Here's a list of frequently asked questions regarding J-Con in an attempt to help you out before the event!
Feel free to suggest more questions to add to this using the contact page! ^_^
Q: Will I be able to buy J-Con Tickets on the day or do I have to pre-book?
A: YES! You can buy tickets on the door. The only reason you won't be is if we sell-out beforehand. If this is looking likely, we shall put up plenty of warnings on here and on the Facebook page. The only drawback is you will have to queue behind the people who already have their tickets so beat the queue - buy it before the day. ^_^
Q: Can I buy a Friday-Only ticket?
A: If you wish to attend on the Friday night only, you don't need a ticket! You can simply pay on the door! The price for Friday Night only is £10.
Q: Is there a cash point at Riverside?
A: City 17 will be providing a cash point at the event. There is also a cash point just up the road. However, we still recommend you bring plenty of loose cash anyway as with any convention.
Q: I'm disabled and require a carer to be with me at J-Con. How can you assist me?
A: We'll happily provide your carer with a free pass for the event and send it with your ticket(s). The Riverside is very well catered for with regards to disabilities, with ramps, stair-lifts etc.
Q: Do I have to come in cosplay?
A: Nope. Wear whatever you want. If you do come in cosplay, it can whatever you want it to be providing it follows the rules on the 'J-Con Saturday' Page. We find 70% come in cosplay, 30% don't. ^_^
Q: What are the prices on the Door?
A: The prices on the Door are the same as buying online, minus the postage and fees cost. Currently this means: Friday only £10, Saturday only £15 and Two-Day £20.
Q: Is there proper food available?
A: There are several vendors selling good quality food. We offer as broad a range as possible and try to cater for specialist diets. However, we cannot guarantee this as it all depends on what vendors are able to attend J-Con. There are also several local Fast Food outlets nearby.
Q: What time is J-Con?
A: Friday: J-Con opens at 6.30pm and closes at 10.30pm.
Saturday: J-Con opens at 9am for Fast Track Tickets and 10am for everyone else. J-Con closes at 6.30pm.
Q: Can I bring my own food?
A: Yes of course! There are tables and chairs to eat at near the food hatch so feel free.
Q: Do children get in free?
A: Under 12's get into J-Con free of charge! Under 14's must have an adult with them.
