Snow! Updates about any Changes

Update Tuesday 6th March 10.20am.

The Events team are currently processing refunds for the Open Day and Grand Clash, and planning for when the Open Day can be rescheduled to.

For us to reschedule means talking to a few teams, making decisions about other events we’re already planning, and about Open Gaming for general visitors. There’s always something happening at Warhammer World!

Rather than rush into a decision, we’re looking for the date which is best, and we’ll let you know big and loud once that decision is made.


Snow Update Friday 2nd March 3.00 pm

Main details of the changes to this weekend can still be found in the 12.00pm post below, but we have a couple of quick updates for you based on questions we’ve had.

  • We are remaining closed all day on Friday March 2nd.
  • You can register for the Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire Grand Clash from 8.30 am, and the first round starts at 9.20 am.
  • Bugman’s Bar will be open for all visitors from 9.00 am, and Warhammer World will open fully for all visitors from 10.00am.
  • The Warhammer Underworlds: Shapespire Grand Clash is only for the original ticket holders. We’re not arranging to fill “no show” gaps, as that person may just be running late due to the weather and it would be a shame for them to arrive and find their space taken.
  • The Season of Sowing is fully booked, but if you would like to arrive and check for any drop outs to take their place, you are welcome to. Of course, we can’t say that anyone will drop out, but you are welcome to try!
  • We’ll have bring and battle gaming tables available for gaming, but we are unable to take table reservation requests for the weekend, due to insufficient staff access to the booking system. Bring your miniatures, and see if you can get a space.
  • The Dioramas book will still be available.

Snow Update Friday 2nd March 12.00 pm

If you have been awaiting news of the Warhammer World events being held this weekend, we have the final updates for you.

Due to the tireless efforts of our Site Services team over the last 24 hours, Warhammer World will be open on Saturday 3rd March 10.00am to 6.00pm. Bugman’s will be open from 9.00am, for those early arrivals who want to get a hot breakfast.

Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire Grand Clash will still be taking place, but we will be refunding all of the tickets. That means a free event if you’re a ticketholder who has battled the elements! Whenever you arrive, you can join in.

The Warhammer Age of Sigmar Open Day and Golden Demon will be cancelled. We will be rescheduling the event, and announcing details soon, so don’t refund your ticket just yet, as we’ll be putting plans in place for refunding and/or reallocating your tickets to the future date.

The Season of Sowing will still take place on Sunday. We’ll see you there to roll some dice!

Entry to the Warhammer World Exhibition will be free for everyone on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th of March. Enjoy fantastic miniatures where it’s warm and dry.

It’s not been an easy decision to make, and we thank you for being patient while we have waited to be certain of the situation. Although we have been able to make the site safe at Warhammer World, we’re still unable to get all of the content and staff for the Open Day here safely, and a great many customers are unable to travel to us.

Look out for the new Open Day date being announced soon, and if you are coming to Warhammer World this weekend, please take your time, and travel safely.

Fenris Snow Update Friday 2nd March 8.41 am

  • Warhammer World will be closed today.
  • We are currently planning for all events to go ahead as expected this weekend, but please check back on Friday lunchtime for updates, when the final decision will be made.

Our Site Services team have been taking extra measures to create a safe site for visitors and vehicles, but with snow continuing to settle on anything that is cleared, and wet areas freezing over, we have to be realistic about what can be safely achieved and maintained.

We also need to consider the safety of our customers and staff travelling to and from Warhammer World, with many roads continuing to be in poor condition.

Snowmageddon Update Thursday 1st March 12.36 pm

  • Warhammer World will remain closed today.
  • The first of our monthly Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire evenings is cancelled. Not to worry though, we will re-arrange it, so watch out for announcements.
  • We will probably be closed on Friday, as we don’t expect the weather to get better overnight, and we need to ensure the car park is safe for visitors and vehicles. Please check https://www.facebook.com/GWWarhammerWorld/ on Friday morning for updates.
  • We are currently planning for all events to go ahead as expected this weekend, but please check https://www.facebook.com/GWWarhammerWorld/ on Friday lunchtime for updates.

  • If we do open, we will be open until 6.00pm at the latest.
  • The first of our monthly Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire evenings is cancelled. Not to worry though, we will re-arrange it, so watch out for announcements.
We are working towards being open Friday and Saturday, but this depends on the car park being a safe surface for visitors and vehicles. We can’t predict if the weather will work with or against us on this!
On Friday the decision will be made and communicated about any changes to events taking place this weekend.
