The Black Library Weekender is less than two months away! Tickets for this incredible event, taking place on the 9th and 10th of November – are available now, and selling fast. We know you have some questions, and we have answers. Read on to discover what the weekender is, what’s happening, who’ll be there and more.


What is the Black Library Weekender?

The Black Library Weekender is the biggest fiction-focused event of the Warhammer calendar. Taking place over two days in the luxurious Belfry Hotel in Nottingham, it’s the ultimate celebration of Black Library’s books and audio dramas, packed with authors, artists, voice actors and much more.


What Will Be Happening There?

The main events at the weekender are the seminars. In these, panels of guests discuss a topic, ranging from “Defenders of Mankind: The Adeptus Astartes” to “The Art of Scriptwriting”. There’s also a chance to hear authors talk about their latest projects. Among these seminars, you’ll find Mike Brooks discussing Navigators, Warhammer Horror authors revealing the secrets behind Invocations, and Gav Thorpe delving into his new Siege of Terra novel, The First Wall.


Check out the full range of seminars – 25 of them across the weekend, including the ever-exciting “Coming Soon from Black Library” – in the full schedule!


As well as seminars, there are chances across the weekend to get your books signed by all of the authors present, and on Sunday morning, you can relax and chat to fifteen guests – and five of Black Library’s editors – in relaxed surroundings.
