The official start time is 9.00am on Friday morning. After that, the con runs continuously through to 6.00pm (and often a bit later if you move to the bar area) on Sunday. People have been known to play games until four in the morning and still make it down in time for breakfast.
£25 per person for the whole weekend, when booked before 1st November, £30 afterwards, and on the door. The day rates are: £15/£15/£10 for Friday/Saturday/Sunday. If you stay at either the Hallmark Hotel or the Hallmark Inn (you don't have to in order to attend the con), the prices are as follows: Hallmark Hotel Accommodation: Bed and breakfast prices of £69 Single; £82 Double / Twin per room per night. These prices also apply to Thursday night and Sunday night. Hallmark Inn Accommodation: Bed and breakfast prices of £56.00 Single; £69.00 Double /Twin per room per night. These prices also apply to Thursday night and Sunday night
The hotel does cater for wheelchair users and has lifts to all floors. We try to keep the gangways clear in the gaming halls but people do have a habit of plonking huge bags of games between tables so if impeded, just ask and we'll clear a passage.
The 41st occurrence of MidCon will take place, as usual, in the comfort of a top class hotel in Derby, UK, just a few weeks after all the hot new games are released at Essen. The emphasis is on playing games rather than buying them (although Spirit Games will be there selling games and there will also be a second-hand games sale). The event lasts from Friday to Sunday and you can register in advance or just bowl-up on the day. If you want to stay at the hotel (the Hallmark or its sister hotel across the road) then reduced room rates are available for those attending the con.
