One Of Those COVID-19 Updates

Hey Everyone, 

Time for a little update from us around COVID-19, not that there's a huge amount of practical info from us right now. 

From a LAN party point of view, we're getting a couple of questions, but epic30 isn't until July and, let's face it, nobody really knows what's going to be happening by then. We have lots of work to prepare our events over a long period so we have to make plans as though it is going to happen. Tickets remain on sale and we'll still be working on our activity plans as normal with the hope that we're through the worst of it by then and restricitions are starting to lift, but we don't know what decisions our Government will take tomorrow, let alone in July.

epic28 SOLD OUT

Less than one year after we expanded our events in to the Kettering Conference Centre Arena, we've sold out of BYOC tickets for epic28!

We still have spectator tickets left and a number of Turn Up and Play (TUP) tickets for the Battalion 1944 tournament only. 

A sellout for us, really does mean a sellout, we will not be able to increase the number of spaces available this close to the event as all of our logistics are in place. 

That means the only way of getting a BYOC ticket at this point is through the waiting list.
