Brit Con on May 24th to May 26th, 2013
Web Site: Brit Con – The British are Coming!
Location: Doubletree Park Place by Hilton – 1500 Park Place Blvd., St. Louis Park, MN 55416
Brit Con is the only three day event of its kind dedicated to celebrate BRITISH Science-Fiction, Fantasy & Folklore in Movies, Media & Literature exclusively! It’s held near Minneapolis, MN (not in the UK!) by a clever bunch of Yanks who are active in the Twin Cities’ Science-Fiction & Fantasy community.
We’ll have presentations & panel discussions on a broad range of SF&F topics in British media and literature, complemented by a video room screening the rarely-seen and fondly-remembered. A masquerade, vendor room and those ubiquitous parties round out the things you can enjoy at Brit Con. Plus a few surprises…
Our interests range from Hammer Horror to Harry Potter; Thunderbirds to Torchwood; Primeval to The Prisoner; J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis’ Mythopoeic to Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman’s more modernistic works; Folklore spanning Classic (King Arthur from mythology to Monty Python, and Robin Hood) to Contemporary (the spy-fi of James Bond and Harry Palmer in film, Spooks/MI-5 and The Avengers on the telly, with Danger Man & Danger Mouse for good measure along with the many incarnations of Sherlock Holmes and, of course, Dr. Who) and so much more from “across the pond“!
YOU’LL BE GOBSMACKED BY THE JOLLY GOOD TIME YOU’LL HAVE!
