News, events and schools' information for families across Bath and West Wiltshire

Families from across the Bath region are being invited to take part in the Bath Board Game Day at Komedia, with early bird tickets now on sale!

The event is being organised by local charity Julian House, with it set to take place after previously being delayed twice by the pandemic. The event, which first took place in November 2019, will be held on Sunday 20 February 2022 in Komedia, Bath. The charity is calling on board game fans young and old to join them, play games and have fun for a good case. 

Gamers, new and experienced, can choose to come along for the whole day, 10am-8pm or just half a day and will have the opportunity to pick and play lots of different games from the games library including big blockbuster hits, classics and indie gems. Whether it’s a quick and playful game of bluffing and laughter perfect for young children and families, or a lengthy game full of strategy and skill for avid gamers, there’s something for everyone. 

The event is proudly sponsored by Blue Orange Games who have a reputation for producing high-quality games across the world. They will have you on adventures around the planet, from acquiring kingdoms and chasing dragons to building theme parks and growing trees, there is something for every table top young and old. 

Attendees will also have the chance to join on the day tournaments and enter a board game bundle raffle. 

Event organiser, Jessica Gay, said, “Bath Board Game Day is all about having fun with friends and family for a good cause. You can feel good in the knowledge your ticket fee is helping to support vulnerable and at risk people and children experiencing homelessness or escaping domestic abuse. 

“The day offers the chance to be part of something bigger and join us in our mission to alleviate homelessness in and around Bath.

“We’ve very pleased that Bath Gaming Group have again kindly offered to support the event, meaning a packed games library and game hosts on hand to help novice participants with game rules and instructions.”
