There has been a lot of thought and discussion regarding this decision, also monitoring of news and social media and it all boils down to one thing.
Can we put on a good, fun, safe convention for all?
Artists, traders, public, staff, performers…..All deserve the best we can do.
The uncertainties and worries that people have mean we can’t do this.
Personally, l hate the word CAN’T, when I was first told I can’t launch a convention, I could have listened and explored no further. Instead over the years a good convention has grown.
However we CAN’T put any person at risk in any way shape or form.
So Tatcon 7 (2020 convention) will run in February 2021 and Tatcon 8 (2021 convention) will be moved a couple of months to run in October (1st – 3rd October 2021).
All deposits and monies paid, artists, traders or ticket sales will be carried over to February 2021 automatically.
If however you can’t make the February date, let us know and we will be happy to move your booking to October should you wish.
We will be contacting all artists and traders over the coming weeks with further information, however feel free to message us with any specific questions.
From the bottom of our hearts we thank everybody over the years that have helped Tatcon grow into what it has become.
We wish you all the best in health and happiness and look forward to seeing you soon.
Pat, Daz, Kerry & Team Tatcon.
