Picocon in London on the 18th of February 2017

Picocon is the annual Science Fiction & Fantasy convention run by the Imperial College Science Fiction and Fantasy Society, ICSF. It usually takes place on a Saturday in February, in Imperial College’s Student Union. We try not to clash with other conventions around the same time.
It is a small (hence the name), affordable and convenient convention for students and fans in or near London. Registration opens at 9am, with the first scheduled events kicking off at around 9:30. The schedule concludes in the evening.

At a Picocon you will encounter:
– Guests of Honour doing talks and panels
– The Destruction of Dodgy Merchandise, typically with liquid nitrogen and an enormous hammer. (Donations welcome!)
– Stalls selling books, ICSF t-shirts, and other stuff
– Quiz and silly games
– Student Union bar
