It's that time of year again..... my annual London pilgrimage.....now falling on Saturday, April 16th and avoiding the usual London Marathon with the pleasant result that hotels are somewhat cheaper and more easily available.....
The Salute freebie....Steampunk theme this year, sculpted by Andy Cooper of Westwind fame. Pic borrowed off the South London Warlords Facebook page.
SALUTE 2016 TICKET PRIZES Last year the South London Warlords gave out major cash prizes for several lucky people that found Golden Tickets in their Salute 2015 carrier bag. We are doing the same this year as well as adding some 'extras'! CASH PRIZES FROM THE SOUTH LONDON WARLORDS There will be four golden tickets in four Salute 2016 carrier bags this year for ADVANCE TICKET HOLDERS ONLY. One ticket is worth £250, another £150 and two £50. These will be CASH PRIZES given on the day to the lucky finders. Also this year KR MULTICASE have given us 150 prize tickets to hide amongst the Salute 2016 carrier bags. These will be for items that can be collected from their stand on the day of the show. And finally WARPLOQUE MINIATURES have let us hide a single special ticket in one of the bags to win a copy of their ARCWORLDE game box set, 'The Battle of Troll Bridge'. Fantastic prizes to look out for in your Salute 2016 carrier bag. Remember, these prize tickets will ONLY be in the ADVANCE TICKET HOLDERS carrier bags....so get your tickets now from the SALUTE website!
