PFS MANCon 2020, 20–22 March.
A PFS and SFS convention based in Fanboy 3, 25 Hilton Street, Manchester M1 1EL.

Time to get you Manc on, for it’s been said... “This is Manchester. We do things differently here”. Unlike some other conventions PFS MANCon is a city centre based convention, in a state of the art RPG dedicated gaming store, namely Fanboy 3, who have been host to the Manchester PFS Lodge for the past several years.

There will be Pathfinder Original, Pathfinder 2nd edition and Starfinder adventures over two days. The time table and slots will be:
Friday evening
6pm until 10:30pm Registration and (for Convention Attendees) FREE slot zero games
Welcome to Manchester

Saturday 21 March

5pm–10.30pm Slot 2

Sunday 22 March

4pm–9pm Slot 4


Tickets cost £20 for the full weekend, and that includes FREE tea and coffee. Payment can be made directly to Ian Hawthorne via electronic means or in person. GMs will receive a £4 discount for each slot they GM. Day tickets may be made available closer to the date depending on available space.


Fanboy 3 has its own in-house Coffee and Snack Bar ("Fanboy Tea"), with sandwiches, snacks, coffees and speciality drinks. Being City Centre there are a variety of food places all within easy walking distance. General tea and coffee will be supplied free by Fanboy 3 in the gaming room.


There is a veritable plethora of hotels close by and within easy reach. The prices vary a lot and deals come and go, so shop around. But there is generally something to suit most tastes and budgets.


Fanboy 3 is fully stocked for all your roleplaying needs: Paizo products, dice, miniatures etc. And as part of your weekend ticket you get 10% off RPG purchases in store. If there is something you definitely want you can always call ahead (Fanboy 3 tel 0161 247 7735) and have it reserved for you. You may not be aware that at a retail based convention your store purchases come with special boons which just may help you survive those deadly scenarios/GMs!
