Eastercon is the British National SF convention. Held almost every year since 1948, though initially at Whitsun rather than Easter, it has grown to a membership of over a thousand. Until the 1970s it was the only annually occuring convention in the UK. It's been held throughout the British Isles including in London, Liverpool, Glasgow, Brighton, Birmingham in the last ten or fifteen years. It's commonly attended by many continental Europeans and Americans, and tends to be a busy fun convention, with very varied activities.
For a fascinating and detailed look at Eastercon's past, present, and future, please go to the "Eastercon, the British National SF Convention" page that is presided over by Pat McMurray.
