Warfare 2021

Warfare 2021 – Ascot Race Course 27th/28th November 2021

 

Warfare, our annual wargames show, is one of the largest in the country. This year, it is being held on the 27th and 28th November 2021

The Show in 2021 is moving to the Grandstand at Ascot Race Course, this move was due to Rivermead leisure centre being re-developed and the new centre will be smaller and we have out grown this location. With the new venue we will have a lot more space and will be able to expand Tournaments, traders, demo and participation games  and the Bring and Buy as well as add more to the show such as buy and play areas, more space for traders to run demos of games by their stands, and expand traders to include board and card games  plus other areas we currently do not cover
