The 2024 Gripping Beast Grand Melee moves to the very heart of the UK wargaming scene, Nottingham, and will take place over the weekend of 9-11th August at the BHGS Britcon Wargames Convention and Trade Show

This year we will have range of Gripping Beast events for you to take part in, including (of course) the Official Saga Grand Melee, as well as Saga Iron Man and Swordpoint, all fully supported by the team at Gripping Beast

While gaming officially starts on the morning of the 10th, the venue will be open from mid afternoon on Friday, and we will be arranging a fun event for those arriving on the Friday and wanting to meet old and new friends and have some fun before battle commences

The full Player Pack for each event is available from the BHGS Britcon website
