About Us

Welcome to the homepage of Newbury & Reading Wargames Society Our lively and friendly weekly club sessions and Hermitage Games Days feature games of all types – wargames, boardgames and role play games, from historical to Science Fiction and Fantasy. Periods include Ancients, Medieval, Renaissance, 18th Century, Napoleonic, American Civil War, 19th Century and Colonial, World War II and Modern, and feature wargames ranging from large scale battles to skirmishes on land to naval warfare, aerial combat and starwars. Where ever your interests, whatever the rules, we’ll have players ready to take you on.

What’s more, we also organise an annual open day, ‘CALL TO ARMS‘, one of the first wargaming shows on the calendar each year, and historically the Colours show in Newbury.

We have close links with Berkshire Scale Replicas, Newbury Scale Model Club and Spiky Club.
