Since the UK National Science Fiction Convention is traditionally held over the Easter Weekend, I'm providing the following list of dates of Easter for planning purposes. A longer list follows plus a link to both a still longer list and the Astronomical Application Dept. of the U.S. Naval Observatory where you can type in a year and get the date of Easter.

WARNING!

I've tried to double check these as much as possible, but it is always possible that all the places I've checked have copied from each other or have used the same incorrect algorithm. Also, subsequent to Vatican II and recent ecumenical meetings, the date of Easter may be fixed at some point in the future, either to the second Sunday in April (quite possible) or via a more astronomical (grin!) method to the vernal equinox. However there are no concrete plans in effect for either of these, so the dates below are the only sensible ones to use for planning at the moment! See Marcos Montes' website and links from there for more details...
