People who go to BiCon create the programme by offering sessions and entertainment. There are usually 70 or more sessions and entertainments across the weekend. Not everyone attends all or even any of these sessions, but there is always a wide variety for those who do want to. These sessions are in the form of:

  • Lectures
  • Discussions
  • Workshops
  • Games
  • Crafts

On Thursday there are no sessions. This is a day for everyone to arrive in their own time, get settled in to the accommodation and relax in the evening.

You can collect your keys to your room from 3pm. These will be available from the desk in Barker House Farm which will be well signposted. Head to the parking available at Cartmel (directions can be found here) and you will be able to find us from there.

Friday is our first full day of sessions. There are multiple workshops running at any one time, meaning that you can pick and choose what you’re interested in. Sessions will last for an hour and fifteen minutes, although you do not have to stay for the full length, there will also be breaks between sessions. The current timetable for Friday is below. Please note: This is very likely to change before BiCon and rooms have not been assigned yet. If you are running one of these workshops and cannot make the time we have assigned for you, please email sessions2019@bicon.org.uk and we can change this for you. If you need this timetable in a different format, please e-mail us at sessions2019@bicon.org.uk and we can send this to you.

Saturday is another full day of sessions. The current timetable for Saturday is below. Please note: This is very likely to change before BiCon and rooms have not been assigned yet. If you are running one of these workshops and cannot make the time we have assigned for you, please email sessions2019@bicon.org.uk and we can change this for you.
