Brilliant, most likely would have ended up there at some point anyway, will be a good focal point to be sure to bump into some folks from here, a very worthy cause will benefit & it's central so it's near pubs& clubs&eateries&karaoke bars!!!

Win win win win! :D

Don't forget to bring some change, we have a quiz and of course I'm there so there will be a raffle!

We already have BIG prize pledges from Sony, Madcatz, Namco-Bandi, Insert Coin and others, with a few big names on the maybe list, we also have a couple of cracking Retro based prizes that should have you drooling, keep checking for updates!
This is going to be AWESOME and the tickets are going pretty quick!
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...

At the risk of me moaning again, if the event closes at 7pm, and the after show opens at 7pm, how are we supposed to shower,change,eat and travel to the other side of manchester in approximately 0 minutes?
