We're now definitely running an extra UnCon event on the night of Saturday 23 October at the splendidly surreal time warp that is the St Aloysius Social Club in Euston.

We're putting together what should be a fun evening of entertainment, including live music and performances, DJs, the great Fortean Times Pub Quiz (prizes galore!) and lots of very cheap beer!

More info will follow when things take definitive shape, but if anyone wants to offer their performing services - it can be anything from music to poetry to strange acts of prestidigitation - then please contact me by email (david_sutton@dennis.co.uk) with details.

Ask your friends, family and pets - we're sure there's a host of Fortean talent out there that needs to be shared... so get in touch!

Better than hanging around some pub until closing time with a bunch of other Forteans discussing the events of the day... oh, hang on...

Bad news - due to various kinds of f***-up, the UnCon evening event is now cancelled. We hope to try and do something along these lines in the future, but it's not happening at UnCon.

Our friends from Hand of Glory records are planning a night of weird music of a fortean sort of bent on the Saturday night, though, and promise cheap tickets for UnCon attendees, so all is not lost. More details when we have them.

Sad

I was getting all excited, too.

Mind you, if there's a bit of a bop, then all is not lost!

Sad news. Is there any chance of some contact details for Hand of Glory records for those of us still interested in playing at such an event?
