Welcome to Wild North

Wild North is a small convention based in Northumberland. Our goal is to provide a smaller, affordable convention that focuses more on the people and interaction, rather than big events, and offers a different experience from more typical furry cons.

We operate as an 'all-inclusive' con. Accommodation, events, food and gifts are included with your registration.
