What kind of convention will it be?
A number of events these days are primarily commercial affairs; they're designed for people to buy merchandise from stallholders, and to buy autographs and photos. Nothing wrong with that, but Bedford Who Charity Con 3 is rather different: we'll be presenting a more traditional style of convention. The day will be a mixture of interviews on stage, signing sessions, the opportunity to chat to the guests and to have your photo taken with them. The emphasis is on giving you a fun, relaxed and informal day that you'll really enjoy -- and to raise money for charity.
Bedford Who Charity Con 2 raised a fantastic £2592 for Bedford Foodbank. Thanks to all who came!
