Wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey, our TARDIS got into some strange vortex… and it seems that the second day of Whomanikon dispersed through all of time and space.
Unfortunately, we won’t meet in Kraków on 26th of November. On this day Polish Comic Con in Kielce will take place and we came to conclusion that it wouldn’t be fair to compete with it – new events need all support they can get. 😉 One of the decisive factors was also the fact that the bus station in Kielce is… strangely similar to a Dalek spaceship. So better safe than sorry.
On the bright side, we can invite you instead for the second edition of Whomanikon. It will take place on
1-2 April 2017
in Kraków. So let the preparations begin!
It doesn’t mean, though, that for the next Whovian meeting you need to wait ’till the next year – on the contrary, in 2016 there will be plenty of opportunities to party.
We invite you to:
Katowice in August for Serialis – International Festival of Television Series
Łódź in September for Kapitularz
Kraków in October for Imladris
Lublin in November for Falkon and Kielce for Polish Comic Con.
We are going to be there and represent Whomanikon, Gallifrey.pl, and Polish fandom – we can’t tell you in what form, because…
Whomanikon is a Doctor Who convention organised for and by Polish Whovians.
Its first day took place on 12th March 2016. Over 500 people gathered in Cracow to listen and talk about their shared passion.
Our program included:
- 21 lectures on Whoniverse and Whovians,
- Doctor Who trivia competitions,
- cosplay contest,
- children’s playground,
- market stalls,
- Whovian meet-up over cookies and tea.
Even the TARDIS was present, as well as numerous cosplayers with whom every participant wanted to take a picture.
We enjoyed every minute of it so we decided to make it last longer!
The 2nd Whomanikon will take place on 1–2 April 2017.
