About Us

The idea behind Kings of the North is simple – get a bunch of guys (and gals!) together and stick them in one place to play games for the weekend. Have fun, have a laugh. Hopefully want to come back and do it all again next year.
Behind every simple idea is a lot of work and that requires a team – ours consists of 3 guys and one girl (and wherever your mind is going it can stop right there!)
Those 4 are otherwise known as the team from Folkvangr Events and the wonderful guys from Worhamma and Flipside Café, as well as a consortium of other helpers including MiBs from Steve Jackson Games, Atlas Games Special Ops, Malifaux henchmen and Spartan Gamers Vangaurds who are all making this event work for you, the gamer.
Fólkvangr Events is the brainchild of Michael, coerced, pushed, dragged and otherwise extracted from the dusty recesses of his mind into flaming reality with the help of Megan. The idea behind Fólkvangr Events: what is the ultimate war gaming experience and how can we provide it? What is the best time you can possibly have with fellow war gamers filled with opportunities to try fantastic new games as well as play those you love, all whilst getting some awesome food cooked for you as well! The answer? Ultimate war gaming weekends packed full of great games, great company, great food and a great time. This is what Folkvangr Events is dedicated to bringing you.
Kings of the North is the first wargaming retreat that Fólkvangr Events have organised and both Michael and Megan would like to thank the guys at Worhamma/Flipside Café for helping to make it happen.
Established in Sunderland by Andrew and Victor as a club for themselves and their friends, Worhamma has quickly grown into one of the premier war gaming clubs in the country, playing a variety of systems including Warhammer Fantasy Battle, Warhammer 40,000, Malifaux and Dystopian Wars as well as a fantastic variety of board games. Worhamma also operate a shop at the club where you can get your latest fix of models and games.
Worhamma meets every Thursday evening at St Anne’s Community Centre in Sunderland and at the Flipside Cafe in Sunderland city centre on Sundays.
Opened by Andrew and Victor, the guys behind Worhamma, Flipside Café offers fantastic brews, brilliant banter and some great board games. As well as being a café it is also Sunderland’s friendly local gaming store, where you can buy some awesome board games and reinforcements for your miniature armies.
Sunday evenings also play host to the Worhamma club, where you can play board games, RPGs and war games.
Flipside Cafe will be running a store at Kings of the North where you will be able to buy from a wide range of board and card games as well as brand new models to add to your armies. They will also be selling beer and snacks throughout the day into the evening on the Friday and Saturday nights.
