Cheap train fares to Britcon 2014 now released

Britcon 2014 - Friday, August 8 until Sunday August 10

It is now only 12 weeks until Britcon, the biggest weekend in the BHGS calendar! If you have been thinking about enteringone of the 10 wargaming competitionsat this year's Britcon, or even just visiting the Britcon Trade Show this is the ideal weekend to be booking your place as it's now that Network Rail will be releasing their cheapest fares* to Manchester over Britcon weekend.

Booking a train ticket 12 weeks out can be amazingly cheap - prices on TheTrainLine can be as low as £19 for London to Manchester return, so you may end up doing the whole weekend for peanuts with a bit of careful shopping around (plus the cost of beer..).

To get the best possible deal you can;
Britcon is held mere steps from Manchester Piccadilly Mainline station, and if you do travel by train you will not get stuck in traffic on Friday afternoon or Sunday evening, there are no parking fees, and no worrying about you car in the multi storey, and you can also have a couple of pints on Sunday lunchtime without worrying about the drink-drive limit... it's all good to be honest!

Wargaming Periods which will be on offer at Britcon 2014 include:

X-Wing (New Period - Sponsored by Grim Tree Games)
Field of Glory: Ancients & Medieval periods
Field of Glory: Renaissance
Field of Glory: Napoleonic
Flames of War (Late War)
Epic Armageddon
Bolt Action
Warhammer 40k (Back Again!)

Full details of themes and competition rules are on our website, together with details of our 2014 traders confirmed so far for the Britcon Trade Show, but whichever way you choose to get to Britcon, whatever you choose to play, or even if you just want to drop into the show and add to your lead mountain we hope we will see you across the gaming table in 2014, for what is already set to be an even bigger and better event than ever before!
