Legionary - The Show

Like the club the show has been going for a number of years. Originally run by the Devon Wargames Group we inherited the mantle when their Exmouth venue became too expensive. For a number of years the show was held at the warren of rooms that is the St. David's Hill Community Centre and with a regular mix of traders and gamers became one of the best liked shows on the circuit. Now, with the club's move we have also moved the show to Exeter University, a large hall, free parking and association with the boundless energy of the University clubs it is still the nice show it always was but now it has the extra bite. In a few years we are sure it will have developed into one of the 'must go to' shows on the calendar.

The trade showing for Legionary comes mainly from the South and West of the country (including South Wales) as do the clubs and individuals who put on games and competitions. Additional colour is provided by the regular attendance of Exeter's own re-enactment group, the Isca Contubernium - one year an honour guard in full Roman kit marched to the show from the town centre and drilled outside the hall.
