Bicon 2003 > Why Come? > Entertainment
The ents at BiCon this year are looking pretty good! On the Friday night, we'll be running a disco from 9pm until 2am, and on Saturday we'll be having a Cabaret Night, starting at 8pm. It is an important feature of BiCon that members of the bi community have an opportunity to showcase their talents, and accordingly the DJ-ing/performances on both of these nights will feature some of the best bi talent from our own ranks. There'll be dance, comedy and music galore!
A lot of people have asked about the BiCon Faerie Tale Ball. This will be a truly glittering affair, and you can rest assured there will be something for everyone. It will begin at 8pm and end - in honour of Cinderella - at midnight. Bring your own pumpkin*.
Worried about what to wear? Don't be - dressing up is not compulsory and jeans and a T-shirt is absolutely fine and groovy! If you do decide to dress up, though, then you have a huge range of options. Perhaps you'd like to come in good old fancy dress, as a specific faerie tale character or a generic elf, for example. Or maybe you're the traditional type who prefers to see the gentlemen in black tie and the ladies in evening gowns (or indeed, vice versa). Or then again, maybe you have some favourite fetish or club gear that makes you feel a million dollars. You can do/wear/be whatever you want; the only limit is the horizon of your imagination.
There will be a prize for Best Costume. We realise 'best' is somewhat subjective and we're sorry about that. It will mean something like 'most effort gone into a costume' rather than 'prettiest little thing'. But let's face it, it's just a bit of fun. No correspondence will be entered into etc. etc.
We don't want to give too much away at this stage but we can tell you that the music will be varied and there will be a dancefloor. There will also be plenty of areas to sit and chill out, and sundry other amusements to while away the enchanted hours.
All in all then, we have an exciting programme lined up for this August bank holiday weekend. Let's have the party of a lifetime...
Looking forward to seeing you there!

* No, you don't really have to bring a pumpkin, as the accommodation is close by. Bring one if you really really need one though, as the BiCon 2003 team regrets that due to licensing regulations, we are unable to provide them.
