(See 'way below for the other Eastercons.)
Eastercon is the annual British National Science Fiction Convention. It has been held over the Easter weekend every year since 1955. Before 1955 it was held over the Whitsun weekend except for Loncon in 1949. (The 1944 Eastercon which was held on Easter was not an Eastercon and doesn't count!)
There are no official rules and regulations for the Eastercon. To call your convention an "Eastercon" there has to be a general consensus that a bid has been put forward and approved by the membership at a previous Eastercon.
A * after a year indicates the convention was held Whitsun rather than Easter.
There were also some British national conventions before the first recognized Eastercon:
|"Other First Convention"||Leeds||1937|
|"Second British Convention"||London||1938|
|"Third British Convention"||London||1939|
