So it's official. We knew for a short while but didn't have the final date but now it's all confirmed. Play Expo is coming to London this year! Put the date in your diary 11th and 12th of August 2018!
So for the south of England and more importantly the capital, we now have a retro gaming event for us all to enjoy! Plus if you are travelling from other parts of the country, transport into London is easy enough and for international visitors too - so it should be a cosmopolitan affair.
Where is it at?
Printworks, Surrey Quays Road, London SE16 7PJ
So after being to various national Play Expo events what can we expect for London?
From the team at Replay Events expect the best and expect it BIG. This is a big venue but tickets will go fast for any London gaming event and this one is truly on our hit list for 2018!
Andy Brown, Managing Director of Replay Events said:
"We are super excited to be bringing PLAY Expo to the capital for the first time, the Printworks is the ideal venue for our iconic event. We all remember the games we have loved and treasured over the years. PLAY Expo allows you to revisit your favourites, introduce them to the next generation and discover something new for yourself."
What's on offer?
There will be hundreds of consoles, handhelds, computers, arcades, pinballs and PC's all running the very best in classic and modern gaming. But it's the classic area that's the draw for us and there will be plenty to choose from. Also special guests at the event from the world of gaming from the past to recount their memories making and producing games as well as talking about new projecrts. All very exciting. Guests for the event we will reveal closer to the show opening...
The event promises alot - and will be jam packed with everything you love about classic gaming and popular culture (films etc too!), so the show has something for everyone.
