Accio and Lumos Fandom Events UpdatesConventions
We have two pieces of news today regarding the Harry Potter Conventions that are to take place in the near future.
First, Accio 2005, the UK Harry Potter Conference, has announced that, due to demand, they will have day tickets available to the public for Saturday, July 30th. The announcement says:
"Day tickets for Accio will be valid from 9am to 6pm. During this time, you will be able to join the conference and therefore have the opportunity to listen to presentations, pester panelists, and talk about Harry Potter with other like-minded people.
Included in the Â£75 admission fee will be the Accio welcome pack, a CD copy of the conference proceedings together with mid-morning and afternoon tea and coffee and a sandwich lunch."
There was also a call for entries in the original short story competition. For details, check the Accio website. Accio UK takes place July 29th through the 31st at the University of Reading in the UK.
Lumos 2006, the Harry Potter Symposium to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, in July of next year has issued a "Call for Proposals", or topics to be discussed at the convention.
