When and Where is Warhammer Fest?

Usually held in the Ricoh Arena in Coventry over a Saturday and Sunday, in May, the exact date is announced a few months before, with tickets then going on sale shortly after.

New for 2018 we also have the first Warhammer Fest Europe event! We’re taking everything you love about Warhammer Fest and taking it over the Channel to let even more people enjoy it.

Tickets are available for separate days, or the full weekend, and previously we’ve had Tournament tickets too – these combine the excitement of a full weekend gaming event, with access to Warhammer Fest as well.
