UK RPG Convention Calendar

2021: DECEMBER | 2022: JANUARY | FEBRUARY | JUNE | AUGUST | DECEMBER | Regular Events and Megagames


This is a list of conventions and events, taking place in the British Isles, with at least some significant role-playing games element. I try to keep it current, but I make absolutely no guarantees about anything I mention. I reserve the right not to include events that appear to be only very marginally relevant to RPG'ing, and I have a bias in favour of 'tabletop' RPGs. While Covid lockdowns are disrupting the face-to-face convention scene, I'll also try to list some online events here, but I'm afraid that my information on those may be patchy.

RSS Feed: Neil Blumfield has kindly set up an RSS feed based on this site, the URL for which is I should say that I've not tried this out myself, especially since this page changed its URL.

Calendar File Form: Roger Bell West has set up a site which converts this page to standard calendar file format, and updates that file periodically. See for this. Or - I'm told that by using webcal:// instead, you should be able to "subscribe" to this calendar. Again, I haven't looked at this since this page changed URL.

Organisers Note:

Mail If you want your convention listed here, e-mail me with a date and URL.

Advice on Organising Conventions:

I once saved the text of a Usenet discussion on the art of UK RPG convention organisation; it's on this site as ConOrganising.txt. It's probably partly out of date these days. Anyone interested in the subject might also do very well to look at the notes on the subject published by the organisers of Concrete Cow.

Linking to this Page:

This page was created as a public service, and I'm happy for it to be used as widely as possible (so long as I don't get blamed for anything). Anyone creating or maintaining another RPG-related page is welcome to include a link to this URL.


This is a completely voluntary, non-profit project which I perform for its own sweet sake. Still, if anyone wants to encourage me in this, please feel free to use the tip jar:

Alternatively, you can buy a copy of my mini-book, A Dozen Castle Images, which is priced at "Pay What You Like", and pay me something for it.
