Followers of Partizan will know that we don't like to boast about the shows, we prefer to let them sell themselves. Hence the often understated advertising. We could, for example, claim to be 'the best show in Nottinghamshire', or 'probably the best one day show in the world', but we'd rather you came along and made your own mind up. If you want to know how good the games are look through some back issues of 'Wargames Illustrated', 'Battlegames' or 'WSS'. If you want to know what the show is like, ask one of the listed traders how they rate it compared to other shows. Or ask a wargamer who knows....
And if you're reading this from somewhere that we English would call 'abroad', isn't it time for that trip to England?

"Partizan maintains its lead and just keeps getting better."
Wargamer's Notebook, Wargames
"favourite shows [of 2000] Partizan again; all three editions were outstanding in different ways. And having won so many times they get to keep the cup."
Mike Siggins, Wargames Illustr
"Newark's Partizan probably presents the finest example [of specialist shows] as far as public displays go. This is a prestigious presentation of the hobby"
Tim Hallam, Wargames Illustrat
"If I can only get to one convention in the year I'm happy so long as it's Newark."
Dominic Skelton, Wargames Illu
I came up from Colchester for my first Partizan and was very impressed by the organisation, the venue and the show. There was a good mix of traders, displays and participation games and historical societies.
