StratLAN Summer 2015 Seat Picker opening Thursday at 5pm, plus more info

June 24th, 2015 Comments off

StratLAN is almost here, and here’s all the info you need to enjoy yet another Summer Strat event.


We apologise for the delay on the Seat Picker – we are just putting the final tweaks on the integration, but in order to not delay the picking of your seat we are using a manual Seat Picker process for this event. The Seat Picker will open at 17:00 tomorrow (Thursday 25th). To choose you seat, fill in the form linked below after 17:00 tomorrow.

You can view the current floor plan here.

Click here to access the Seat Picker form.

We cannot guarantee that your seating request will be fulfilled exactly, but we will do the best we can with each request that comes in. Please do not make any extra requests until 24 hours pass from your initial requests; We will update requests as often as possible leading up to the event, but any spam in our system may get accidentally skipped.


If you are a season ticket holder and you had an “official seat” on the seating plan last event, we have seated you in your “official seat” already. If you would like to change this seat, please contact us as soon as you can.

BBQWe are holding a BBQ at StratLAN this event. The BBQ takes place on Saturday of the event and costs £7 per person. We will be buying meat based off of the pre-event ticket sales, so if you haven’t yet purchased your ticket please do so via the link below. Make sure to pack a pair of flip flops as there may be some… additional outdoor activities!

Buy your BBQ tickets here.


Red versus Blue returns to StratLAN! This Summer event is taking place over the 4th of July, and will be based around the theme of British versus Americans. The games will be revealed on the forum by our Community Admin EvilGav soon, so keep an eye on those for the latest developments.

That’s all for now. Make sure to select your seat tomorrow after 5pm, and otherwise we look forward to hosting yet another smashing Summer LAN event!

See you there!

Changes to our ticketing system

April 17th, 2015 No comments

The StratLAN Summer Party 2015 is in a short few months, and we wanted to give you a quick update regarding changes to our ticketing system.

We have made the decision to switch to EventBrite for StratLAN ticket sales. If you attend our main event Insomnia, you may already be familiar with EventBrite as it is now the system we use to sell all of our Insomnia ticket types. StratLAN tickets will not cost any more than they previously did as we are absorbing any additional processing fees.

If you already purchased your StratLAN ticket you should have received some form of communication, but your ticket has been transferred correctly. Information regarding the Seat Picker will be released at a later date. Please bring your EventBrite ticket (either printed out or displayed on a smartphone or tablet screen) with you to the venue, as we will need to scan it to check you into the event.

Tickets can be booked here now.

Seat Picker for the StratLAN Winter Warmer 2015 opening Thursday at 6pm

January 6th, 2015 No comments

2014 is over. We’ve consumed our combined weight thrice over in turkey, trimming and pud and listened to the same eight festive hits more times than we care to admit, but now it’s all over; it’s time to put drunken relatives and “inventive” secret santa gifts out of your mind, and look forward to a 2015 packed full of awesome gaming events.

We just wanted to give you a quick update that the Seat Picker for our first StratLAN event of 2015 will be opening on this Thursday at 6pm. To select your seat, all you need to do is secure your ticket to the StratLAN Winter Warmer 2015 (Feb 12th-15th).

The Winter Warmer is the first of our three StratLAN events this year which also includes the Summer Party 2015 (July 2nd – 6th) and the classic Xmas Party 2015 (December 3rd – 7th). If you plan on attending all three StratLAN events this year, you can save some money with our 2015 Season Ticket which is available now for a mere £150 (£50 per event).

That’s all from us right now, and we hope to see your lovely faces in February for blur, socialising, and the reasonable consumption of alcoholic beverages.

*Anything stored in the walk in fridge is stored at your own risk – we recommend you bring a coolbox and write your name to identify your things! Also the temperature is sometimes not suitable for food use – so don’t expect to store short-life foods in the fridge.
