Friday 23rd - Saturday 24th - Sunday 25th - July, 2021
Last year, we had a whopping 900+ acres of previously undetected land, in a historically-rich area near Bellingham, Northumberland.
There was a great variety of finds, but the ones that got most attention were the numerous Roman coins that came up, that were declared a scattered hoard!
TICKETS SOLD OUT!
A great time was had by all, and the weather could not have been better!
Best of all, with the help of all the fantastic attendees, we raised a brilliant £3200 for local charity Children North East!
You can take a look here at some of the highlights and pictures from Detectorcon 2021.
And if you want to be part of the fun this year, then be sure to get your tickets for Detectorcon Two 2022 before they sell out!

Approximately 400 people turned up to enjoy Detectorcon 2021 - with most pitching up camp and making the most of the on-site facilities and entertainment included. Spread across 900+ acres of beautiful Northumberland countryide, in glorius sunshine, there was plenty of land and different terrains to detect, and equally plenty of opportunities to sit and bask in the Summer sun after many months of lockdown!
Back in the event arena, there was a marquee full of trade stands, alongside Regton's portable shop - providing just about everything you could have needed or just wanted.
As the finds came up, and filled the display box in the marquee - coin and artifact experts from DNW and Lingdum Colonium were on hand to provide professional identifications and valuations.
Everyone was kept well fed and watered too! Rutherfords bar kept everyone merry with delicious home-brewed beers, ciders and gin (I think they under-estimated quite how much we drink!). Bowers had the hot food covered, and Snack Attack offered the pioneering field packed-lunches.
And who doesn't love an ice-cream van in the sun!!
Relaxing and catching up with friends, old and new, was a highlight for many. Especially at night around the fantastic North of the Tyne Detecting Firepit.
The live entertainment kept eveyone in good spirits too.
And we can't wait to do it all again at Detectorcon Two 2022!
Get your tickets now - and we'll see you there!
