Does anyone know where I can find convention dates for UK? I'm heading back there for an August holiday and would love to go along somewhere if family/sporting commitments permit.

Claymore 2012 is in Edinburgh on Saturday August 4th

link Newark Irregulars' excellent wargames calendar.

August is a very quiet month though really Claymore and Britcon are the only big events, and Britcon in Manchester is primarily about the competition games Claymore's great if you can make it, but otherwise I'd pass.

War and Peace is a military re-enactment fair in Kent. Late August. i believe there is few traders there as well.

Wargames Illustrated contains a fairly comprehensive list of conventions in the UK/US for that month and the following month, so if you were to get hold of the July issue you might be sorted.

And manufacturers/publishers/resellers usually have a show diary on their website, like so:

Indeed, but there still aren't many shows in August….

Thanks Gents.

War & Peace looks my best bet as I'll be based in Surrey & with a heavily pregnant Mrs & a toddler in tow, I can't see me ranging too far.

I presume a web search for the show will do the trick.

War and Peace show is July 18-22nd this year.
Military Oddyssey reenactors also in Kent is 25-27th Aug.
Access to M26 and M20 is dead easy for both these shows so access from Surrey should be 30-45 mins dependant on where abouts you are.
