Last chance to book for British Fantasy Awards Banquet

The deadline has been extended until the end of this week to book your place at the British Fantasy Awards Banquet on the Sunday afternoon, 30 September 2012, at FantasyCon. Always the grand finale of the convention, this is when the British Fantasy Society will announce the winners of this year’s prestigious British Fantasy Awards. Once bookings are closed we cannot take any further reservations.

The Banquet will be held in the Royal Albion Hotel’s Regency Lounge from 1:00pm until around 4:00pm on 30 September, when it will be followed by the traditional Dead Dog Party in the convention bar. There are only a small number of places remaining, and these will be allocated on a first-come basis.

To book your Banquet meal, please go to: where you will find a full choice of menu and details of how to pay.

Please note that you MUST be a registered attendee of FantasyCon 2012 when you book your Banquet meal, unless you are a British Fantasy Award nominee for this year.

Publishers and individuals who wish to pre-reserve a table should e-mail banquet [at] and supply a list of the ten people that they will have on their table. Each person should have a meal booked and paid for before the table reservation is made.
