FilmSim at Tuddenham Sun 13th Sep 2020

Sun, 13th September

£25£50

Gates open at 0800 - please arrive before 0900.

Please allow enough time to book in, get set up and chrono guns BEFORE 0930.

We START at 0930 and finish around 1500 with a break for lunch in the middle.

ALL players MUST now bring a completed consent form with them to ALL games. This will replace then sign in sheet and is intended to speed up the arrival process as well as reduce contact. Under 18s need to use the new form now.

PLEASE NOTE: Our open days are currently running at reduced capacity to ensure that we can meet social distancing guidelines for the protection of our staff, crew and customers.

A ticket is required for access to site. If you do not have a ticket, please do not turn up and ask us to squeeze you in. To ensure that we are fair to everybody and to control social distancing we will be forced to turn you away - please don't put us in that position!

We have reduced quantities of rental guns available to ensure that we can decontaminate them before reuse. We will only be including a single magazine (300rds) with the rental along with eye/face protection if required. No clothing or pouches will be supplied.


To comply with current regulations, groups of more than six persons will have to arrive seperately and not mingle with other groups in the safe-zone.
You will need to be prepared to sort your admin from your car rather than inside the safe zone building which will be closed to customers. If the weather is likely to be wet, we recommend that you consider purchasing a cheap gazebo to erect over your boot. If you do not have a car or suitable small shelter, please contact us BEFORE purchasing your ticket to ensure that we can safely accommodate you.
There will be no food or drink available on site - please make your own arrangements.
We recommend that you wear gloves and a facemask as much as possible to help reduce infection risk. To encourage regular hand-washing we will provide water and hand sanitiser - we recommend that you bring a washing-up bowl and some soap if possible.

All persons arriving on site will be required to leave us a contact number for NHS test & trace. This will be kept for 21 days and then destroyed - it will not be used for any other purpose.


FilmSim is back!!!
We've made several changes to things like the bandaging mechanic to ensure compliance with COVID-19 and the safety of our customers. Updated rules can be found here.
FilmSim is an experience like no other! Designed to make you feel like you are playing a key role in a film or computer game, the FilmSim experience is more involved than a skirmish game, but not as complex as a MilSim event.
FilmSim open days are suitable for everyone, from the absolute beginner to the seasoned veteran airsofter and rental equipment is available. Our friendly team and regular players will make sure you have a great day.
The rules are slightly more involved than on a skirmish event to encourage more immersion in the scenario, and role-playing is highly encouraged. Each game has a theme which will usually be posted on the Facebook event page a couple of weeks prior. Participation in the theme is optional, but you'll have way more fun if you dress the part and put on a daft accent!
The gameplay usually lasts for around two hours at a time morning and afternoon. This makes for a more relaxed rate of play as well as the opportunity to plan and execute flanking manouvers, pincer attacks or distractions etc. There are usual several objectives to complete, sometimes requiring one to be completed before another can be tackled. Where possible, players are given the freedom to approach the objectives in whatever manner they think will work best, but most will usually require a more tactical approach than the usual "rush it" skirmish method. If you can't seem to get near an objective, fall back, regroup with other team members and figure out another approach.
Teamwork is a vital part of FilmSim - some objectives can be tackled solo, but most will be much easier when planned with team-mates.
Two-way radios are extrememly useful and each team will be assigned a frequency in the UHF band from our licence for team chat. You are welcome to use your own radios for this as long as they are set up correctly and you are operating on your assigned channel. Please check well before the start of the game as we always need to have a channel reserved for marshal safety comms. For communication within individual fireteams we recommend PMR446 radios. They are cheap, easy to use and do not require a license. They also do a great job of simulating the range and application of military PRR sets. You are welcome to use these on any of our sites without asking.
We prefer to use camouflage to identify teams where possible so it's always helpful if players can bring more than one set of kit with them and be prepared to change, however if this is not practical we will use team armbands.
A selection of snacks, pot noodles and hot & cold drinks is available at lunchtime - cash only for these.
