Welcome to Wild North

Wild North is a convention for the furry fandom, based in Northumberland, northern England, UK. Our goal is to provide a smaller, affordable convention with a particular focus on people and great company. Therefore we offer a different experience from more typical fur cons.

This website will be updated ahead of 2022 registration, which will open in the New Year. For a preview of 2022, or to see what we did in 2021, see below.
