12th June

Earlier this year we were notified by the Queen Campus venue that they would be unable to host external events any more, so we needed to find a new home for Battleground where we could continue expanding our event.

After looking at 13 different venues, we are pleased to announce that Battleground 2024 will be held at the Middlesbrough Sports Village, just back over the river in Middlesbrough.  This venue is arond 20% bigger than the previous one, with good accessibility, multiple car parks, nearby hotels and good public transport options. 

The new venue wasn't available on our usual date so for this year we've come forward one week and Battleground 2024 will be held on Saturday 23rd November!

We're really excited about this move and the continued growth of the show with more gamers, more traders and more to keep you busy.  There is a cost difference for the new venue but we've made some adjustments to the trader prices to allow us to keep our Free Eentry promotion in place.

We do not run Battleground for profit and the whole event is costed to just about pay for itself each year.  As a result we are always on the lookout for volunteers, so if you'd be interested in helping out, please get in touch.  We're looking for people to help with:

- Table setup on Friday and closedown on Saturday.

- Manning the entry desk and handing out wristbands/programmes.

- Marshalling the vans during closedown on Saturday.

- Photographing all of the games during the day.


We'll have 30+ traders at Battleground, covering all scales/genres plus scenery, books, painting services and more!


We always aim to bring the best selection of both display and participation games, from local games clubs to traders demo-ing their latest game.


Living history groups are a great addition to any event, and we'll have some interesting groups attending Battleground 2024.
