What is membership?

We do not sell tickets to Octocon. Instead we sell membership for our convention.

If you are a member of Octocon you are entitled to attend any event that we are running.

If an event has an additional cost, due to extra materials or similar, that cost will need to be paid when you sign up for the event.

What does a membership of Octocon get you?

Once you become a member you will have the right to access the public areas of the convention such as the panel rooms, the Trade Hall and the convention bars. Note that such access will be limited by local laws where relevant.

By becoming a member in advance of the event, you will also be kept informed about what is going on at the event, and have the opportunity to shape what happens at Octocon.

Who is entitled to the concessionary rate?

The concessionary rate for membership is available to students, pensioners, people who are 21 and under, and benefit qualified individuals. Proof will be required at the event, and concessionary status must apply during the event.

Children under the age of 13 are entitled to free membership, but must be accompanied by a guardian who has their own membership.
