You can no longer book accommodation and tickets for the Victory Ball.

If you are prevented from participating in the Victory Ball or if you no longer need accommodation, do contact us at info@diacon-alley.co.uk and we'll try and find you a buyer. If you forgot to book accommodation or a ball ticket, contact us and we'll put you in contact with a potential seller.

We can of course still take memberships until 16 July.

So! Having group-ordered tickets, we now have a couple of spare Adult ones! (Ie: two sets of tickets for the whole weekend, four tickets in total.) Anybody want a ticket? We'll meet you at the cinema, if so, tomorrow night; comment here or pm me if you'd like one/both.

You'll be sitting with fantastic people! (And me.) And we are all very friendly and I will be wearing a really cool t-shirt!

Hello! My name is Vixx and I'm hoping someone here can help.

I bought tickets to this convention, and for the Ball as well, and now can't go to either since I have to stay here in Canada. However, I am being refused a refund for it. It sucks because I thought I read when I bought the tickets that refunds would be available less a processing fee. Apparently I was mistaken. Sooo, now I'm out 70+ pounds ish which is a lot more when converted to Canadian.

What I'm hoping is that someone will purchase them off me and I can just request to have them converted to someone else's name, which they said they can do. Does anyone need a ticket? I'll sell both for cheaper than what you can purchase through the site.

Soooo... anyone need any last minute tickets? I mean it when I say I'll sell them cheap, because otherwise I get nothing for them.

If you or someone you know is interested, please pass on my info. I can be reached via email at alieandvixx (at) gmail.com. Please spread the word to anyone in the UK who was maybe waffling on going but didn't want to spend the money.

The subject line seems terribly apropos for Draco's birthday :D

So who wants to see TINY TOM FELTON and TINY DAN RAD and TINY RUPERT GRINT and TINY EMMA WATSON? And who does not care for them but wants to see ALL THE STARS IN THE BRITISH SKY being variously fantastic?

The London IMAX is having a MASSIVE HP marathon, to celebrate the franchise before the very last film. On the Friday night the first four films are shown, and on the Saturday they’ll show the last three.

Cut for detailsCollapse )
I apologise if you've seen a version of this post already :)

I’ve got a programming proposal for Diacon – I think a panel looking at how characterisation of Harry changes according to who he’s paired with, and particular fanon portrayals that spring up around specific ships, would be really interesting. Unfortunately when I read Harry it’s almost exclusively Harry/Draco.

I think this might work best if the panel includes shippers from all the big Harry ships – so Harry/Draco, Harry/Snape, Harry/Hermione, Harry/Ginny etc. In a perfect world we’d have people would be who read more than one of those ships and could talk about the differences, and/or people who read other Harry ships (Luna, Ron, Charlie etc). But anybody who’s interested and willing to be on a panel with PEOPLE WATCHING YOU would be leapt on. Particularly since, as the tone of this probably suggests, I don’t have many fixed ideas. If someone wanted to do this with me and change the emphasis that would be totally fine.

But this is where I’m at now, and moving forward will be difficult without talking it over with other fans.
