The Gatekeepers


The Gatekeepers are a war games club based in Shrewsbury who run a club night on Fridays. We meet at the English Bridge Workshops between the hours of 6:30 pm and 11 pm, although most people generally don’t start gaming until about 7pm

A wide range of games are played at the club, they include but are not limited to:

  • Age of Sigmar
  • Warhammer 40,000
  • Warhammer Underworlds
  • Malifaux

Most members are also willing to try new game systems if you wish to play something else.

All tables and scenery are provided although you are more than welcome to bring your own pieces if you would like to use them in games. New members are always welcome but we advise that you join our forum and organise a game beforehand to avoid disappointment. Due to the mature nature of the club members must be over 16.
