Welcome to Wild North

Wild North is a small convention for the anthropomorphic 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 cons in our fandom.

For 2020, we're going online! See below for more details.

Upcoming events

Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 September 2020 - Virtual Tails (online convention)

Friday 24 - Monday 27 September 2021 - An Epic Tail of Britain

Virtual Tails

Live, Free of charge, Online!

Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 September 2020

From 2pm each day

While we are unable to meet you in person at Wild North, we are happy to reveal that we will be bringing Wild North to you all, because the Epic Tail of Britain is going virtual!

On the 26th & 27th September, we will have a livestream featuring some of the events that we would offer to the Wild North experience, except everyone can watch along and even take part!
