The feedback from our visitors, traders (and the bar team!) is that we assembled a great bunch of gamers at the venue with this weekend, not only in terms of how much was spent with the trade stands (but, yes, that did help!!) but more importantly in terms of how everyone taking part contributed to creating a really friendly, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere across the whole event all weekend.
That in turn certainly made our job as organisers much easier, and also was greatly appreciated by all of our hard-working TO's, who really are the ones doing the heavy lifting over the weekend in terms of planning and managing and (hopefully infrequently!) chipping in with the occasional bit of umpiring across all of the various tournaments taking place at Britcon each year.
We've already uploaded all of the results from our events to the Britcon 2023 results page on our website, as well as adding a whole gallery of photos taken over the weekend - see if you can spot yourself (or your army!)
For 2024 we’re already planning on returning in the same "2nd weekend in August" slot next year, with a post-show washup meeting with the venue already in the diary to sort out the handful of niggling annoyances that were reported to us this year - most of which seems to boil down to "more shampoo, more lighting, more sausages ...and more beer!" - which if we can fix with the help of the venue will no doubt ensure a bigger and better Britcon next year
The full list of traders and demos at the Britcon Trade Show is also still online on our website, so if there's anyone you missed, anyone you saw but have forgotten their name, anyone who'd already sold out of the stuff you wanted by the time you got to their stand please make sure to visit our online exhibitor listing and use it to get in touch with our traders after the show.

PS - We also made a donation of £51 to SSAFA, the UK Armed Forces Charity this year - or more accurately, those of you who forgot to take your pint glasses back to the bar on Friday night to claim your £1 deposits did, as the venue security team hoovered them all up after you'd all gone home and then made the excellent suggestion to us that we should hand them in the next day and donate all of the resulting the refunds to charity - which we did!
