All sold out and raring to go

Apologies for the radio silence. We do have jobs to go to you know.

But not next weekend. Next weekend is LOBSTERCON XVIII! Wooo!!

Sadly all the weekend tickets are now gone, but don’t despair too much – if you’re local, or even if you just like long day trips, we will be selling day tickets at the event for £8 each. Just head to the welcome desk by the hotel reception and ask the friendly volunteers.

See you by the sea!

Non-residential tickets now available!

Good news for those who missed the rooms (or prefer to stay elsewhere…): weekend gaming-only tickets are now available via our shop.

The price is £20 for 3 days of gaming, and includes entry to the con as well as access to all events, including the wonderful Saturday night raffle. You are in it, but will you win it? Be there at 10pm sharp on the Saturday to find out!

For those with a room already, you can extend your stay on Thursday or Sunday nights via the shop, but only until this Friday (4 Oct), so get in quick.

Hotel sold out, but gaming tickets available from next week!

As ever our room packages sold out lickety split. However, don’t despair if you missed out! Next week we will add gaming-only weekend tickets for those who live local or want to stay elsewhere.

The cost will be £20 and give you access to the con and all events for 3 days of wonderful gaming goodness.

If you already booked a room but wish to extend your stay to Thursday or Sunday nights, the good news is that there is space on both days so grab them while you can via our shop.

Single occupancy now available

This time we have experimented with only allowing singles and double occupancy rooms to be bought first. Feedback from previous years suggested many couples and those wishing to share couldn’t get a room in time so we wanted to make sure the most people possible could manage to stay at the venue. It seems to have gone well and we’re looking set for a great con!

There are (at the time of writing) 14 twin rooms left, and they are now available to book for single occupancy. Details can be found on the ticket page.

Sunday night allright

We have a slightly discounted rate for those wishing to stay on Sunday night, which is available to add in the shop. Note that the con officially ends at 6pm Sunday, but gaming can continue. On Monday we don’t have access to the ballroom but the Derwent Room (upstairs by reception) is free.

We are live!

Phew. After much stress, and starting again from scratch, the website is back up and running, and ready to take your bookings!

We have moved towards a package deal this time, as it’s easier for us and fairer for everyone. Your ticket will give you entry to the con, plus a room for two nights at the hotel. At first, we will only be selling single rooms, and doubles/twins for double occupancy. This helps us fill as may of the spaces as possible, and lets more people join in the fun!

We’ll be opening up the tickets for single occupancy on Thursday, so keep checking back.

Hope to see you there!
