The 2016 Britcon Trade Show
As well as our competitions the Britcon Trade Show will be returning to the now-familiar surroundings of UMIST in Manchester over the weekend of 13th-14th August 2016, alongside the BHGS Britcon Convention.

Reserve a ticket in advance and we will let you in for free – yes, that’s right, no entry cost at all! We know there is sort of a recession out there, so we want you to be able to spend all of your hard earned cash with our loyal traders… and you can’t say fairer than that!

By registering in advance we will also be able to send you up to date information on who will be there, what new products they will have on show, and whether they have any Britcon special offer at the show as well – so not only do you not have to pay to get in, the stuff you buy may even be cheaper too !
