Dotted a stone's throw away from the site of the initial Jacobite victory on the battlefield of Prestonpans during the 1745 Rising, the Scottish Battlefield's Trust warmly invites you to its Inaugural wargames show.

Saturday 20 February 2016 11am-4pm

The Prestoungrange Gothenburg, 227 High Street, EH32 9BE
Prestonpans, East Lothian

Obviously trying to promote the preservation and protection of Scotland's battlefields, the theme for the event will be a small series of both participation and demonstration games acting as a timeline through Scotland's military history, from the Romans to the Jacobite Rebellions. Painting competitions will be run on the day, with a number of select prizes. Supported by a select number of traders, reenactors and historical stands, it should prove an informative day for the whole family. Food and drink is available from the restaurant downstairs. Only half an hour from Edinburgh, Scotland's capital, we hope this is an event that will grow and accomodate a gap in the Scottish gaming catalogue

£2.00 GBP GBP entry, free to under 15's.

Please stay tuned for further update's regarding clubs, traders, competitions and advertising.

It sounds like a good lineup of quality games and dealers. It should be a great show.
