Sage Paracon UK 2016
On the 8th & 9th October 2016 Sage Paranormal will be hosting their very own Paranormal Convention at Wroxall Abbey Estate in Warwickshire. I know this because it’s well advertised, if you’ve missed it you’re social media blind and because I have the pleasure of being one of the guest speakers. Don’t miss out on what’s going to be a great weekend and pop over to their website later and purchase your tickets. There are some great deals available.
So, as we begin to run up to the event I thought I would make a few of my posts all about some of the things going on over the weekend at Sage Paracon UK 2016. Hopefully as you follow the posts, which I will try to make as frequent as possible, you can join me on a virtual journey into the paranormal world. Our final destination will be the Wroxall Abbey Estate on the 8th October and Sage Paracon UK 2016.
If you missed my previous posts on Sage Paracon UK, here’s a few for you to catch up on:-
Random Visit to Wroxall Abbey
So, this morning saw a slight change to my usual Tuesday morning, with annual leave from the day job I took the opportunity to head over to see MJ Dickson in Warwickshire. This was to achieve two things; a) deliver a few things to MJ for the VIP bags and, b) see Wroxall Abbey for myself.
After bumping into MJ at Knowle with the slight assistance of clever technology, we jumped in my car and headed through the beautiful countryside towards Wroxall Abbey. Just for the record the winding country roads with overhanging large trees, rolling countrside and a couple of canal side pubs are just stunning. The area that Wroxall Abbey fits into is simply one of the most perfect examples of the British country. I’m telling you this in order to help set the scene before we move onto the Abbey itself. They say that often the right location can make the event and this location is a fantastic place locate conveniently too.
It’s actually pretty close to Warwick itself, which means it’s not far from Coventry and Solihull (South Birmingham) too. Now I know it’s in the middle of the country, but don’t let that deter you it’s actually closer than you might think. I live in Hertfordshire and still managed to get there in less than a couple of hours, pretty sure it wa like an hour and half in the car.
An Impressive Entrance
During my time investigating public locations one of the most amazing things was also the access to the historical buildings. Often for me as you drive up to the location, you can just tell how good a location is. Wroxall Abbey did not disappoint as I passed the Gate House and headed up the drive either.
As you can see it’s pretty impressive and really beautiful. Straight away I could tell that this location was impressive and was kept very well too. The picture above was certainly an excellent introduction to the site.
The Main Convention Area
After we parked the car we took a brief walk to the front of Main Convention Area and took a look at the space we would be using on the 8th and 9th October 2016. I have to admit I was a little taken back by it at first glance and equally impressed with MJ’s efforts. She immediately took to explaining the ‘zoned’ layout and I listened intensly as I began to visualise her plan.
As the picture suggests this is the area that will house the main stalls during Saturday and Sunday, with space at the back for the three mini museums too. The wooded floor will also be the dance floor for the Zombie Prom on Saturday night. It’s a large space, but to be fair one perfect for this convention. Also, from the picture above what you can’t see is the stage area behind the photographer or the bar to photographer’s left. All important, trust me.
Oxjam Live Music Festival Stage
Through most of Saturday and Sunday Sage Paranormal have organised for there to be live music within the main convention area from the stage below.
This is an excellent space to allow the bright new talent to showcase their music as a part of the Oxjam Live Music Festival. Please take the time to look at the Sage Paracon website in order to familiarise yourself with some of the talent coming to this very stage and help support Oxfam. A few are listed below too, I’m nice like that.
The Spooky Graveyard
Surely no paranormal convention would be truly complete without some kind of spooky haunted graveyard! Well Sage Paracon UK 2016 is no acception to this rule, the team plan to make the on site graveyard look appropriate for the event and especially for that all important Zombie Prom. Check it out in its normal state below:-
Lecture Room & Guest Speaker Rooms
Last and not least there is the building where the lectures will be held on Saturday and Sunday, which if memory serves me well can seat around one hundred people. Good to know and cheers MJ! Incidentally the lecture room is housed in the same building where the team, guest speakers and VIP’s will be staying. That’s right they’ve placed us all in our own building.
Well if all that doesn’t convince you that Sage Paracon UK 2016 has chosen a fantastic location for the convention, then I’m not sure what will really. When I visited the location today it literally had me in awe, it’s beautiful, peaceful and so very perfect for this convention that I have to take my hat off to MJ Dickson and the Sage Paranormal Team.
I simply can’t wait for the weekend in October now, it’s going to be epic!
