Food and drink

We are still in the process of working with the venue to ensure a range of catering options and to follow up on any issues which came up with catering at previous conventions.

As it proved very popular last time, a 'pop-up' food stall option will be available again throughout the day, and will offer a good variety. In addition, the restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet menus.

Finally, we are working closely with the hotel to ensure that dietary requirements are met and adhered to. If you have any specific dietary needs, please contact the Hotel team to let them know.

Leisure Suite and Pool

The hotel has a fully equipped fitness suite incorporating a range of cardio-vascular machines, free weights, a swimming pool and a hot tub. Access to the leisure suite is included for all resident members. Non-resident members will need to pay a fee.

Children must be accompanied in the pool at all times by a responsible adult.


A fully licensed bar will be available on site providing a number of soft and alcoholic drink options. Coffee, tea and hot water will be available at a discounted price, and there will be a discount of 20% available on all other regular bar prices. And as always, we will have a selection of real ales and ciders arranged specifically for the Convention, sold at a fixed price.


Complimentary Wi-Fi will be available throughout the hotel to all convention members.


It is of great importance that the venue and our hotels are as open and accessible to as many Members at any Discworld Convention as is possible. Our Accessibility Policy and a comprehensive overview of accessibility at the Hilton Metropole Birmingham will be available soon.
