The Worcester team have just published the full line-up of evening entertainments for this year’s BiCon.
They promise a packed programme of live music, djs, films and karaoke each evening from 9pm. The bar will be open from 6pm, and there’ll also be a large non-licenced space for chatting, playing board games, eating your takeaway or just chilling out. Hot & cold drinks and light snacks will be available from the vending machines here too.
Don’t forget the spectacular BiCon ball on the Saturday. Full details of the theme, ideas for your costume and a full list of the whole ents schedule can be found on their website.
