Coming soon to Sunny Sheffield...

31st May 2017

Yes, it’s that time of year again!    The Joy of Six 2017 is just a few weeks away and we thought you’d like to hear about what’s on offer.

JOS17 will be held on Sunday 16th July from 10.00am to 4.00pm.   The venue is the spectacular Heartspace Atrium at Sheffield Hallam University.    This City centre location is near to cheap on-street parking and a hop skip and a jump or two away from Sheffield mainline railway station and travel interchange.  Entrance will be a measly £3.00.

Right. That’s the boring bit out of the way.  What’s on offer?

We’ve got some of the finest small scale traders in the world under one roof:

  • Baccus 6mm
  • Brigade Games
  • Britannicus Games
  • Commission figurines
  • Games at War
  • G S Miniature workshop
  • Heroics and Ros
  • Leven Miniatures
  • Rapier
  • Timecast
  • Wargames Emporium

Plus a Bring and Buy.  We’re trying to squeeze a couple more into the show, so stay posted.

Yes, that’s the retail therapy bit, but what about the games you ask?   Well, have we got some treats for you.   More games than last year and with a very wide spread of subjects:

Well over two thirds of these games will be participation events, so there will be plenty to do while you are the show.  We’ll have the usual masterclass in 6mm painting from Dr Mike and the ever popular seminar programme.

There will be lots of good quality, wargamer-friendly, pig-derived food on offer.   What more could you want from a wargames show?

I’ll be posting more details about the show and and the games as we get nearer to the date.

As if all of this were not enough, we’ll also be running our ever-popular Baccus workshop tours on the Saturday before the show (15th July).  Places are limited and fill up very quickly.  If you want to book yourselves on to this year’s tour, please get in touch asap to reserve your place.
