The Annual Unconvention of the Illustrious Order of Fools and Beasts 2018

Event date: 
Friday, October 12, 2018 - 18:00 to Sunday, October 14, 2018 - 15:00

This year's Unconvention will be based at the Parish Rooms, Highnam community Centre, Highnam, Gloucestershire, GL2 8DG and will take place over the weekend of 12-14th October 2018. It will involve workshops, Saturday walking tour of Gloucester, plus the Feast at The Toby Carvery, Highnam. On Sunday we will have the AGM of course - your chance to have your say.

Accommodation is indoor camping; there may be provision for outdoor camping and Motorhomes, to be confirmed. Please indicate at time of booking. For anyone who wishes to be posh, there are some excellent B&Bs in Gloucester.

Attendance at the Unconvention  is available to any budding or experienced Fools, Beasts and Morris Characters from any team from the Ring, Open or Federation. If you have never been before, come along and meet other like-minded idiots people to swap tales, ideas and experiences. And, for those who have been - you know what mayhem to expect!

The cost this year will be £70 per person, which includes all meals except Sunday lunch. Pro rata rates available for those who wish to attend part of the proceedings.

Please note that this is the first price increase  for many years, and we feel it is still competitive with many of the other Morris weekends available.

The application forms is available below


On the Sunday, we have been invited to attend the Service at Gloucester Cathedral for those that will - there will be a "King's Queens and Martyrs" walking tour for those who won't!
