  • MidCon is a board-games convention held in the comfort of a top class hotel in Derby, UK, which is organised by a group of independent amateur board games enthusiasts. MidCon 2022 is set to be the 43rd and will take place November 4 - 6 at the Derby Mickleover Court Hotel.  

  • The convention is open for bookings for 2022. You may register online via the UK Boardgames Conventions Homepage or by following the instructions in the Booking section (not the booking form - currently N/A) in the left-hand margin.

  • It is not necessary for people who attend MidCon to stay at the Derby Mickleover Court Hotel but if you do want to take advantage of the convenience of staying at the hotel where the con is held, we have negotiated special MidCon rates, which include breakfast. More details are on Booking page.

  • If you are not already on the MidCon mailing list and wish to be so, send an e-mail via the Queries link in the left hand margin.

  • MidCon provides a very comfortable setting to play your favourite board games and to try out new ones; to meet old friends and find new ones. The emphasis is on relaxation and enjoyment. Most years we have more than 240 people present although numbers were down in 2021 because of Covid.

  • As well as the gaming, there is the Spirit Games stall for new games and the Bring & Buy for second-hand games, plus the real ale bar and the famous MidCon quiz.

  • For any questions contact the MidCon committee click here
