Tournaments

Entry pages for all our tournaments are now up, including the Magic: The Gathering and X-Wing events. It’s definitely not too late to enter, and we can (at a pinch) accept entries on the day for most of the tournaments, but it’s much easier for us to plan room layouts and the like if we have a decent idea of numbers in advance.

Thanks to Trev at The Rift for stepping in to run our X-Wing tournament, and providing some excellent prize support as well.

N.B. The issue with ticket downloads should now be resolved: if you’re still experiencing difficulty, please drop us a line at the info@ address on the right, and we’ll sort it out.

Ticket downloads issue

We are aware of an issue with downloabugding ticket PDFs, as well as somewhat slow performance, on our site, and are looking into it.

As long as you have received a confirmation email, your purchase has been successfully made, and as soon as we resolve the issue in question, you will be able to download your ticket. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.

Advance Tickets and Tabletop Sale

advance admissionYou can now buy advance tickets for the show (£3 each) from the Buy Tickets link in the menu bar.

Additionally, as last year, we will not be running a bring and buy. However, borrowing an excellent idea from the folks at Hammerhead and elsewhere, we will be running a tabletop sale. You may book a one-hour slot on a table in the main hall to sell your wares, for £5 in addition to your admission fee. We recommend booking in advance as this may govern how many tables we make available.

Please note that slots include 5 minutes each setup and clear-away time, and are at 10:30-11:30, 11.30-12:30, 12:30-1:30 snd 1:30-2:30. As of now we have four tables available for each time slot – this is subject to change depending on demand.

If you’re interested in booking a trade stand or putting on a game at the show this year, the booking information is on the site. Check the menu entries at the top of every page for a link.

As last year, we’re very keen on participation games that get the public involved over anything else, be it for long or short periods of time.
