Furcation 2019

Furcation is a furry convention that takes place [1] at the Combe Martin Beach Holiday park in Combe Martin, North Devon, UK.[1] Described as "Pontins/Butlins for Furries!",[2] Furcation offers accommodation in chalets and caravans that can cater from 1-6 people with various different luxury options.

Furcation has been pitched as an event for those seeking an alternative to the convention format and for those who are looking for a cheaper and more relaxing event to attend.

Pricing[edit]

Tickets for Furcation 2016 started from £47.00 rising to £159.00 depending on the chalet option chosen and number of people sharing. Furcation 2016 also offered an attendance only ticket which gave unlimited access to the event for £20 for the entire weekend.

History[edit]

Furcation was originally scheduled to take place over September 11-14, 2015,[3] at Warrens Holiday Village in Clevedon, North Somerset, England.[3] Due to difficulties with the planned venue, the convention was cancelled for 2015 with the staff expressing the hope to put together an event for 2016.[4]

Furcation 2016 took place over the weekend of October 14-17 2016 at the John Fowler Combe Martin Beach holiday park in Combe Martin. The event attracted 90 registered attendees [5] of which, 48 opted to Sponsor. The event raised £530 for their nominated charity, Secret World [6]. The event has received good reviews from both attendees and the venues own staff who have liked the relaxed nature of Furcation and it's balance between events and social time.

Venue[edit]

Noting a rise in the number of start-up conventions in the UK,[2] the Furcation organisers wished to step as far away as possible from traditional furry conventions. Hence, instead of being based in a hotel, Furcation looked towards the exclusive use of a holiday camp for the duration of the event.

For 2016, Furcation was based at the Combe Martin Beach Holiday Park in North Devon owned by John Fowler Holidays.
