  1. epic24 - Menu

    If there ever aren't any out then ask at our shop as we have some disposable, but also if you ask the person who brings you the bar snacks they can sort too.
  2. epic24 - Menu

    Not at the moment I'm afraid. Being completely honest, the venue can't get a price from their suppliers that either us or them are comfortable charging.

The team at KCC is always happy to accommodate such requests, but it would be near impossible to print every possible option for every requirement, but don't assume that just because something isn't on the menu that there isn't anything for you. If you do have any particular dietary requirements, simply ask to speak to the chef at the catering area (usually Giles) and they will happily discuss your needs and try to work something out for you. It may take a little longer to prepare, but do just ask!
  4. Portland Room Closed?

    Both, once I'd closed Portland I realised I hadn't actually reduced the capacity to match the seats, plus numbers are picking up a little, just not to the extent where we think the 70 or so in Portland would sell in the time remaining.
  5. SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL Saturday Night Event

    As always, the KCC team have come up with some food and drink based items to go along with our themed evening. For your epic24 cocktails on Saturday night we have the glorious sounding: Muddy water Vodka Baileys Kahlua Lagerita Tequila Lime Juice Orange Liqueur Lager Pharmaceutical Stimulant Vodka Espresso Sugar syrup Kahlua The Portaloo Vodka Orange Juice Galliano I'm sure drinking the contents of a portaloo will bring back many wonderful festival memories for some of you...
  6. Portland Room Closed?

    Apologies, it is going to be emailed out to people this week who are already sat in there as obviously it affects them and some of the people affected have been spoken to directly (e.g. through their community Discords if we have that day-to-day contact with them). Though if you've already moved, you may not get picked up with the email now when we run the export...I was hoping to get the email sent out last night, but it ended up being a more hectic day than I'd originally planned. Obviously we closed it off at this stage (only last night) to stop more people sitting in there once the decision was made, only to disappoint them again in a couple of days when they get an email. We do have plenty of casual groups who also choose to sit in Fair Isle and similarly people who attend primarily for esports still taking part in casual gaming activities. It's certainly not the hard divide that people may think! Just as an addition over here too, when we were bouncing ideas around on Facebook, here's what I posted so people can see the reasons behind the decision while we were waiting to assess the payday ticket sales: A little early heads up, we'll also mail this out to those affected as we appreciate not everyone is in the Facebook group. We always like to be honest with people with positives and negatives, and unfortunately ticket sales are not doing as well as we'd hoped for this event, a position we've not been in for a while. We know some of the reasons for that, from clashes with other big events (some of which only announced in recent weeks) to being slightly earlier in the exam season and a few big groups not attending this time. But as it stands, the event is set to make quite a loss so we have to look at the costs and where possible look to make a few savings to make sure in the long term, what we do is sustainable. So with that said, we're looking at closing off one of the rooms, in this case Portland, and moving that back to being the sleeping area for this event, that then means we can cancel the Boathouse room off the booking and make a reasonable saving on the event costs. You'll also see that in some rooms we've closed off some rows where we think there will be space so that we can cut back on the table hire costs. We'll be closing off any vacant seats in Portland today and asking teams/communities sat in there where they'd prefer to move to. It's not something we choose to do lightly, but I'd rather explain our reasoning to you direct and we have to make the call on the spaces available with one month to go to be allowed to cancel them. So unless there are a few huge groups waiting to book, then we'll let people know properly over the coming days.
  7. BIG GAMES and FUN TOURNAMENTS at epic24

    I've a feeling there's an issue with the dedicated server these days which is one of the reasons we've not left one up before, @Dunceantix?
  8. Could also consider AirBnB, if you look at the new map on the sleeping page (https://www.epiclan.co.uk/epic24/sleeping) it shows all nearby accommodation too.
  9. It's not just the epic.LAN dates doing it I'm afraid. If you take a look on the Kettering Borough Council website, because I have too much free time on my hands these days, you can see the planning applications for the hotel at KCC and as part of that, there's a demand study completed for hotels in Kettering as a whole. Basically the town doesn't have enough hotel rooms available for the demand during the week for business travel. So when we stay at the Holiday Inn Express for example, we may only take up say up to 5 rooms during build, but the whole hotel is fully booked for the night we're there. It's one of the reasons why we're still hopefully that the planning application will still go through after appeal, because the business case for it is so clear!
  10. Breaking the rules

    Now you've gone and done it. I await the photos of your BSOD at LAN.
  11. We wont have a PUBG esports tournament, the licensing for PUBG is still very heavily controlled for official tournaments.
  12. Seats

    Hi, We dont have a chair rental service I'm afraid, though the small wooden ones you may have seen one event aren't used now (they were only used as a one off), they're all padded conference style chairs with a metal frame. We are discussing rental options with a couple of the gaming chair providers, but nothing is confirmed yet. It's not something we're able to do in house at the moment as our storage and vans are already at capacity.
  13. At the moment our confirmed esports tournaments are CSGO Dota2 Starcraft2 Rocket League There may be 1 other added in to the lineup, TBC in the next few weeks. Prize pools vary according to numbers and any sponsorship interest, you can see what they were for our last event at - https://epic23.tournaments.epiclan.co.uk/ There will be a range of fun tournaments as well during the weekend, these don't necessarily have any prizes (hence the fun part), but if they do, would usually be hardware prizes.
  14. Sleeping Room and Common Sense

    Also at the last check, there's still space in the downstairs room (Boathouse), so please utilise that one if Pendeen (upstairs) is full.
  15. epic23 - Menu & Catering Feedback

    Also for anyone with any special dietary requirements, if you aren't sure then speak to a member of the catering team and they'll happily talk you through ingredients and alternatives as needed.
