We’re delighted to announce that tickets are now on sale for the official SAGA Melée at Hereward Wargames show, with thanks to our sponsors Gripping Beast, who have even promised to provide us a judge 😀
It’ll be a 6pt tournament, with 3 games over the course of the day (between 9:30 and 4:30) in the show’s tournament area upstairs. Your £10 ticket includes admission to the show, and we’ll give you a decent break to go buy suff from our lovely traders, admire the games, and eat.
Tickets are available here, and the tournament pack will be available for download once we’re done putting the final touches to it this weekend.
Watch this space, as signups for our other tournaments will be appearing over the course of the next couple of weeks.

You 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.
