I hope you don't mind me posting here, thought your members would like to hear about the Hammerhead Wargames Show 2015

All games at Hammerhead are visitor participation, which means that you are very welcome 'to have a go' at a wide variety of different historical and fantasy based games run by intrepid gaming clubs, historical societies, wargame companies and enthusiastic groups of gamers. You will be able to play a full game or simply move a few miniatures, roll some dice, have a chat with the people running the game and then move onto the next. The show provides a great opportunity to try out new or familiar game systems and spend a day indulging yourself and friends in this absorbing and fascinating hobby. Whether you're interested in The Great War, WWII, Medieval, AWI, Fantasy or Science Fiction, we are sure that you will find a selection of games you would like to play.

There is a good selection of top traders selling a wide variety of wargaming wares, miniatures, terrain and scenery, books and gaming accessories.

Hammerhead show will be hosting a Tabletop Sale in place of the usual bring and buy stand. If you are new to this, you basically hire a table for one hour to sell your unwanted wargames items. You can deal directly with the buyers and answer any questions they may have. With no commission, you keep all the profits.

The Hammerhead 2015 miniature, ‘Eric' a German general, will be available for the first time on the day of the show for the token price of £1.00 GBP, or FREE if you purchase your Hammerhead Entry ticket online prior to the show. See website for details.

Parking is plentiful and FREE. Newark Showground is only a few minutes from the A1 at Newark Junction.

Looking forward to seeing you there, for a great day out! :D

No problem with posting this here. As well as being a useful source of traders selling GW and proxy troops, there are also suppliers of paints, terrain and other peripherals at these events. Hammerhead itself has a proud history of supporting fantasy, and I've hosted Pelennor Fields a couple of times there. I recommend a visit.

Always a good show, and even easier than previous venue to get to.
