    Default Colours 2022 - Newbury - Saturday 10th September

    Noticed this on Newbury & Reading Wargames Society site:

    "We took the tough decision to hold back in 2021 for the safety of our members and you the public.

    We are therefore pleased to tell you that Colours 2022 is on!

    It will be at our usual venue (Newbury Racecourse) and a one day event. Keep the date Saturday 10th September 2022 free and join us, some great traders, demo games and of course the bring and buy. Price of entry to be confirmed but we'd hope to keep it as low as possible...."

    Entry is Free !


    Event location:
    Grandstand, Newbury Racecourse, Berkshire RG14 7NZ Opening times is usually 10.00-16.00
    https://nrwc.org.uk/colours-2022

    Three floors of loveliness - It's well worth going to.

    And we have a table again !

    Here's the last outing in 2019: https://www.wingsofwar.org/forums/sh...019-At-Newbury

    That would be great Baz, it can get busy and it's a good show if you've not been before.

    I'm 50/50 for this just now. If all goes according to plan I'll have just got back from a naval exercise so I'd be OK, but if there's any delays in the at-sea programme then I won't be back until Sunday night

    Quote from their website: We've decided to make entry FREE. Yes FREE. Why have we decided to do this?

    - We've all missed shows over the last couple of years and we think a few have been lost and wont come back. Shows work when they have a great reputation and the balance of atttendees to traders is right. No punters and the trade wont come.
    Run for your life - there are stupid people everywhere!
