Ticket FAQs

Everyone attending the show needs a show Entry Ticket. This gives full access to the Trade Halls, Demo games, Open Gaming Area, Family Zone, Playtest, and Seminars. In other words your Entry ticket plus the Trade stand fees is what pays for the show as well as the accommodation costs of the army of volunteers who make Expo happen.

In addition if you want to play in any Tournament or Roleplaying Game there is an additional Event Fee as specified on each Event Page. This is what pays for the EXTRA rooms we need to accommodate all the tournaments, all the acres of cloth we use for them, prize support for those events that are unsponsored, trophies and Umpire/ Gms expenses and accommodation as it is fair that folk who give up their time to run the events are not out of pocket. Generally when you add it all up, Tournaments and RPG's actually cost Expo money to run and that is why we ask tournament players to also buy an Entry ticket.

SINGLE DAY TICKET: Adults £15, Young Adult (11 to 15 years) £10. Family £40.

We want everyone to be able to come and enjoy UKGE. If you are attending UKGE and need a carer to facilitate your visit then consider this:

1. If your Carer is also a gamer and will be playing the games and be fully involved as an attendee themselves then they pay full rates like all other gamers.

2. But If you are attending UK Games Expo and due to a disability need a carer to get in and round UKGE BUT the carer is not themselves interested in games  (or their ability to enjoy the show is significantly reduced) we do look at a discount or free ticket for the Carer. Contact [email protected] and we will discuss the matter further.

When booking Tickets please ensure you are familiar with the attendee terms and conditions.

How do I request a refund before the show?

Refunds are requested by logging into your customer account and visiting the orders page.

Click on the order you want fully or partially refunded.

The details of this order will be shown.

Click on the "request refund" button below the order you want refunded.

You can request a complete refund or a partial refund.

Follow the refund instructions on that page.

Please note we don't mind why you need a refund which is why there isn't a space to explain. We are happy to refund your tickets before the show if you can't use them or don't want them. We understand that sometimes life gets in the way.

I have tried the "refund request" but still do not have a refund what should I do?

Refunds can take up to three working days to process so please allow enough time for us to deal with your request. Your refund may not appear in your bank until 10 working days after we have refunded it. If you have not had a refund after 10 working days the feel free to contact Tony Hyams.

Please be aware that in the event of refund requests made in the 7 days prior to the convention we may not process the refund until 2 weeks after the event.

Refunds are not accepted if requested after the show.

At the Show

If an Attendee has purchased an Event Ticket (other than for a miniatures’ tournament), but is then unable to participate in the tournament or role playing game for which he had bought an Event Ticket, he may present the Event Ticket to the admin desk and request a refund. Refunds will only be made if the admin desk manager in their absolute discretion considers that there is a reasonable chance that the Event Ticket could be re-sold. Therefore requests for a refund made within 4 hours of the start time are unlikely to be met.

While we do not swap or exchange tickets, (Things can get a bit messy), you can simply request a refund for your current tickets and purchase the new tickets you require.
