We're delighted to be able to announce that the BHGS will be partnering with the new organisers of the long-running Derby World Show to provide our support to the competition elements of the Derby World Show this year.

The Derby Worlds Show has been a regular fixture on the UK and international competition circuit for longer than many of us have been rolling dice, going all the way back to the days when the show took place in the middle of the city and filled what seemed like every nook and cranny of the Assembly Rooms, subsequently moving out to the University and then even more recently relocating again to the racing circuit over in Castle Donington.  

This year as many of you will already know the Derby Worlds Show will again be moving to another new venue in the shape of Bruntingthorpe Events Centre - a far more modern event venue than Castle Donington, and also the location for the UK's biggest collection of historic Cold War Jets at their onsite aviation museum.

This year's event will again feature one of the best trade shows in the country, together with a host of demo and participation games and a massive roster of events and competitions ranging from Historical to Fantasy, and from Skirmish to Mass Battle rulesets sets.

We are planning on hosting over 20 different competitions running over both one and two days, making this a massive weekend of wargaming with something to suit almost every gaming taste.

Events planned include:
FoG - A/M
WRG 6th
WRG 7th
L'Art de LaGuerre
Mortem et Gloriam
FoG - R
By Fire & Sword
Dystopian Wars
Firestorm Armada
X -Wing
Bolt Action

​Currently we're collecting details from the umpires and theme-setters for each event and we will be publishing full details as soon as we have them on the new Derby World Show website - - so mark your diaries for the 7th and 8th of October 2017 !
