Contingency
Hunstanton, UK - 23-27 January

Con-Tingency is a five day charity event in Hunstanton UK, with all the money made supporting worthwhile charities. There is no charge to attend the event; GMs earn reward tokens usable to play games or or to spend at any of the stalls.

While games are very much the focus of the event, there will be a small trade area with a bring-and-buy stall as well as a monster raffle on the Sunday. All the proceeds of the event are donated to charity. RuneQuest and Call of Cthulhu events are always fully booked, so The convention is looking for more GMs to increase the number of tables available to players. Contact Con-Tingency if you can help!
