The Event

Join fellow Yakkers at the Newark Showground, NG24 2NY, UK on the weekend of 23-24th September 2023 for the YakTribe event of the year.  We’ll be playing a bespoke Necromunda campaign using the free Necromunda Community Edition rules (NCE) to play out a gripping campaign devised by the most fiendish minds from the YakTribe, er, tribe.

Your ticket guarantees you entry to the event, which this year will be held at the Newark Showground in the Sir Stewart Goodwin pavilion.  We will also have use of the adjoining Sheldon suite, which will be used as a break-out room and during the evening, some other games which people may want to bring.  The cost of the ticket is £45, that’s £22.50/day, and we have the facilities for the entire 48 hours, with gaming continuing into the silly hours if you would like too!

Food is not provided as part of the ticket price, but there are many local eateries nearby including all manner of fast food restaurants, supermarkets and cafes. Tea and coffee making facilities will be available at the venue.
