Colours 2017 is on! 

The date of Saturday 16th September is now formally confirmed for the show. Once again it will be a one day show but will feature all the things you love about Colours; great traders, demo games, competitions and of course the bring and buy.

Sposored by: KR Multi-case
We are really pleased to announce the on-going sponsorship of KR Multi-case. Their generous sponsorship in 2016 meant that we were able to give away some really excellent prizes in the the tournaments.


You may now make booking enquiries via the contact form and we will get back to you. When contacting us it would be helpful if you can state what footage you are looking for and whether you are wanting  demonstration space at your stand. You can also ask for ground or first floor space but please remember that we are unable to guarantee the floor.


If you are interested in putting a game on we'd love to hear from you. Again, use the general contact form. A good description and links to photos are really helpful as we are trying to showcase the best in wargaming. Note: whilst we are happy to take enquiries now we wont confirm place until later. This is predominantly to maintain a balance of theme, scale and periods of history. 


In due course we'll start to announce the competitions that will be run. If you are interested in running a competition please get in touch.


If you are travelling there are quite alot of options in Newbury but its worth pointig out that the Racecourse has its own on-site hotel now.

Demo games:

Yes, we are running a B&B. This remains one of the most popular attractions of Colours and we're keen to make it run well. In previous years we've had feedback that you dont like long checking in queues and overflowing tables. As a result we are going to continue with lasy years process which seemed to work well.
Check-in is 20p per item and a 10% commission fee applies to all sold items. Full T&C will be published with the form but the usual statements of left at your own risk and if not picked up we assume you've gifted it us apply.
Checking in: 
We will run two checking in lines;

Queue 1 (by the wall, which will have tables so you can write the forms out, if you've not done it before hand) - a maximum of 2 forms per queuing session can be completed.
Queue 2 - For those that have fully pre-completed the forms - a maximum of 4 forms per queuing session will be accepted.
Put simply - if you want to put a large number of items on the B&B you queue more than once. 
What's allowed:
We'd love to take it all but there have been persistent issues with dumping items which have a low level of interest or are difficult to manage. Therefore:
Items which will NOT be accepted :-
  • no boxes of mixed books and magazines (A bundle of securely tied together magazines is ok as a single item) 
  • no 'multi-item' boxes - everything must be individually ticketed and priced
  • no non-wargaming material
  • single items that take up lots of space eg large magazine collections may not accepted. Check before.
 Some common sense guidelines on what does sell and does not sell, should also help:
  • old rules particularly GW are hard to sell - please don't bring
  • old videos and even DVD - tend not to do well
  • made up plastic kits don't sell and are hard to display - again please don't bring 
  • items that take up a lot of display space - that 4' square castle may look good but in reality is nightmare to handle. Check before bringing
  • nicely presented items will have a better chance of selling, at a better price - i.e. a sturdy box will go a long way 
  • if you think it won't sell on eBay for a good price then don't bring it - it generally won't sell well here
  • price to sell and have a best offer price
