News No Grand Cosplay Ball In 2011
This message was sent to followers of "The Grand International Cosplay Ball' on Facebook:
We've been getting a lot of emails recently asking when the next ball will be......we can announce finally that we will NOT be running the Grand International Cosplay Ball in the UK in 2011.
This does NOT mean that this is the end for the Grand Cosplay Ball - in fact the opposite!
We want to expand the event and make it even better! In order to do this, we are currently searching for a larger, better venue; moving our website to a new server and taking on more staff. All of this doesn't leave us with a lot of time, and we didn't want to rush out a substandard event for 2011.
We felt that there were a lot of things we could improve on from our last event, and many ideas which we have been planning since 2008, but we haven't had the time or opportunity to make them a reality yet.
We are grateful to everyone who has supported our event in the last 4 years, and we're sorry if anyone is disappointed that we won't be running in the UK this year.
Some of the new positions we are creating in our organisation will be open for the public to apply - more details will posted up in the next few weeks!
18 months is a long time to wait, so we are also looking at running some smaller parties during the year too.
We look forward to seeing you again, even bigger and better in 2012!
