Into retro games and gaming memorabilia? This month sees the return of the Video Game Market in Doncaster, followed by the London Gaming Market in Russell Square, London in April.
Returning for its fourth year, the Video Game Market is the UK’s largest market-style event, presenting visitors with over 180 tables heaving with collectibles, retro-gaming and much more besides, from more than 70 independent retailers.
Taking place on February 25th at the Doncaster Dome Leisure Centre, the event is expecting over 3000 enthusiasts. Entry is capped at just £2 with under 16’s free!
Meanwhile, London gamers have their own event to flock to, with the London Gaming Market returning for its third year on April 2nd at the Royal National Hotel, Russell Square. Set for its biggest show yet, over 2000 visitors are expect to descend on the nation’s capital. Entry is also just £2 with Under 16’s free.
Says Andy Brown, Director for organisers Replay Events. “Our gaming markets continue to prove enormously popular with gamers of all ages and we’re delighted to be returning for our third and fourth year with these two key events.”
He continues: “Gaming and collecting is a great way to socialise, and our shows have an infectious community feel that simply can’t be replicated in any other environment. Unlike buying online, the Gaming Markets offer the idea opportunity to get hands on with the rare, weird and wonderful and we’re expecting record attendance figures as news spreads amongst the passionate collecting community.”
