The cost for a dealer table is only £10 for the whole weekend.
The weekend itinerary will also be adjusted to ensure there is lots of time for you to peruse the dealer room at your leisure.
Please be aware that as a dealer, if you do not also purchase an event ticket you will not be allowed access to the lectures, performances, Hex Factor and the Saturday lunch.

The magical version of an open mic night! Step up, ring the bell and perform your new routine in front of the Doomsday crowd. Hugely popular at Doomsday VIII and the creation of magic legend Jim Critchlow, this is your chance to shine.
The Hex Factor 2020- ACTS NEEDED!
Do you have what it takes to win the Hex Factor 2020? Each performer is given a 10 minute slot in which to display their magic routines, disturbing talents or anything you feel suitable for the Doomsday audience. A panel of judges will give feedback but ultimately the audience will decide the best act of the evening.
The winner will be awarded a full performance spot at Doomsday 12 and a pair of free tickets but more importantly they will win the The Hex Factor trophy!
If you would like to enter The Hex Factor please contact us here.
There will be no ticket sales on the door!
As we need to know the number of attendees prior to the event there will be no tickets sold on the day. All tickets need to be purchased beforehand, anyone turning up unannounced will be fed to the hounds.

If the event is cancelled, rescheduled or has changed location, you are entitled to a refund of at least the face value of the ticket. You are not entitled to a refund if you can no longer attend the event. Ticket deposits are non-refundable.
