Wait a second now.... Isn't that a week later than normal?

Since my inexcusable error around 5 years ago of booking a weekend away on the second weekend in May, I've programmed everything around that second weekend. And now this year is booked for weekend number 3? And I'm ay a wedding in Whitby for the weekend....?

Well I'm sorry to say that looking back through the Calendar here, which only goes back a few years, shows the previous B&P events on the 3rd Weekend of May.

Also, not to add salt to the wound, but Phil is also saying this may well be the last one in it's current format as the Council is making it too expensive and impractical to continue at that venue. The other thorn is that there are not any real alternative venues of comparable size and available facilities.

Major updates for B & P 2016

Firstly, The Return of the Parking Permits, streets ahead of any 50's B movie in its scariness. But so long as the permits are carefully filled in and correctly displayed, there is indeed free parking in the Town Hall car park, now re-instated since the college that they were flogging it off to has gone bust before even opening, allegedly. The entrance and exit are once again on Waterloo Street. The permits can be picked up at the ticket desk or in advance from Spirit Games, we will post them out with tickets if required but due to ever-rising postal costs are happier to have them collected on the door.

Next, the bad news – due to the Town Hall hire charges being increased by 250% next year, this is likely to be the last B&P. We are looking for an alternative venue but have found nothing suitable yet.

But there is also good news – the bar provider is much more beer-friendly, and things are looking promising for having a mini beer festival based on beers from local breweries, as we did at the very first B&P all those years ago. Lead beer provider is the Golden Duck Brewery of Appleby Magna, just down the road.

Teetotallers are still very welcome! Tea, coffee and soft drinks will be equally available.

The heart of the event is of course the playing of board and card games, with role-playing and wargaming playing strong supporting roles. John Martin will be running his participation game both days, a 28mm North Africa wargame, and we expect X-Wing, Warmachine and Malifaux players to be looking for opponents. Role-playing has been on the up here recently; a Hackmaster scenario is planned to run over the whole weekend, with pre-generated characters so that players can drop in and out as they please, and as usual there will be the RPG Recruiting Area for anyone else with a scenario to run. We have various tournament prizes and promotional bits looking for good homes, so impromptu Splendor and Cash 'n' Guns tournaments are likely to spring up, among others. Not too much organisation – we have got by without it so far, now would be a strange time to start.

We have increased the price on the door this year, but kept the advanced price the same as usual, to encourage early ticket sales. With a new bar provider, getting the estimate of numbers right is particularly desirable, if we order too much beer and I have to drink all the surplus myself it could lead to tears.

Cheers! Phil

Less than a week to go for B&P 27...

Please note that Parking Permits are back. Ensure you mention you need one when booking tickets and if you already have tickets contact the shop if you require them.

Note you will need a different parking Permit for Sat and Sun so be sure to get the right one or both depending on which days you are attending.

See you all there....
