Venue

Featherstone Castle, Northumberland

Featherstone Castle is deep in the Northumberland countryside. Originally dating from the 13th Century, the Grade 1 listed building is well-equipped for groups of roughly a few dozen, and offers a great 'canvas' for tailoring events. The castle has a range of event spaces, from a spacious open ballroom to a cosy fire-lit lounge. It also comes with a large, fully-stocked kitchen for group catering, meaning we are in the unique position to offer food and meals as part of attendance. Bedrooms range in size from doubles to larger dorms, giving options for groups of all sizes.

It is worth noting, we are staying in an historical rural building, which has seen numerous additions and changes over the centuries. This makes Wild North a somewhat different experience to a regular hotel-based con. So for example, you may wish to bring extra clothing or a blanket, as autumn nights in northern England can get chilly.

Also, we have exclusive use and largely free rein over the building for the weekend. So there will also be an element of everyone putting their paws in and making this event happen - though we think that's part of the fun!
