schedule

A finalised schedule will be available closer to the time.
  • 10:00 - Bar and exhibition area open. Anyone wishing to sign up for the competitions should also arrive at this time.
  • 10:30 - Competition heats start.
  • 13:00 - Panels start in the main hall. We are hoping to organise at least two Dev panels and there will be one or two other panels during the day. The event will finish off with competition finals on stage followed by the raffle and prize-giving.
  • 20:00 - BarCitizen will commence about this time at a local pub.
With the exception of when the Dev panels are on, we plan to run the competitions and panels concurrently in two separate areas. This will allow attendees to watch whichever interests them more.


Competitions
At BritizenCon this year we will, once again, be running the UK Dogfight Championship! We are also planning to run other types of competitions. The details of which game modes we will be running and how to enter will be available in the next few months.
We will continue to improve and expand this in later years.
We would also like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the Alpha nature of the game and that crashes will most likely happen, we will deal with these as fairly and as promptly as we can on the day.

Exhibitors
We have a small number of exhibitors tables available. If you wish to exhibit at the event, or use a table to showcase your Org or fan project, please contact us through our Contact Form.

Cosplay
There is no cosplay competition this year but the wearing of cosplay is encouraged if you wish to do so. BritizenCon is an Armistice Zone. Attendees must not bring any weapons or anything that looks like a weapon to the event.

Short Film Showcase
If you have a fan film (up to 10 mins) that you wish to be shown at BritizenCon, please put them on YouTube and send us a link through our Contact Form. Ensure that the video is either public or unlisted. All videos will be vetted before being shown.
