RetroActive and Barcade are on board and we'd be well up for bringing a host of retro and rare import systems to the event!

sounds like a great idea for an event it'd be great to get all the different comunities together at one event!

Sounds great. Please make it easy to get tickets

The last Sheffield event you had to PM someone, then send a coded message to someone in the South Pole, who would then by telegram contact someone else who then gave you a paypal address to pay for the ticket on ! Very OTT!

Yeah, yeah, had enough abuse over that! :wink: This will be completely different. Again, though nothing confirmed, have to see if I can book the event first, will know next week. Love and hugs. Shaun.
Oh, and this would only be partly my event, lots of other contributors as mentioned above. Hope to have more info soon.

There are too many shows up north now.

Another show in the south dies and is replaced by yet another northern show. I would love to come to this but the cost of travelling that far added to hotels, food and drinks means it will be a no right now.

Video Game Carnival are pleased to be involved with this event. If you saw us at play you'll know what kind of thing to expect: Laser Pong, Fruitcade, 8 Bit Blocks etc. We should have some new quirky things for you to play on by then as well. Looking forward to it :)
