Advance tickets: £5 per day, £9 for both days.
On the door: £7 per day, £12 for both days.
Venue: Town Hall, Burton on Trent. DE14 2EB.
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 on Sunday, 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.
