From August 8th through the 11th, we are thrilled to bringing all the fun and excitement of LeakyCon to the place where Harry Potter was born! The London skyline will be a welcomed backdrop for our first-ever conference outside of the United States. The Grand Connaught Rooms in London’s bustling Covent Garden district will be the setting for a weekend of Harry Potter panels, discussion, meet-ups, crafts, Wizard Rock, and the unique brand of celebration that is LeakyCon’s specialty!
London is a world-class city brimming with things to see and do. Whether it is the world-renown British Museum, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Tate Modern, the London Eye, or just a small out-of-the-way pub, you can find it (and much more) in London.
The complete programming schedule for LeakyCon London will be posted in the months leading up to the conference.
