The focus of the day will be to celebrate what it means to be a Nerdfighter with special guests, musical performances from Nerdfighters, sit down dinner and many different activities. Among other opportunities to support charitable causes, there will be a raffle with all proceeds going to the Foundation to Decrease Worldsuck. Prizes include copies of An Imperial Affliction signed by John Green and cool Nerdfighter Art plus many other exciting prizes. Some of the Nerdfighter Art will also be available for purchase on a pay-what-you-want basis.
This year, there is going to be a live Art Assignment, a Sing-Along, a workout session à la ‘Fitness for Nerds’, an Open Mic segment in the evening, and lots of other awesome group activities.
Con for Awesome is going to be a wonderful opportunity to celebrate Nerdfighteria and its relationship with AFC Wimbledon and to have a great time with fellow Nerdfighters, while simultaneously decreasing Worldsuck in various ways. Check our homepage for more announcements!
We advise you bring cash
Card payments can be taken for drinks at the bar, however all charity activities, including the bake sale and raffle are cash only. There are no cash withdrawal facilities on the premises, so we advise that you bring cash with you to avoid missing out on anything.
We encourage everyone to bring snacks to share in a group picnic. You can also buy a small selection of savoury snacks provided by AFC Wimbledon or get something at the bake sale.
Alternatively, there are some small cafes and a fish & chip shop around the corner where you can have lunch during lunch break.
Check our Charity Opportunities
We are providing you with many opportunities to decrease world suck so please head to our Charity Opportunities page to check them out before you arrive.
