We are pleased to confirm that we have booked for you at Partizan MMXVIII on Sunday 20th May at the George Stephenson Exhibition Hall, Newark Showground,
10ft x 6ft games table
We have spoken to the venue and have agreed that there will be the opportunity for us to do some setup on the Saturday afternoon before the show. If any traders or games would like to start their setup at that time they would be very welcome. We do not yet have the exact time for this but will let you know as soon as we have finalised details.
We anticipate having the hall available for setup from 7am on the day. Doors open to the public from 10am officially, though we often let people in from a little before if the weather is inclement. Officially we will close at 4pm. As a courtesy to the paying public please do not start to clear away your tables or stands before 3.30pm.
We will have a steward outside the venue to direct you to your place when you arrive. There are a large number of suitable doors for unloading and you will be directed to the one closest to your stand or games table. As at previous shows we will be providing traders and gamers packs with each table which will contain coffee vouchers and free figures for everyone and raffle entries for the gamers.
As with last year’s shows, in conjunction with Wargames Illustrated and Wargames Soldiers and Strategy magazines and the Battlegames Online Wargaming Site, we will be presenting three awards.
There will be the Macfarlane Shield for the best Demonstration Game, the Pete Gill Shield for the best Participation Game and the Editor’s Shield for the overall best game at the show – chosen a trio of wargaming luminaries. We are extremely grateful for the agreement and help from both the magazines and the judges.
These awards are in addition to the raffle prize which is open to all games presenting at the show.
If anything happens to prevent you coming PLEASE let us know, so we can re-arrange. As you know we have a waiting list for traders, so if you can’t come we can slot someone else in. Even on the day let us know using the mobile number above. For gamers it is also important to let us know because we hate having bare tables left out.
We hope you have an enjoyable and profitable day,

Just over 2 weeks to go to Partizan and we have a quick update from the venue on access times.
We will open up from 2pm with vans allowed on the floor of the hall from 2pm until 4.30pm for unloading. Please as soon as you are unloaded move the vans out before starting to set up. We need all vans clear by 4.30 to allow us enough time to complete the setup of the games tables. We all then need to be out promptly at 6pm. No exceptions. Anything not finished by 6pm will have to wait until Sunday morning.
We will be open for setup from 7am as usual. Doors open at 10am. Obviously no vans will be allowed inside the venue on Sunday morning.
If you have any questions at all please drop me an email.
