Eastercon 6, Cytricon, was held in Kettering (and so nicknamed) over Easter, April 9-10, 1955. There was no GoH. The committee was Bill Panter, Danny Cowen, Joe Ayres, Al Lee, and Stuart Mackenzie.
While this was the second Easter Eastercon, it was the first one to be called Eastercon. (The 1944 Eastercon which was held on Easter wasn't an Eastercon and doesn't count!)
There were three other early Cytricons: Cytricon II, Cytricon III, and Cytricon IV as well as a small (non-Eastercon) Cytricon V in 2008. The latter's programme book talks about the series.
