London Worldcon bid update

By Petrea Mitchell| April 3, 2010 | 1 Comment

The 2014 UK Worldcon bid site is now fully functional at Their planned dates are August 14th-18th (Thursday-Monday).

Also, we have this from Gary Blog, who attended the launch:

It was a packed house for the launch party here at Eastercon.

Christoper Priest, GOH in 2005, announced the winning city and gave a talk about his attendance at the last London Worldcon in 1965.

Then they showed a music video set to The Clash’s “London Calling” with many clips from movies and TV (more than a few from Doctor Who), most of which showed London being destroyed in one way or another. Quite fun actually.
