I'd heard of it but was led to believe it was predominantly a sci-fi convention so I never really bothered with it.

I went to Eastercon in 05, when it was at Walsall. It was good fun, in a small hotel with a large bar. Unlike fantasycon they ran multiple sessions at one time (much like Derby) so it was busy and hurried but the sessions were well done.

back then it was mainly sci-fi with a bit if fantasy
