Battleground 2020 has been cancelled due to Coronavirus, but we'll be back in 2021, at the Queens Campus Sports Hall, Stockton-on-Tees, TS17 6BH.

The Battleground show, established in 2009, started life as Smoggycon, and was organised by Stuart Johnston and the Middlesbrough Gamers Club.  From 2013, Pendraken Miniatures took over the organising of the show, with the aim to build on the excellent foundations already in place.


For 2014, the show moved to a new home, at the Queens Campus Sports Hall, in Stockton-on-Tees.  This building is part of the Stockton Campus of Durham University, and provides a modern spacious hall, able to house a bigger number of games and traders, as well as offering local attractions and nearby shopping facilities for our visitors.  The new venue received a very positive response from the visitors.


Our main aim is to constantly improve the show, making it into one of the major shows in the north of England.  We hope you'll come along and join us for a great day out!
