Tabletop Sale

Some of you have probably seen this on our site and gone ‘what’?

As per last year, we have elected not to run a bring-and-buy sale, but instead provide table space for people to book for an hour to sell their unwanted stuff. It’s an idea we borrowed from the good folks at Hammerhead (among other places), and in general shows seem to have found that it reduces admin overhead (and also theft).

We have four tables in each one hour slot, starting on the half hour at 10:30, 11:30, 12:30, and 1:30. You’ll find the tables at the far left as you enter, up on the low stage. Bring your cash (there’s an ATM outside the Cresset by the BP garage), and snap up some bargains from the folks who have already booked a slot. If you want to book, we still have two tables left in the 1:30-2:30 slot at the time of posting.

“Operation Watchtower” Bolt Action tournament

Bolt-Action-logoNot content with running the club’s (sold out) third annual tournament (“The Phoney War”) in December, we’ve coaxed members of the club into running another Bolt Action tournament at Hereward. Tickets are on sale Right Now for the usual £10, including show admission, and the tournament pack is available for download here.

Watch this space for rules packs and tickets for the rest of the tournaments (as advertised in the national wargames press) this coming week.

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.
