From the announcement:
The Britcon Trade Show will be returning to the now-familiar surroundings of the Barnes Wallis Building in Manchester (right next to Manchester Piccadilly Station) over the weekend of 9th-10th August 2014.
Reserve a ticket in advance and we will let you in for free – yes, that's right, no entry cost at all! We know there is a recession out there, so we want you to be able to spend all of your hard earned cash with our loyal traders.
Registering in advance means you will also receive up to date information on who will be there, what new products they will have on show, and whether they have any Britcon special offers – so not only do you not have to pay to get in, the stuff you buy may even be cheaper too!
