Getting there

Visiting Colours a.k.a. navigating the Racecourse

​Newbury Racecourse has been massively developed in the last 12 months. There are now two entrances - the traditional entrance and the newer Hambridge Lane Bridge next to Nuffield Fitness. It is not possible to drive between the these two points across the race course as access is prevented by security bollards.

The main entrance to Colours will be on the A4 between Newbury and Thatcham. Look for brown signs to the racecourse. At the crossroads, drive south on the B3421, over the river and drive straight over the roundabout and over the railway. Turn right and drive around the Nuffield gym. Look for signs to Car Park 4 as you approach the racecourse stands.
The old entrance past Stroud Green will be open to Car Park 1. From there, follow the signs on foot to the Grandstand.
Traders must use the A4 entrance. Drive past Cark Park 4 and look for a marshal. Only vans, trailers and heavily-laden cars will be admitted.

Walking advice: if walking from  the Racecourse station exit the station on the Racecource side. Bear left and you should find an entrance from car park 4. If walking from Newbury Railway station then exit on the West bound side of the station. Follow the map - there is an underpass at the BurgerKing roundabout.

The B&B

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 last 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, and obscure RPG 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 and good labelling 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
