BiCon is over, and you can no longer register. The information below is provided for historical interest only.

We don't make a profit from BiCon, but we base our prices on how much it costs us per person who attends (£194.10 – £141 for the university space, £53.10 for ents, creche, publicity and other background bits).

Not everyone can afford the full cost, which is why we have had sliding scale prices since the first BiCons – meaning that reduced financial security isn't a reason attendees will be excluded.

Until 2019, ticket prices were decided by income. However, income does not dictate how much spare money someone has. Children, disabilities, housing insecurity… they all come with extra costs. This year, ticket price will be decided by disposable income – the money we spend on little extras that people on the poverty line don't have access to. Things like coffee shop beverages, concert tickets, days out, tattoos, holidays, shopping trips…

BiCon has never asked for proof of income from anyone. We do ask for everyone to go for a higher band if they can reasonably afford it, as this is what makes the difference between another attendee being able to attend, or potentially missing out.

One-day tickets are available for single full days at BiCon (Friday or Saturday). A Friday 'day' ticket also covers Thursday evening, and a Saturday 'day' ticket also covers Sunday morning.

Tickets for children are £30 if they are sharing a bedroom with you, or £50 if they have their own bedroom.
