Welcome to Wild North

Wild North is a small 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.

For 2021, we're once again going online! See below for more details.

Upcoming events

Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 October 2021 - Tails of the Seven Seas (online convention)

September 2022 (TBC) - next in-person convention

Wild North 2021

Tails of the Seven Seas

Live, Free of charge, Online!

Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 October 2021

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 once again we're going virtual!

On the 2nd & 3rd October, 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!

Get involved

We want to make sure that this Virtual Convention is the best it can be, and no convention is complete without you, our attendees.

So to that end, we have several events we would like you to participate in!

Short Story Competition

Every sailor has a tale to tell! Send us yours and you could win a prize!

Closing date Saturday 18 September

Fursuit 'Dress-Like-A-Pirate' Competition

Let's be seeing you fine fluffs, all ship-shape and ready to sail. Prize for the best-dressed sea-dog (cat, goat, etc)

Closing date Saturday 25 September

Fursuit Dance Competition

As it sounds, a dance contest, with the winner decided during the event.

Closing date Saturday 25 September

3 May 2021

Ahoy there fluff tails!

Me and the crew have been plotting and scheming over many a bottle o' Fentimans

We have come to the decision that we do not wish to put any land lubbers in peril this year by accepting crew mates in person.

Fear not though mateys! Like last year we shall bring you fun and adventure once again through a Virtual Voyage on Twitch Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd of October!

Keep a weather eye out for further announcements from the crew on what our plans are, and how you can be involved.

Until then me hearties, batten down the hatches and shanty to ya hearts' content!

22 February 2021

We hope you are all doing well during this difficult time. The announcement from the government today (22 February), about the roadmap out of lockdown, has given us reason to think about how Wild North will go ahead this year.

It will go ahead for sure, be it physical or virtual.

We do feel, at this point, that it is too early to make an informed decision. As it stands, we wish to take a small step back and watch how things unfold over the next couple of months.

While the government has said that all restrictions should be lifted by 21 June, this is not set in stone, and this is part of the reason we wish to wait before we make a decision.

Around the end of April, we plan to review how things are going in regards to COVID-19, vaccinations, and the easing of restrictions. From there we will make a further announcement and keep you informed.

(Edit 3 May 2021: Date change)
