Right then - have found another venue for next
year - so am thinking of keeping the tabletop
sale for january but running a proper show in
the summer time.
watch this space.......
i have been waiting since October last year for the liesure centre to give me a price for JULY 2013 - but still nothing - hence the venue will remain the same even though we were packed at times. i am looking for an alternative which will be cost effective to traders and with no entry fee for customers - and that has a kitchen for the missis to work in LOL.
DONT TELL HER I WROTE THAT!
Again it will be first come first served so please let me know as
soon as possible what game you wish to run or how may tables you
will need. Tables will be £6 each for the day. demo tables are free but space is tight so i cant guarnatee the size of the table you might wish to play.
if anyone knows of any other local venues then please let me know - if i can increase capacity then i can increase visitors.
LASTS YEARS EVENT
HAPPENED ON - 22nd January 2012 - 10a.m - 1p.m
ENTRY WAS FREE - AND IF YOU DIDNT ATTEND THEN
YOU MISSED OUT
This was the first time as far as I am aware that an event like this had been held at Penkridge ever, and even though you may thinking it me blowing my own trumpet the event was a real success.
The hall was fully booked out but still managed to squeeze in 2 more genuine traders (Paul Reid of warboots manchester being one - thanks for your help and guidance with the event Paul - may not have pulled this off so well without your input.)
Parking was tight at times so will put further info on site as to parking spaces availabel in the area - their is lots but if you dont live here you wont know where it is.
Many thanks go out to the sellers and traders below who helped to pull off a really good day - hope you all enjoyed yourselves and that it was all worthwhile.

A big thankyou also to Paul Reid of Manchester WARBOOT for his ongoing support and advice.
I must also add the heart breaking news that Paul has since been taken from us. For the short time i knew this chap i can honestly say that he did a great deal for the gaming community in Manchester, will be greatly missed and most of all was a really nice chap.
R.I.P Paul Reid.
