Olympus 2012

Olympus 2012 is the British National Science Fiction Convention for 2012 - commonly known as Eastercon. It runs from Friday 6th April to Monday 9th April 2012 at the Raddison Hotel at Heathrow.


The guests of honour this year are Paul Cornell, Cory Doctorow, Tricia Sullivan and George RR Martin!

Eastercon continues its mission of opening up and expanding the borders of fandom, encouraging more of an intermingling of streams, of fans of books, comics, anime, movies, TV and audio and trying to bring a mix of new and old into this most satisfying and interactive side of being a fan.

The website is at and you can find details of the con and how to join there - please book your own tickets and let us know in your RSVP or comments below.

Cost: £65/55 for the long weekend (Friday to Monday) and ticket at the door is higher.

Although accommodation is fully booked now, please note that there are likely to be some additional rooms available after the next round of confirmations (though it might be in overflow hotels), so be sure to add your name to the waitlist if you would like a room at the convention hotel.

    Excellent!!! Had loads of fun. Successful networking amongst peers, clients, and fans. Didn't actually get to meet up with anyone from Interplanetary and Space Affairs...or at least if I did, I didn't recognise anyone (sorry). Even had time for a few science panels! One of the best EasterCons that I can remember for a long while.

    Sounds wonderful. I would love to some, even at short notice but I'm dissuaded by the £65/55 entry. Have a good time all.
