‘ESCAPE’ - The Virtual PortmeiriCon 2021 - Weekend of 24th - 25th April.

During the last 12 months life has been extremely difficult living with Covid-19 globally, with many people never experiencing such awful challenges and losses in their lifetime before. Consequently the virus has affected so many people and their lives, with substantial parts of everyday life being shut down or placed on hold.
Six of One had to make a difficult decision last year not to proceed with PortmeiriCon 2020 because of the ongoing Covid virus situation, the frequently changing government rules and restrictions, and the uncertainty that laid ahead. It was decided that it would not be possible to stage PortmeiriCon 2021 either, which is very disappointing for everyone. However all is not lost and the convention organisers have decided it would be a really nice idea to stage a virtual PortmeiriCon event, over what would have been the actual convention weekend in Portmeirion. Hopefully the virtual event will bring some welcome cheer and happiness to the people who are unable to attend the real convention this year. It will also provide a good opportunity to show non-members what actually goes on during the event and provide a nice flavour of experiencing an exciting convention weekend.
Six of One will be working closely with Portmeirion on this project and collaborating with many people and members to produce the virtual event. If you would like to submit an item for the virtual PortmeiriCon event, e.g. home videos / slide shows / photos etc., relating to any past or recent Prisoner conventions, Portmeirion itself, external Prisoner film locations like Borehamwood and London and any Prisoner related items, please send an email to: escapetvp@protonmail.comwith your item details or any ideas that you may have. Alternatively you can send a private message from this page and a team member will contact you back. We would really like to do an item around the origins of how the society began and the subsequent conventions that grew out of this. If anyone has some video or photographs of the very early conventions held at Portmerion in the eighties, we would love to hear from you.
We hope ‘Escape’ will be an exciting and stimulating online event in April and provide some warmth and pleasure during these very difficult and trying times. So please get involved and search your Prisoner vaults for anything suitable. Updates and information about how to view the event will be provided here over the coming weeks and months and we very much look forward to seeing you (virtually) at ‘Escape’ The Virtual PortmeiriCon 2021.

"The 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!The 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.
