The Britcon Trade Show will be returning to the now-familiar surroundings of the Barnes Wallis Building at Manchester Uni over the weekend of 11th-12th August 2018, with more traders than ever this year making it one of the biggest events in the North West.

Yet again we will be running our rather popular "free entry" yes, that's right, no entry cost at all. We know that most gamers want to spend all of their hard earned cash with our loyal traders… so that's why we don't charge entry.

If you wish to register in advance so we can send you special advance information on offers and show deals from our Britcon trader offers and updates on demo games as well you can do so here. link
