A Close Shave?

Mon 18th Nov 2002

A Close Shave?Although 2003 sees Octocon take a year's holiday, Several other conventions are planned to fill the void. Here's a press release from one of them...

They Came and Shaved Us

From the people who brought you 'Aliens Stole my Handbag' and 'Damn Fine Con' comes the first 'Fun' convention to be held in Ireland.

They Came and Shaved Us will be running literally non-stop from Friday the 24th of October until Sunday night the 26th. It will be a feast of all things fun, weird and wondrous.

It is a fun convention; there will be lot of running around, very strange discussions and activities, such as eating snake.

Robert Rankin is our Master of Ceremonies and we intend to have an interesting selection of guests and speakers to help us through the weekend. The event will be taking place in Ireland, coincidentally the ancestral home of Sproutlore, which celebrates ten years of existence in 2003.

It is intended to touch upon such subjects as... Victorian late 19th century, H.P. Lovecraft, The League of Gentlemen, Nemesis, Freak Shows, Crowley, Carnival of Horror / Chaos, Escapologists, Ripley's Believe it or Not, Weird Food, Various Show and Tells, Dangerous Sports, OTO, Magick and even have a dawn trip to Newgrange, a neolithic burial ground.
