|1900||Dining at the Ritz* and Cosplay Contest|
Another chance to win prizes in our team quiz event.
A screening of a selection of Good Omens fanvids, including some not seen online.
“Queerbaiting” is when writers (whether in books, TV, or movies) hint at a queer romance in order to attract an LGBT audience, but shy away from actually depicting it in order to avoid alienating a homophobic audience. Does Good Omens fall prey to this trope?
|1000||Panel: The Ineffable World of Fanfiction|
There has been an explosion of Good Omens fanfiction in the last few months. What trends have emerged and which tropes are popular? This is also an opportunity to recommend your favourites to help other convention members wade through the thousands of new fics.

|1500||Armageddon, feat. An Ineffable Musical Parody|
The official close of the convention, featuring prizes and a special musical performance.
|1700||Depart for Tadfield|
This is a Good Omens convention, so clearly Armageddon is not really the end! If you’re joining us for our outing to Tadfield, meet in the Lounge for a 5pm departure.
In addition to the formally scheduled programme, we have the following activities on offer:
- Art Show
The art show will be available for viewing until Sunday morning, with both originals and prints. We welcome arts and crafts of all sorts. The show will consist of pieces brought by members to display, with some available to buy through the con auction. Please check out the art show page to find details of how you can submit work to the show and how the auction will work.
We have two games created especially for the convention that will be available to play throughout the event.
Competitions available to take part in at any time include a caption contest, a mini story and art challenge, and a treasure hunt. Prizes are available and will be awarded at the close of the convention.
- Photo Ops
We know lots of people will attend the convention in costume - and not necessarily only for the Saturday evening Cosplay Contest! To help with your photo ops we'll have an assortment of props available.
- Arts & Crafts Corner
Themed colouring pages and craft activities are available in the Lounge throughout the convention.
- Reading Library
Whenever you need some quiet time, we have an assortment of novels by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, as well as Good Omens fanfiction recommended by other convention members, available at all times to be enjoyed in the Lounge, or taken back to your room or (if the weather surprises us) into the extensive grounds of the conference centre.
