It's getting close to that time of year again, as Battleground 2016 takes place on Saturday November 26th, at the Queen's Campus Sports Hall in Stockton-on-Tees, TS17 6BH, running from 10am until 3pm.  

This show is organised and run by Pendraken Miniatures with help from Middlesbrough Gamers Club.

Entry to the show is only £3 for adults, with free entry for the rest of the family.

Currently we're looking to have 37 traders attending, but there may be one or two changes to last year's lineup.  We'll have all of the traders confirmed by October and we'll update at that point.  A current list of the expected traders can be found here: http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/#!traders/c24i2

This year we're expanding the games section of the show, as well as increasing the number of participation games on offer.  We're waiting on the final details of some of our games, so we'll keep updating the lists here: http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/#!games/c19qp

We've always enjoyed having living history groups at our event, with the Durham Pals and 68th DLI returning for 2016.  We've also added the Lonestar re-enactment group to this year's event, bringing a selection of 8th Cavalry equipment for people to look at and try on.

Last year's Tabletop Sale was a great success and was fully booked up all day long.  For only £1 per half hour slot, you can sell as much as you like, with no commission at all!  You can deal directly with the buyers, answer any questions they may have, and also keep an eye on your goods. Once your time is up (or better still, you’ve sold everything!), you can walk away, cash in hand, and enjoy the rest of the show!  This year we'll try and add a couple more tables, but please make sure to book in early if you can.  Bookings can be made through the contact section of the website: http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/#!contact/cn3p

As well as the main Battleground website here: http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/ you can also follow our Facebook page for the latest updates: https://www.facebook.com/BattlegroundShow?ref=hl

Don't forget to tell your friends about the event and we hope to see you there!

Definitely going. My favourite show of the year, if I'm honest. Not too big, nor too small. Good venue with good facilities. Good selection of games and traders. Also it doesn't hurt your feet to walk around the place as the floor is wooden and it being all in one place there's no trekking around to find things. The organisers are easy to find and willing to help you out, should you need them, too.

According to the map, Techno Towers is 294 miles from Middlesbrough.......Mart lives another 20 or so miles further away.  Sad

I turn left 99% of the time when I leave the house.

The right turn is a really horrid wiggly-windy' road which I avoid, as much as possible.
Only go that way, to meet the library van, once a month.  Cheesy
