How Can I Help?

The Ineffable Con is run entirely by volunteers, and making the convention a success is a fandom-wide effort! There are lots of ways that you can contribute:


We may not have staff costs, but everything else costs money! We are operating on a “name your price” basis for registrations, but if you are able to contribute over and above your registration fee, you are most welcome to do so!

We strongly prefer payments through Stripe or bank transfer, but if you really cannot use those methods then we can accept donations through PayPal (if you’re not sure why this is not our preferred method, ask us about the time we had to sue PayPal!)

Volunteer for the Convention

There are lots of ways you can help with the convention, whether your preference is to interact with people or to stay behind the scenes, and whether you want to dive in and take on a staff role for the months leading up to the convention or just help out for an hour during the event.

To volunteer, please complete the form below and we’ll be in touch!

Contribute to the Convention Programme

Is there a programme item you really want to see at the convention? The best way to make sure it happens is to volunteer to run it! If you’re not comfortable being on camera, you can also make a suggestion for what you want to see, and we’ll do our best to find someone to take it on.

You can suggest programme items using the form below:

Donate a Prize

There will be a variety of games and competitions at the convention for which we require prizes. If you would like to donate something, please get in touch to request our address (and please note the address has changed since last year!).

Have something special to donate? Unique handmade or rare items can also be donated to our charity auction, with 100% of the proceeds going to Alzheimer’s Research UK in memory of Sir Terry Pratchett.
