2022 is a big birthday for us so we're having a party!

30 years...!  To celebrate our 30 years in the hobby we're going to be having a big 30th Birthday Bash on Saturday 16th July, up here at our new premises here in Middlesbrough.  We'll have games, offers, cake and more, running from 10am until around 5pm (or until the games have finished!)

The Birthday Bash will coincide with the opening of our new Games room as well, so we'll have 7 game tables with a variety of display and participation games.  We'll also be running tours of the workshop during the day so you'll be able to see how we take a sculpt through to a metal casting, as well as our laser and 3D machine setups.

We'll have refreshments available on the day and will be looking at some catering options too, depending on numbers.

For those coming from further away there are hotel options within a mile or two (Premier Inn is currently £41 for the Friday night) and if there's enough folks staying over we'll organise a meal out like we did for our 20th Birthday.

We'll have some more little treats coming which we'll announce over the coming weeks.

For our customers further afield who can't make it, we're going to look at setting up cameras above each game table and streaming the event live online.  We'll also have offers running on the website so you'll be able to take advantage of any bargains too.

And finally, if you'd like to run a 10mm Birthday game in your local area or club, please let us know and we'll add it to the list!

As always, any questions just let us know and we'll hopefully see some of you here!

It sounds like an excellent excuse for a road trip.
Alas I'm currently confined to a short radius my medical issues.

I'll certainly endeavour to dial in if there's a broadcast.

Best wishes to all and congratulations on keeping the business running and growing for 30 years.

Leon

Thanks guys, looking forward to it!

It might not be our real birthday date...!  We can't actually remember when Pendraken became 'official' but July is nice and sunny and seemed a good option...!

An official birthday .... like the Queen :)
Growing old is mandatory, growing up is entirely optional!

Well, she turns 60 on that day - she's not a real baby sister either!
