We will be doing a variety of charity fundraising activities at the event - as mentioned already we will have Mohicankid's Raffle and Lucky Dip, so if you have any suitable donations for prizes please bring them along... Prizes already confirmed include a Play Expo goodie bag (including 2 tickets to the event), an Atari 2600 with games and a variety of PS3, XBOX and PSP games.

We will also have Anna's Charity Sausage Roll Sale - I'm sure last year's competitiors remember her great sausage rolls, and this year they will be sold for a charity donation of £1 (or more if you think they are worth it). The three varieties available will be Pork and Apple, Walnut and Stilton (and pork!) and the brand new All Day Breakfast variety which I can confirm is awesome! She's also looking at doing a vegetarian variety too, to be confirmed.

All proceeds from the fundraising efforts will be split between SpecialEffect and the Sophie Lancaster Foundation...

So nobody's up for it? I've found somewhere about a fifteen minute walk from the place, it's work out at £28 each for the night...

Time Pilot will always make me happy. Is the Mega Drive still going to be used, with Sonic Spinball?
