To clarify the booking options: 

To attend the entire event you need to purchase Fantasycon 2018 Membership. This is a sliding scale of costs depending on whether you are a member of the BFS, adult/student/child prices and when you book. Prices will go up about a month or so before the event and buying a membership on the day will be more expensive again.  

If you wish to stay at the Queen Hotel for the duration of the event (or even days before or after) please book this with the hotel itself, we do have a number of rooms allocated to Fantasycon, so just let them know you are attending the event.
