BRITCON - Manchester - August 12-14th
University of Manchester
Altrincham StreetManchester England, M1 3NL
Friday-Sunday August 12-14, UMIST, Manchester
The largest event in the BHGS calendar is back again in our usual UMIST venue. Britcon competitions generally take place over 3 days, with the first games starting as players arrive on Friday evening. The Saturday is a "long" day, with gaming from around 8am-8pm, with a more normal day on Sunday.
Britcon will feature the following competitions : FoG:AM 15mm, FoG:R 15mm, DBMM 15mm, Epic Armageddon, Bolt Action, Guildball, L'Art de la Guerre 15mm, Flames of War, SAGA, and 6mm Blucher
This year prices are again frozen (for the 5th year in a row) and your entry fee for all of our 3-day events includes the Britcon Fiver giving you a "£5 off any £10 purchase with any trader" voucher as part of the entry fee
I assume that as usual the 'Trade Show' will be free admission.
This has become a regular group outing for my band of gamers as we get a nice little show, a wonderfully scenic drive and a warm welcome from our friends over on the wrong side of the Pennnines. The catering for breakfast is the best of any show I know of, both in terms of price and quality.
And, as it's only a few minutes gentle walk from Chinatown, we can do some shopping and get a very good lunch.
