Battleground Wargames Show - Sat 26th November

It's getting close to that time of year again, as Battleground 2016 takes place on Saturday November 26th, at the Queen's Campus Sports Hall in Stockton-on-Tees, TS17 6BH, running from 10am until 3pm.

This show is organised and run by Pendraken Miniatures with help from Middlesbrough Gamers Club.

Entry to the show is only £3 for adults, with free entry for the rest of the family.

Currently we're looking to have 37 traders attending, but there may be one or two changes to last year's lineup. We'll have all of the traders confirmed by October and we'll update at that point. A current list of the expected traders can be found here: http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/#!traders/c24i2

This year we're expanding the games section of the show, as well as increasing the number of participation games on offer. We're waiting on the final details of some of our games, so we'll keep updating the lists here: http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/#!games/c19qp

We've always enjoyed having living history groups at our event, with the Durham Pals and 68th DLI returning for 2016. We've also added the Lonestar re-enactment group to this year's event, bringing a selection of 8th Cavalry equipment for people to look at and try on.

Last year's Tabletop Sale was a great success and was fully booked up all day long. For only £1 per half hour slot, you can sell as much as you like, with no commission at all! You can deal directly with the buyers, answer any questions they may have, and also keep an eye on your goods. Once your time is up (or better still, you’ve sold everything!), you can walk away, cash in hand, and enjoy the rest of the show! This year we'll try and add a couple more tables, but please make sure to book in early if you can. Bookings can be made through the contact section of the website: http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/#!contact/cn3p

As well as the main Battleground website here: http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/ you can also follow our Facebook page for the latest updates: https://www.facebook.com/BattlegroundShow?ref=hl

Don't forget to tell your friends about the event and we hope to see you there!

Thanks for the reply, most shows in the UK tend to be around the same length, usually 10am-5pm or 10am-4pm. The last 1-2 hours at a lot of shows these days is very quiet, so we decided to shorten the day a little and try to avoid that slow period. Also, with the event being at the end of the year and the dark nights coming in, the earlier finish allows our traders chance to get packed away and on the road while it's still light outside.

Ah, understood. Used to being at cons here in the Colonies from, at least the last one I worked, 10 AM to midnight.

That's a long shift! I've always wanted to come over and try one of the US Con's, having several games-oriented days is completely different to the UK style of mainly one-day shows centred around the buying side instead.

Yeah, we do pretty decent with gaming here. The cons I usually go to here in the Midwest are 'combo' conventions, with gaming, fandom and other things going on for an entire weekend. At Tokyo in Tulsa last month, I ran/facilitated some 40K demo games, a 40K tourney, Infinity demos and tournament, and a bunch more tabletop stuff.

TnT does pretty good with deals with local hotels around the convention hall. And their Early Bird pricing is definitely a good deal.
