UK Games Expo - Card and Board Game Events

Looks like for the first time in the last three years I'll get to enjoy the Expo as a visitor rather than spending all day doing demos or selling people things...

Tickets for UK Games Expo

Everyone attending the show needs a Show Entry Ticket. This gives full access to the Trade Halls, Demo games, Open Gaming Area, Family Zone, Playtest, Cinema, Seminars and Street Food Court (where food is a lot cheaper than in the Lounge.) It also grants 20% off Bar prices in the Lounge. In other words your Entry ticket plus the Trade stand fees is what pays for the show as well as the accommodation costs of the army of volunteers who make Expo happen.
In addition if you want to play in any Tournament or Roleplaying Game there is an additionalEvent Fee as specified on each Event Page. This is what pays for the EXTRA rooms we need to accommodate all the tournaments, all the acres of cloth and boards we use for them, prize support for those events that are unsponsored, trophies and Umpire/ Gms expenses and accommodation.
Don't forget to get all the tickets you need.
