Innominate is the 68th British National Science Fiction Convention (Eastercon) which is being held over the Easter weekend 14 to 17 April 2017, at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel.

Our outstanding guests of honour are author Pat Cadigan, artist Judith Clute and fan and convention runner Colin Harris.

Eastercon is a volunteer run, not-for-profit convention run by fans for fans, authors, artists, publishers, scientists, academics and geeks in general to get together, network have fun, and above all share a love of science fiction, fantasy, horror and other geeky things. As this website grows please explore it and sign up for our social media updates.

We look forward to meeting you in Easter 2017

  • Through various opportunities we now have a limited number of Single Twin and Queen standard rooms available at the Convention rate.

  • The Hotel is nearly out of Double, Single and Family standard rooms. However there are still twin standard rooms available along with executive twin & double. We recognise that these will not be suitable for all and if you cannot book a standard room there are four nearby hotels as overflow. The two closest hotels - the Genting & Crowne Plaza hotels are both more expensive than our Executive rooms, but do offer more choice. Further out but still within a 10 minute walk are the Novotel Hotel and Arden Hotel & Leisure Club and both offering rates under £100 for a single. There are cheaper rates at other hotels - but these are not within walking distance of the Metropole.
  • Shoreline of Infinity's Event Horizon - Live Science Fiction at Innominate Eastercon 2017

    We're looking for talented science fictioners to perform at a showcase event at Innominate Eastercon 2017. It could be a reading, drama, poetry, music, demonstration, stand-up, dance, juggling - any kind of performance, lasting 10 mins - obviously with a science fiction & fantasy theme.

    Send me a link to a video or audio performance of what you do - don't worry about the tech quality, as long as the performance shines through. We'll pick a good selection for the Event Horizon.

    Deadline for submissions - Sunday 5th March. Send your video or audio link to: editor@shorelineofinfinity.com  Any questions to the same address.

  • Our access page - available directly from "More" or as a link from the "About Us" page has been updated to include more details for those with access needs.
  • Our next membership rate rise will be in the new year. Join now to get lower rates from our Membership Page.
  • We do not have access to our venue during the day on Thursday for setting up. This means we are even more in need of volunteers to help build the convention on Thursday evening and Friday morning. If you want to volunteer - but not during the con itself, have never volunteered before, or are curious about con-running this is a great opportunity to get involved and see how a convention works. No experience is necessary and we can find jobs for everybody! Regular volunteers are of course welcome. If you can help please visit our Volunteer Page.
  • We are supporting a group raising funds to fund midwives in Afghanistan. If you want to know more about the group or our involvement for to our Afghan Mothers Page
