Latest from the BiCon Team

BiCon takes place at Leeds Trinity University in the lovely (and large) village of Horsforth from 31st July until the 2nd August. Whilst residential bookings have now closed, there are day tickets available throughout BiCon.

Session ideas are coming in, and the slots are filling up nicely. If you have submitted a session idea and not yet returned the questionnaire, please do so to confirm your session. If you wish to submit a session, please email [email protected]

We have some very exciting sessions confirmed including Body Painting, Making your own BiCon mini-zine, Safer Sex Supplies – Feel and Fondle, and we have a fabulous room for fun and games and the more active sessions!

Some sessions do require people to bring things with them to get the most out of them. Jogging for beginners requires people to bring trainers, t-shirt and jogging bottoms or shorts and sports bra if required if they wish to take part. Improving Shibari requires people to bring rope and there will be a Fat Femme Clothes Swap, so bring your unwanted femme finery so that it can find a new home (and pick yourself up something spectacular in the process).

There will also be a raffle to win the Budget BDSM tool kit (all proceeds going to the Equalities Fund), and the Femme Swap has also asked that people donate to the Equalities Fund (£2 min). There are also the fabulous BiCon badges, which will be on sale at the Registration desk as soon as BiCon opens. They are £1 each and are enamel pin badges. There are only 200, and they are on a first come, first served basis.

There will be a dedicated craft space and if people wish to demo their craft, that would be fantastic. The BiCon Ball theme is ‘Favourite Fictional Character’ (dressing up totally optional), and our fabulous BiCon djs will be hitting the decks on Friday and Saturday for all your boogie needs.

We can’t wait to see you all for what promises to be another superb BiCon!
