tried a flight into Tallinn, Estonia? Ferries into Helsinki seem reasonably priced and don't take that long.

    Awesome! We'll have a nice little group going.

    WorldCon Helsinki 2017 - Attendance list p1!

    If you're flying in Wednesday, probably not. Worth giving them an email though - as they say, if enough people ask for a different day, they'll put another tour on.

    WorldCon Helsinki 2017 - Attendance list p1!

    It is part of the Con - they're offering it in Progress Report 5. Let me go find the deets. .....some time later..... Wednesday morning, before the opening ceremony - another chance to visit suomenlinna The historic sea fortress Suomenlinna (Finnish for "Finnish fort") originally called Sveaborg (Swedish for "Swedish fort"), is one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites in Finland. The edifice inspired the young George RR Martin to try his hand at writing historical fiction. We are arranging a private guided tour of the fortress on the morning of Wednesday August 9th. You will have plenty of time to return to Helsinki, register at the Con and witness the opening ceremony. The tour will cost about 11euros, not including the ferry charges to and from the island. Please email [email protected] to reserve a place. It is possible to arrange the tour in several languages, if enough people are insterested. Include your language preferences in the email. At the time of writing, available languages are: Finnish, Swedish, English, German, French, Russian, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Norwegian, Estonian, Polish and Czech. If you would like to attend the tour on another day, please let us know. If enough people are interested we will arrange tours as needed.
