Eastercon Wiki

Eastercons typically run programme from the Friday through to the Monday.

However some people will be on-site from the Thursday to help set up, others will just show up the night before so they don't have to travel on Good Friday and so that they can socialise with friends and be ready for the start of the convention.

So a Thursday evening meal is often organised, where those who have been setting up the convention, and those who have arrived early can socialise. Often this is served buffet-style and each person is responsible for paying for their own meal and drinks.

It is also a good opportunity to grab people to help stuff Membership packs or help laminate Badges.
