Prisoner" returns to "The Village" with each "Portmeiricon". This
unique event is staged by the series' official society, in the original filming location.
Over the weekend there is a full programme of activities and entertainment for members of
Six of One. Everyone can watch outdoor events, but the indoor programme is for society
members only. A registration fee also applies, to cover hire of equipment, to cover guest
expenses, printing and provision of an attractive convention pack. The weekend
includes re-enactments, screenings, discussions, costumes and guests. Be seeing you!
PortmeiriCon is built around a whole weekend 'in the Village', with Prisoner episodes,
quizzes, displays, screen events, competitions and debates. Special guest details appear
on the separate linked "Celebrity" page. Portmeirion's 'Hercules Hall', plus the
'Tudor Room' and 'Long Room', provided the elegant accommodation for indoor events. The
renowned hotel dining room, the Castell Deudraeth, plus bars and cafeteria once again
offered ample refreshment facilities, along with shopping at various sales outlets. The
exclusive Prisoner shop is open during the convention and a dance, disco and 'wrap party'
always ends the Sunday.
