Broadsides!

  

Broadside is our annual Wargame show and is now in its fifth year! We have been steadily gaining in popularity with each show and welcome more visitors each year. Whether you are interested in historical wargaming, Fantasy, Scif Fi, Boardgames or just painted miniatures and models, you are guaranteed a warm welcome and plenty of top range club games and wargame traders! For us, a wargame show is all about you, the visitor. We charge each visitor just £3.00 and any non wargaming partner and children under sixteen accompanying you get in for free. We provide seating areas so you can take a rest, chat with friends new and old...even play that new game you have just purchased...we even have a table for our younger visitors where they can build their own Armourfast tank for free thanks to our great friends at Armourfast. Our ever popular wargamers Flea Market is now in its own dedicated area and better than ever!

We are easy to find here in North Kent with good road links via the A2, M2, M20 and A249....and the main line railway station is just a few minuets away from our great venue. We even have two seperate entrances for your convinience, one via the entrance in Central Avenue and the other through the Main Leisure Centre entrance in the main car park. But, whichever way you arrive you will find so much to keep you busy you cannot help but enjoy your day. We are supported by so many great wargame clubs from accross the south of England and each will have a game you can join in with or simply just admire; and they are all very friendly too and will be very happy to chat about who they are and what they do.

A huge part of our show are the many wargame clubs and societies that provide great games to watch and participate in. This year will be no exception.....although there is a twist!

Clubs are invited to take part in this years show by providing a game that will fit onto A dinning table!

We are looking for games that will fit onto a 6 x 5 table but, those games must show great innovation and imagination to make the best use of that space.

BEST GAME IN SHOW – Sponsored by Pen & Sword Books. Prize of £100.00 of books. This year the winner will be decided by a vote from each member of the participating clubs. An MHWC Steward will be on hand to assist and register the individual votes. Please note that only those club members that are taking part in their clubs game may cast a vote. Members cannot vote for their own club...obviously...come on!
