Satellite 4 — 65th British National Science Fiction Convention
Celebrating humanity's journey to the limits of the solar system and beyond
with Guests of Honour:
and Special Guest:
(limited appearance, subject to health)
Hotel bookings opened on Wednesday 1st May and just over 100 rooms have now been booked, but there are still plenty left.
The main convention hotel is the Crowne Plaza, where the programme will take place. The primary overflow hotels are the Campanile and the Hilton Garden Plaza, both just a few hundred yards distant. Between these, Satellite 4 currently holds an allocation of over 300 bedrooms.
We have also negotiated a convention room rate at the Marriott, specially for the benefit of members who would prefer to stay off-site, within easy walking distance of the city centre.

Hotel Booking FAQ's
Below are the answers to some queries we've had from members.
Q1: Will my credit card be charged on booking?
A1: No. You will be charged on checkout.
Q2: They system won't let me book because my credit card expires before April 2014.
A1: We are reliably informed that if you 'accidentally mistype' the expiry date as being in 2015 the booking will be processed successfully.
Q3: I didn't receive an e-mail with the booking code - why?
A3: Various scenarios have occurred so far:
- your computer has flagged it as junk mail
- you didn't provide an e-mail address when joining
- you've changed your e-mail address since joining
- you mistyped your e-mail when joining on-line
- we mistyped your e-mail when transferring it from a paper form (in which case we do apologise - though some forms were quite hard to read).
Please check your SPAM folder if you suspect option (a). If you suspect other options, try logging into My Membership using whatever e-mail address you think you've provided. If it doesn't work, there's a mismatch with what is in the database. To fix this, please e-mail enquires with a note of your name, membership number, and your correct e-mail address. We'll update the database accordingly.
