I can buy my tickets on the day, right?

You're welcome to risk it (you maverick, you!) but we strongly advise pre-buying your tickets in advance because we reached our 500 capacity the Year before lockdown!

We fully expect the Board Game Festival to sell outSo be smart & buy your tickets ahead of time to avoid disappointment.

I need disabled access - is that possible?

Yep, definitely! There's a disabled access entrance to the side of the hotel, and 2 allocation blue badge parking spaces. Our event takes place on the ground floor, but there are lifts throughout the hotel.

During the event, can I leave then come back?

Of course! All attendees get a wristband on entry that they can show on return.

Do I need to bring cash?

The Angel Hotel accepts card payments for buying drinks & food, and we take card payments at our stall if you want to purchase a new game.

But, that said, it's always wise to have a little bit of cash handy.

Do I need to bring a ticket receipt or proof of purchase on the day?

Feel free to save the confirmation email on your phone, but your name will be on a list so we can just tick you off. 

Great! So, what do I need to do now?

Sit back & start the count down to the best and biggest weekend of the year...
