Tekelilicon UK/Europe 2 28-29 January 2023

Tekelilicon 2 will be happening on 28-29 January 2023 at the Bourne End Community Library. (That’s the Bourne End in Buckinghamshire, not the one in Hertfordshire.)

Wakeman Road
Bourne End
Buckinghamshire
SL8 5SX
51.57939 -0.71056

Saturday: 9am-11pm
Sunday: 9am-6pm

The library itself will only be open until lunchtime on Saturday; if you may need to get in after that, give me a shout by PM and I’ll send you my phone number so that you can call to be let in.

The venue is wheelchair-accessible.

There’s no food immediately on site, though we do have the use of the staff fridge, sink and microwave. Outside there are small instances of Morrisons, Marks & Spencer, and Tesco, as well as several restaurants and a Costa.

There’s a charge for parking: last time I paid £4 for all day Saturday, £1 ditto Sunday. Bourne End station (BNE) is about 250m away on the flat. (There are local buses too, but I don’t recommend them.)

I am still in favour of masking.

Suggested donation £25 for one day, £40 for two days, but whatever you can manage is welcome.


original thread starter

There’s a bit of a gap in the calendar of conventions I go to, between Handycon in January (which may not be happening anyway) and Airecon in March. So I’d like to run another Tekelilicon.

The most popular weekends in a poll of the forum regulars were 28-29 January (probably a week after Handycon if it happens) and 25-26 February (two weeks before Airecon). Does anyone have a strong feeling about one or the other? Are there enough people up for it to justify renting the library again?

Either works for me although January usually needs more fun in it.

I’ll just go with the flow and see if I can make it. Hopefully if there are train strikes again they miss the event.

I’d potentially be interested (family commitments permitting). Whereabouts would it be?

Unless someone has a really amazing venue to offer, same as last time: Bourne End Community Library. There’s a car park outside, and a railway station a few minutes’ walk away (trains to Maidenhead).

The room is booked, same hours as last time.

Still fixing the cost but probably about the same as last time. Same arrangements too - supporters welcome, money on the door welcome.

The first Tekelilicon was more fun than really should be legal so I am already looking forward to its sequel!

Just came across this (hello Roger!) - nice to discover another local con :grinning:
I’ll keep the Saturday free, but the last Sunday of the month is usually reserved for the Maidenhead meetup group’s Party Games so I’ll probably be looking after that.
