Hey Everyone,

I'm off to the UK for a few weeks for my Sister-in-law's wedding and I was wondering if there were any shows in the north or Scotland around this time?

My wife's English and we live in Scotland and England when we were first married, but I was on a 10 hiatus from gaming then so I never took part in the hobby while there.

The first part of my trip takes me to Aberdeen for 4 days, then to Anglesey for a week, then the Yorkshire moors for a few days. Any chances to hit a show in there? Large or small, just pop the location and date down and I'll start checking the itinerary to see if we're in the area.

Or, if there is a comprehensive listing of UK shows, please point me in that direction and I'll start investigating. Though my UK geography only extends to cities really, towns and villages I'll have to google.

Thanks for any help!

You just miss our local show, Phalanx, on the 17th.

Try here ….

…. for other events. Doesn't look like you have chosen the best time to come to the UK though.

If you can get that far south, the Bovington one is usually thought a good one. If into 6mm the 'Joy of Six' in Sheffield is a small but excellent show.

Alas Bovington and its wonderful Tankfest event don't quite meet the "north or Scotland" criteria; if they had I would have suggested the Naval Wargames Weekend in Gosport, July 8/9th…

Marry someone from a different county, then you get to go to the same place every vacation and you go when it fits in the schedule, rather than 'the best time to go' :)

Thank for the advice gents! The sites linked to have been most welcome!

If anyone from Aberdeen or York is reading this and there is a club night happening that you wouldn't mind an interested foreigner dropping in, post it up or PM me.
