If you are coming to the trade show why not reserve a ticket in advance and we will let you in for free - yes, that's right, no entry cost at all! We know there is a recession out there, so we want you to be able to spend all of your hard earned cash with our loyal traders... and you can't say fairer than that..
By registering in advance we will be able to send you up to date information on who will be there, what new products they will have on show, and whether they have any Britcon special offer at the show as well - so not only do you not have to pay to get in, the stuff you buy may even be cheaper too.
We will also be keeping all of our players in the two main gaming rooms - so you will be able to see all of the competitors on one easy place, no searching for your mate Dave up from London but missing him, only to find he was playing in a pokey impossible to find broom cupboard upstairs ...
We even have a few spaces left in some of our competition periods, if that's your thing. Check the website for detailshttp://www.bhgs.org.uk/britcon
See you there
