Ahead warp factor two for K/S UK! We are delighted to announce that KiSmet is on for 2020. A fan-run, not-for-profit convention celebrating Kirk and Spock and K/S.
A whole weekend of Kirk and Spock! Sharing the obsession by watching vids, reading zines, entering competitions, playing games, puzzling over quizzes, meeting up with old friends and making lots of new ones. Oh, and always & forever talking about K/S, thinking about K/S and even dreaming about K/S - if you’re lucky!
We are planning a packed programme of fun, games, quizzes, watching vids, show & tell and panel discussions on our favourite subject. If you would like to run a panel or do a show & tell please see the Panels & Talks tab for more information.
On Saturday night will host the infamous 'Great KiSmet Quiz' where teams will pit their wits and brains to win wonderful prizes. Who knows the most about Trek and K/S? We will find out. There will be other quizzes and games, including the caption contest, and other fun competitions throughout the weekend.
We will have an art show, competition and auction, with amazing works to drool over. If you would like to display your artistic or crafty talents see the Art tab
We hope to have a small zine lending library available, subject to friendly folk bringing zones along to loan!
For items you might want to buy and sell we are suggesting a ‘pop-up shop’(which will actually look more like a table). This is somewhere for anyone who wants to sell items can display them. More about this under the Buying & Selling tab.
There will be a raffle with lots of lovely prizes. All proceeds from the raffle will go to the con charity, The British Lung Foundation. See the Con Charity tab.
In addition, we’ll be enjoying great vids throughout the weekend: see the Vidding tab for details of how to enter our vid contest.
There will be a cosplay contest over dinner on Saturday night. See the Cosplay tab.
The venue is the same as previous cons. The LECC has had some major refurbishment over the last 2 years and is still a great place to hold the con. Please see the Venue tab for more info.
Membership is all-inclusive, covering the cost of accommodation, and all meals and hot beverages for the weekend. Please see the Membership tab for details on how to register.
If you really can’t make it in person (why has no one invented beaming yet?) it would be lovely if you could support the con, and ultimately the charity, and you will receive goodies & the con zine. Please see the Membership tab.
Your KiSmet organisers are Jess and Fiona. We have organised classic cons in the past and both have experience in the real world of organising events, so please be assured you are in safe hands. We have both been fans of classic trek and Bill Shatner for over 40 years. Last, but by no means least, we would like to say a HUGE thank you to Anne and Chrissy for running the previous KiSmet cons and setting up the original website. We are only here due to their hard work and dedication – we salute you!
