I've booked my tickets :mrgreen:

Taking the family on Saturday, then back on my own on Sunday.

Might drive over, so if anyone from Sheffield wants a lift on Sunday I'll have some spare seats.

Hi Vinny. Walter unfortunately could not raise the funds to make the trip viable and had to cancel. He still hopes to attend a future show, so hopefully we can work with him to make it happen next year.

It's a shame ProjectorGames aren't going to be there this time, as they were consistently my favourite part of the previous 2 Replays and Games Britannia, but as long as there's plenty of other simple pick-up-and-play multiplayer games I'll be happy :)

Hello all,

Are there any small events (like last year's quiz and gaming) happening on the Saturday evening?

Or does the venue close again around 6-7 pm and thats it for the night?

If there are any events are there any age restrictions to go to them (e.g 18+ if it is in a bar). I will be travelling with a relative who is under that age so just wondering what the options were.

Cheers,
