March 13th Statement on COVID-19 and Feral Vector

Posted on: No Comments

There has been a lot of concern about the effects of the COVID-19 flu outbreak on UK events, and we want to update you with our current plans and what it could mean for Feral Vector in May.

We have been keeping an eye on other events, and monitoring UK Government advice. At the current time there isn’t enough information or certainty to say whether or not we should postpone Feral Vector, so as things stand, we are still planning to hold Feral Vector on May 21st – 23rd.

However, given the recent developments, we will delay ticket sales until the second week of April. At this time, we’ll review the information available and confirm whether we go ahead with the current Feral Vector dates. We expect there to be much more information available then to let us, and you, make an informed decision.

Should the situation change and force a delay, or cancellation, we will inform everyone at the earliest possible opportunity. In such an event, we will make sure to transfer or refund the hostel tickets that have already been sold. We understand this could also cause complications with travel and accommodation bookings, for which we can only apologise, but we have a duty of care both to ourselves and everyone attending the event.

2015 Photos

Here are some of our favourite photos from Feral Vector 2015. It was fantastic to do a videogames event in a venue flooded with daylight, near beautiful outdoor spaces.

Thank you!

We have a heap of thanking to do, and a few links to pieces people have put up about Feral Vector. We thought it would be worthwhile to do a thing in a beautiful venue near good countryside and outdoor space. It, and you, exceeded all of our expectations. Soon, we’ll have a heap of photos and videos to post too.


Firstly, thanks so much to Jo Summers and Ross Fowkes for their tireless hard work in making Feral Vector happen. Without them, it would be impossible. The Birchcliffe Centre, particularly, Libby, for providing an excellent, airy, daylight flooded venue for people to talk, play and make things in. It felt like a massive breath of fresh air compared to most. Our hardware sponsor Boneloaf, Tea sponsor Sheridans, Thing sponsor Twisted Tree Games, and media partners A Maze and Ga-Ma-Yo. You all helped enormously in the run up to the event and let us do things we otherwise wouldn’t have been able to. William Pugh, Dominik Johann, and Kevin Patterson for making things beautiful, trying so many event things out for the first time there, and keeping us entertained. An awful lot of you jumped in to help with things from tea making to signage and cleaning up; thank you all. We really couldn’t hope for a lovelier audience.


You can catch up with a lot of what happened over the weekend on this storify. Here too are a few things other people have done. Emily Short wrote up some of her favourite moments on her blog, Jake Tucker wrote about it for Vice, and Abi Wright made a short video about it:
