Popular UK Gaming Festival, The Strange Games Festival, Arrives in Sussex again this Summer

This August, gamers up and down the UK will pack up their dice and meeples and head to Hailsham for a long weekend of board games, role-playing, werewolf and more at a beautiful East Sussex campsite.

Aptly named The Strange Games Festival, attendees can enjoy a multitude of weird and wonderful games over a long, chilled weekend of camping, glamping, marquees, campfires, food vans, bars and entertainment.

Whether high intensity social deduction games like Werewolf or Blood on the Clock Tower are your thing, or smaller board games with friends in one of the many marquees is what you’re looking for, The Strange Games Festival boasts a raft of offerings for everyone, no matter what kind of gamer you are. RPGs, mega-games and every board game you could ever hope to play will be available all weekend, all day, every day.

The festival will run from 2pm Friday 26th August through until 4pm Monday 29th August at Bushy Wood in Hailsham, and will include activities like archery and Nerf Wars in addition to the extensive game zones available.

“We’ve been running the festival since 2015,” said Simon Appleton, founder, “and it’s been such a joy to watch the event grow from just 20 tents in a field to the thriving festival it has become. Each year it has grown bigger and bigger, now with many hundreds of people heading south to play for the long weekend. And this year is no different, promising more partners, more entertainment and more gamers than ever before!”


“Absolutely blown away by our first time at the festival this year – the whole experience was sublime from start to finish.”

“Arriving at my first Strange Games Festival last year felt a bit like I’d finally come home!”

“It’s a fantastic weekend and I laughed an awful lot. Even as the festival ended, I was already excited for the next one”

“So awesome to finally get back to The Strange Games Festival, absolutely been the highlight of my year every time I’ve been.”

Weekend tickets cost £75 per person. For more information and to book tickets, head over to www.strangegamesfestival.co.uk
