Change of Venue for Feb 2018

For our upcoming convention in Feb 2018, we are changing venue to The Pineapple on St George’s Road.

Hello everyone. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have had to change venue. Unfortunately Rip Roar Comedy on Union Street have recently closed their doors, and as a result will be unable to host us in 2018. We were notified of this set back Tuesday evening this week, and over the last 4 days have been working tirelessly to secure an alternative venue.

This has however been a blessing, as we have been able to secure an excellent alternative venue that actually allows us to keep our costs the same, but improve our offering to you at no increase in charge.

In addition to offering everything that our previous hosts were able to offer, The Pineapple boasts an actual pub downstairs with a fully stocked bar. Significantly improved parking options both for visitors to the convention and for traders, better facilities for traders in general, separate rooms for tournament play, more cosy, better lit and warmer surroundings, some admin space so we can look after you better on the day, and an easier to find front door!

An added bonus, located just off Park Street, they remain within walking distance of all hotels and car parks that folks may have already booked.

We would like to place on record our thanks to Rip Roar for their help launching Concord over the last two years, but also our sincere thanks to The Pineapple for being such great people to work with on short notice, and providing such a good alternative venue. We look forward to hosting a great event with them in February.

If anyone has any queries or concerns about this change, or questions about the new venue in general, please contact us via the contact form on our web page, the communication options on our page here, or via email on
