BiCon exists as a social gathering, a forum for discussion, and educational space serving the UK bisexual community. The programme of events closes with the BiCon Ball to celebrate the convention's 30th birthday!
Bisexual here is used in the loosest of of terms as an umbrella word encompassing many different identities. The website says that 'bi people, their friends, partners and others with a supportive interest in bisexuality' are all welcome.
You can buy day (from £10) or weekend passes (from £30) and accommodation at the university is available (which will add from £105 upwards to the price of your ticket, covering the whole 4 days).
It's not a cheap event by any means, but there is a sliding scale of costs according to income and some charitable funding that you can apply for.
I think it's very exciting to have something specifically geared towards Bisexual people around these parts, and it has a robust code of conduct to back it up. This is why I can't personally pass up the opportunity to go to my very first BiCon.
Advanced booking to confirm your place (and if you require accomodation) must be completed by Friday 29th June.
Further details are to be found on the website.
