About Us 

The London Grand Tournament, LGT Presents or simply The LGT is a tabletop wargaming convention that is centered around organised play. 

Originally conceived in a pub late one cold winter night, the LGT has grown from a Warhammer 40k tournament to a multi-system wargamming convention, including additional events across all aspects of the wargamming hobby, including Grand Tournaments and Narrative Campaigns across 10+ game systems.

 

Information on the LGT and the tournaments  can be found throughout this website and remember to sign up to our mailing list to keep up to date with all the important announcements.

Our History

Over 100 hobbyists attended in our inaugral year, 2016, with 88 taking to the table tops to take battle it out for the LGT Shield. In 2017 we grew massively and sold over 200 tickets to 40k, 30k and spectators alike. In 2018 we struggled with growing pains as the event skyrocketed to 400+ 40k players and a total convention attendance of over 800 gamers.

As a result in 2019 we refocused on the core of what the LGT is all about, running really good, massive tournaments where the gaming community can gather to eat, drink and be merry. This was a resounding success and in 2020 we unfortunately had a fallow year due to Covid-19.

 

2021 was our most successful year to date both in terms of scale and player experience. Though there's always room for improvement as well as growth and we've got BIG plans for 2022 and beyond. Hopefully you can be part of the journey.
