Battleground 2014 will be taking place this coming Saturday, 29th November, at the Queens Campus Sports Hall in Stockton-on-Tees, TS17 6BH. We've added direction pdf's for every direction, so download those from the website here: http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/#!venue/chhf and here's a map as well, just in case:

We've got 35 traders and 21 games this year, with several new companies added to this years line up. Head over to the Traders or Games pages of our website for all the details on those: http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/#!traders/c24i2 In unfortunate news, Cozzmic Cakes has been taken to hospital this weekend and will be unable to attend. We wish Corrine all the best and we hope she's feeling better soon.

Our Tabletop Sale is being run by the Middlesbrough Gamers Club and will be open for bookings from 9:30am. Here you can hire a 6ft table for £1 per half hour to sell any unwanted goodies you've got laying about, then once your time is up you can head off into the show and spend you hard earned pennies!

Catering on the day is provided by the Aroma Cafe, situated on the other side of the car park, and it will be open from 8am for drinks and 9:30am for hot food. The location of the cafe is shown on our layout map:

Thanks to everyone who came along yesterday, visitors, traders and gamers!

The numbers were slightly increased from last year, which is a great result when moving a show. The Queens Campus was also a much better venue than the old one and the majority of the feedback we've had so far has been very positive. As with any change of venue there are a few creases we need to iron out, but we'll get those sorted and we'll be back next year on Saturday 28th November 2015!

We'll also be uploading the pictures, and putting together a proper show report, in the next few days, so we'll pop that up once it's done! Thanks again to everyone!

We've just uploaded all of the photo's from this years show, so head over and have a look on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.504863642989228.1073741831.388912817917645&type=3 (There's over 100 of them on there, so it was easier to use Facebook for it!)

Here's a quick selection as well:
