Located adjacent to the main Lanyon Building, the Whitla Hall makes it’s return and will be the central hub of Q-Con this year. The foyer will be your first port of call as it is where the MAIN REGISTRATION area will be stationed. Whilst inside, the main hall will be host to plenty of TRADERS AND ARTISTS similar to the Snackbar in previous years.
This familiar one storey building to the side of the Whitla Hall has traditionally been home to RPGs and Wargames however this year we welcome the ever popular COLLECTABLE CARD GAMES that have moved across from the old SU Lounge.
The Peter Froggatt Centre (PFC) is part of the modern section inside the quadrangle of the main Lanyon building. To find the PFC simply enter the quad and head to the building to the left of the Administration building. It's hard to miss, honest.
Inside the PFC we are planning on packing in plenty of activities across all three floors.
Third Floor will hopefully satisfy all your VIDEOGAMING desires as we run casual free play and a selection of competitive console games on everything from the classic consoles to the newest gaming machines. (Of course, if you are interested in VR or PC gaming you can easily find those 5 minutes away in the state of the art Computer Science Building, see below)
Second Floor will be packed with all the best RPGs and a selection of LARPs.
First Floor will hopefully be home to the WARGAMING tables this year.
You might know this building by its old name: Elmwood Learning and Teaching Centre (ELTC) but now-a-days it has been fully refurbished and is the temporary home for the Students’ Union. As well as being the location of the SU Shop, SU Elmwood is where all our ANIME SCREENINGS and ANIME EVENTS will be.
[It may also be a sanctuary for the Starcraft II players who might be holed up in Club Room 5 (TBD).]
The Great Hall at Queen’s is a historic beautiful room filled with unique character and perfect for many occasions and events. This year Q-Con will be bringing its own charm as we offer our extensive BOARDGAMES collection for free-play as well as welcoming local game developers who will be showcasing the newest and coolest additions for your boardgame library.
Cosplayers need not worry as the iconic Elmwood Hall will be the location for COSPLAY EVENTS as usual.
PC Gaming will be returning on the Malone Road in the Computer Science Building. Details and events are still being planned but we will update this information as it becomes available.
The Queen’s Film Theatre is a unique cultural venue with almost 50 years of experience of bringing a high quality film experience to Belfast audiences. The QFT is also a friendly, intimate cinema that values it’s audiences, as without their loyalty, support and interest in our programme, QFT would not be able to exist.
Q-Con attendees will receive a promo code that will enable them to book cinema tickets for just £4.
