How long is the con on for ?
Kokorocon is a 3 day convention running from the 29th - 31st of March.
Registrations open on the Friday. If people arrive a day early then we may allow a few members early registration
What are the age limits?
This convention is an 18+ only event. You must be 18 or over on the 29th March 2024 in order to attend. Minors will not be permitted.
Can I arrive at the hotel before it starts?
You certainly can! In fact, we encourage it, as it gives you time to get settled and unpacked before the convention starts – no one likes feeling rushed as soon as they arrive. Check-ins are from 3pm if you arrive the day before on Thursday, or if you arrive earlier on Friday you can chill out in the comfortable bar area until check in opens later in the day.
What do I need to bring to register at KokoroCon?
You need to bring your government approved photo ID to verify you’re over 18 and proof of your ticket – you can do this either by showing us the ticket and QR code on your phone, or by printing it off and bringing in a paper copy.
Do I need to bring ID?
Yes, ID will be needed for entry to KokoroCon; without it we cannot complete your registration and entry will not be permitted. See below for more information about valid forms of ID.
What do I need a conbadge for?
The conbadge is proof that you’re an attendee at this event – without it you will not be able to access any of the convention areas aside from registration. It also has important emergency information on the back of it, so keep it on you at all times!
What forms of ID are acceptable?
We accept passports, driving licences, military ID, national ID cards and cards bearing a PASS hologram. All ID must have a photo, a signature and date of birth shown. Please be aware that the name on your ID must match the name on the registration.
What if I do not have any form of ID?
Unfortunately without any photo ID we cannot allow entry, however, you can apply for a Citizen card HERE

You can request for your ticket to be transferred to someone else by contacting our Head of Registrations at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and ticket number. All transfers need to be done this way to ensure details are correct on our system and that ID can be verified at registration. Simply handing your ticket to someone else will result in them being denied entry, as their ID will not match the original registration details. All transfers incur a £5 admin fee. Any questions or concerns about refunds, cancellations or transfers should be emailed to our Head of Registrations at email@example.com

I would like to amend my ticket information
Please note that this will incur a £5 service fee. If you would like to change the name on your ticket (due to a legal name change) or change your badge name please email email@example.com with your ticket number and the full name the ticket was booked under.
If you have a registered carer or are the carer for a registered attendee, you do not need to pay for your membership.
The carer will still need a ticket, so please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) explaining that you have/are a carer.
We ask to see a DLA letter to see that they are officially a carer or another form of proof as listed on the carers first website HERE
