HandyCon 5 – Saturday Sold Out!

Saturday Sold Out!

We are now at full capacity for the Saturday and are no longer selling tickets that include Saturday (3, 2 or 1 day). We will not be selling tickets on the door, so please do not turn up if you do not have a ticket as you will be refused entry.

There are currently still tickets available for Friday and Sunday, but be sure to book ASAP as we cannot guarantee that these will not sell out.


Food & Drink

HandyCon 5 menus are now here!


We have special HandyCon menus available:

– HandyCon 5 Standard Menu:

There are also various snacks and fruit available from the main hotel and HandyCon bars.

Free tea, coffee and iced water will be provided for attendees, available from the refreshment stations by the HandyCon bar and on the first floor break room (we encourage to bring their own travel mugs to cut down on waste). The bar also serves Starbucks Coffee and various soft and alcoholic drinks.

Drinks vouchers will also be available for purchase:

£15 for 5 alcoholic drink vouchers

Harassment Policy

HandyCon is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable gaming environment for everyone who attends. Please behave respectfully to all other attendees, ensuring all can feel safe and enjoy themselves regardless of gender, gender identity, sexuality, appearance, race or religion.

Physical and verbal harassment will not be tolerated and the organisers reserve the right to take appropriate action including warning the offender or expulsion from the convention with no refund, and in some cases informing the police.

Some examples of harassment include:

  • Offensive verbal comments
  • Explicit sexual images or references
  • Deliberate intimidation
  • Unwanted attention or following of persons
  • Unwanted recording or photography
  • Sustained disruption of games or activities
  • Innappropriate physical contact
  • Unwelcome attention, including sexual remarks, jokes or taunting, leering, staring or suggestive gestures

To report harassment: If a request to stop behaviours does not get the desired result or there are continued problems with one gamer, please report the problem to a member of the HandyCon team.

We also run the ‘Ask for Angela‘ scheme which allows anyone to discreetly approach a member of the HandyCon team and ask for assistance.
