BARRAGE is a wargames show in the heart of the Midlands in the UK, and now in its 4th year, BARRAGE will be bigger & better than last year with 30+ traders, more participation game, a bring & buy and a number of tournaments!



From a standing start in 2013 and with two incredible shows under our belts in 2013 and 2014, it's time to think BIGGER. So with some intrepidation we moved the show to Blessed William Howard High School for 2015 and changing the show's name to 'Barrage'.

The 2015 show was amazing, but we can do better. As we head into the 2016 season, our fingers are crossed that #Barrage2016 blows your socks off. We will be back at the new venue on Sunday 10th July 2016 bring you an even bigger better show.


Over 30 traders are confirmed for the 2016 show, more participation games, and a bring and buy. We will also be hosting a number of competitions.

So mark Sunday 10th July 2016 in your diaries and come and spend a day taking part in on of the Midlands biggest wargames show.


The emphasis for the 2016 Show is stay and play with as many of the games as possible being participatory. Clubs wishing to put on a participation game should also complete the form on the contact page.

We are in need of volunteers to help out with the show, anyone willing to offer help please get in touch at info@barrage.org.uk.

Our 2016 venue will accommodate 30+ Traders, more participation games and host tournaments and provide a 'Bring and Buy'.

The school is centrally located in Stafford, being only 5 minutes walk from the Railway Station. There is plenty of space for parking (250+ cars). There is a Tesco (cashpoint) and The Kings Horse (Hungry Horse) PH less than 5 minutes walk away.

Please note that the school buildings and grounds are strictly no smoking (including vaping). Please can all visitors to the show adhere to this rule. You can view and download a site plan of the venue here: http://media.wix.com/ugd/2242ff_268543b79f7c4379bc362a867457...

The venue is on Rowley Avenue which is just off the Newport Road (A518) in Stafford. For those driving please follow signs for A518 for Telford/Newport from the town centre. If you are using a sat-nav the postcode is ST17 9AB but please note that we have been advised that it could send you into Brunswick Terrace which is the street before Rowley Avenue, as you leave the town centre.
