Third British Convention
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The UK's Third Convention, also known then simply as London Convention, was held on Sunday 21 May 1939 in the Ancient Order of Druids' Memorial Hall on Lamb's Conduit Street, London, where its predecessor was held in April 1938. It was sponsored by the Science Fiction Association; its Liverpool branch expressed interest in hosting one in 1940.
Much is known thanks to Rob Hansen:
- Summary in chapter 1 of Then – said 48 attendees
- Details with retyped period reports (no pictorial material) on Hansen's website – says "around forty", with 26 identified by name (as of 2022, some have been added since 2011)
