AlbaCon AlbaCon 2021

#1
Evening folks.

Wanted to let you know about our plans for AlbaCon 2021.

Firstly, the dates are the 2nd & 3rd of October.
Secondly, our charity partner this year are Penumbra.
  • Penumbra are a mental health charity and all funds that we raise for them will go towards providing support for suicide prevention specifically for teenagers and young adults.
  • All money we raise through ticket sales, direct donations and frankly any other method we can (legally!) use will be given to Penumbra.
Thirdly, RPG submissions for 2021 are now open. If you’re able to help us by hosting RPGs this year please fill in the form here - https://albacon.co.uk/host-a-rpg/

We will once again have a dedicated Discord server for the convention and have refined the structure we had last year based on feedback received and from attending other online events since AlbaCon 2020. We’ve also made a series of changes to the way event bookings are made which we think will improve the overall user experience.

As ever if you have questions, let me know!
