(For other Loncons, see Loncon (Disambiguation).)

Eastercon 2, Loncon, was held in London over Easter 1949. The GoH was Bill Temple. The committee was Walter Gillings and others. Memberships were 2/6 to join the Loncon Society and an attending supplement of 5/- including buffet. Attending members paid 7/6 (seven shillings and six pence), equivalent to about £11 in 2024. Fantasy Times v4 #4 says that UK fandom was 'Taking a leaf from United States fandom's book' in soliciting memberships of the convention society.

There was no Eastercon in 1950, and Festivention isn't strictly an Eastercon, so the sequence continues in 1952 with the London SF Con
