Turnip On The Docks
11th February 2024
10:00am - 6:00pm
The Great Escape, Grimsby UK
What is Turnip?
Turnip28 is a post-apocalyptic vegetable wargame. Players command Regiments of fantastic miniatures made up of incompetent Snobs, bedraggled Followers and bizarre war machines. You will weep. You will cheer as deranged peasants kick each other to death in the mud.
Turnip on the Docks brings all the chaos of Turnip28 to the East coast. Join the march, fix bayonets, and be ready.

Places to Eat in Grimsby & Cleethorpes
We will have hot and cold drinks and snacks available at The Great Escape for a small charge (cash and card payments accepted).
You are welcome to bring a packed lunch, however, if you would like something more substantial, The Great Escape will offer sandwiches and panini’s for a small charge.
If you would like something different, you will find directions on the map below to the usual chain eateries that are within driving distance, such as McDonalds, KFC, Subway etc. However, a personal recommendation from us would be to try out Mockingbird. Part of Docks Beers, our local brewery in a stunning historical Church, Mockingbird serves a menu including chicken tenders where everything is available as a Mock (Vegan) alternative.
The Great Escape is located on Grimsby Docks. The Docks is accessible from the A180 and A16, and we recommend using the map to the left for full directions.
Arrival on Grimsby Docks
Grimsby Docks is owned and secured by ABP, and you will need to pass through the Security Gates to enter the docks.
If you are stopped, simply tell Security that you are visiting The Great Escape and they will let you through. They may ask for photo ID; a valid driving licence is enough.
They will also be able to offer directions, if you are unsure where to go.
There are plenty of parking bays across the street from The Great Escape. Please try not to park in the car park next door to the building, as this belongs to Alfred Enderby Smokehouse.
Caution should be taken when crossing the road, as the area is within a working dock.
The whole downstairs of The Great Escape has been designed with accessibility in mind, and as such is accessible to wheelchairs, including a disabled toilet.
