Britain’s biggest and most important table-top gaming event, the UK Games Expo, is to run workshops for those seeking to expand their skills and will be also providing a platform for those looking to get their games into the market.

Games industry artists Gillian Pierce (Helions Art) and Linda Jones (She Black dragon) will be hosting a workshop in which you can learn more about the fine profession game art. Writer Darren Pierce (Cubicle 7, Mongoose Publishing) will also be running a workshop for wannabe games writers.

Gamers can also chance their hand in The Wyvern’s Lair, where they get to pitch fresh games ideas to industry pros.

Now in its tenth year, the event is so large that it has to be hosted in both Birmingham NEC and the nearby Birmingham Hilton. The UK Games Expo is set to be the table-top gaming event of the year, with everything from X-Wing Tournaments, to Ticket to Ride National Championships. This huge event covers two venues: the NEC Birmingham and the NEC Hilton. Attractions include war-gaming, card games, LARPing, RPGs, and live events amongst much more. Details of the event can be found here.
