We are pleased to announce that 2015 attendees Ainsty Castings are returning as the 6th trader for the 2016 show. Ainsty make a wide range of scenic items and also carry show sponsor Gripping Beast’s “Saga” range of miniatures and rules. View their full range at www.ainsty-castings.co.uk
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.
The fifth confirmed trader for Hereward 2016 is another new name to the show in Crooked Dice Game Design Studio, the geniuses behind the 7TV game. We anticipate that Crooked Dice will be demonstrating 7TV on the day. Find out more at www.crooked-dice.co.uk
The fourth confirmed trader for Hereward 2016 is Peterborough based PE2 Collectables. They are Warlord Games specialists and can offer almost anything from the extensive Warlord range at discounts of at least 10%. They also carry goodies from Perry Miniatures, The Army Painter, Rubicon, Plastic Soldier Company, Tor Gaming and Early War Miniatures as well as a wide range of 2nd hand items! Check out their website at www.pe2collectables.co.uk

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.
For those of you who missed last year’s show, or maybe just want to reminisce a bit, Neil Shuck has written us a very generous review in the new Miniature Wargames (issue 394).
As far as this year goes, you may notice we’ve just got the new website up at http://www.hereward-wargames.co.uk/ (just in case you’re reading this on Facebook) – signup form for participation games and a reminder of how to request a trade stand will be going up later this weekend, just as soon as our webmaster gets it all set up.
Our first confirmed trader for Hereward 2016 is @twistedpinnaclegames. Find out more about them on their website www.twistedpinnaclegames.co.uk

After a little break we have started planning for next year’s Hereward show, which will be on SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 4TH. The FB page for the Event can be found here:
Please feel free to like and share!
The show will remain at the Cresset and subject to sufficient interest will expand slightly in terms of floor space. This means we should be able to accommodate several more lovely games and traders, and possibly some different or larger tournaments!
We will shortly start issuing publicity material and taking bookings from participation games and interested traders.
If there’s anything you would like to tell us about this year’s show that you think could help us improve in the future please feel free to get in touch!
