Hammerhead 2018 Update
Hammerhead v ‘The Beast from the East’
Below is a general update in regards to the re-scheduling of Hammerhead 2018.
Hammerhead has been re-scheduled for Saturday 28th April. This change will understandably affect a number of traders, game presenters and visitors who may have other commitments on this new date. The following information should clarify areas of concern and address a few issues which have inevitably arisen due to the change of date.
The New Date
Saturday 28th April is the earliest date which Newark Showground can accommodate the re-scheduled Hammerhead.
Traders will have their trade space booking automatically transferred to the new date.
Any traders who are unable to attend will receive a full refund, and we will make every effort to accommodate them again at Hammerhead 2019.
Trade space which does become available as a result of date change, will be offered to traders already on the waiting list at the standard early booking price of £50 per 6ft, with a guaranteed minimum stand depth of 8ft.
All the participation game presenters will be contacted to ascertain their availability on the new date. If they wish to make any changes to their participation e.g. title of game, rule system, size of table required etc., these will be accommodated.
There may be a number of other clubs or groups who would like to come and present a game on the new date, and because the participation games are very much the beating heart of Hammerhead, we will always endeavour to accommodate an extra game or two.
Visitors who bought on-line Tickets
All Hammerhead entry tickets which have been bought on-line will automatically be transferred to the new date. Anyone who has bought an on-line ticket and is unable to attend on the 28th April will receive a full refund via PayPal.
Tabletop Sales Bookings
These will automatically be transferred to the new date. We will contact people within one month of the show to confirm your booking. The table top sales is now closed to new bookings but will open again on 28th March, four weeks before the show, when it will then be possible to book any of the remaining time slots.
A very big thank you to everyone for the help, support and encouragement that we have already received as we start to make preparations for the new show date. A special word of thanks goes to all the folks who shared the information about the postponement of Hammerhead to the later date on the internet. They all helped to disseminate the information so efficiently that on the Saturday morning, at the showground, we had nobody turn up expecting the show to still be on!
