About the London Games Festival
The London Games Festival is a ten-day event celebrating the video game industry at a variety of venues around the capital. Whether you’re a hardcore gamer or whether the last video game you played was PacMan, you’re bound to find lots to excite you. You’ll be able to test out over 300 of the latest games on the market, participate in tournaments, attend workshops and seminars about every aspect of gaming and even watch interactive cinematic movies. And if that’s not enough for you, there are after parties where you can play some of the best independent games to the soundtrack of a DJ and live band!
The ten-day festival features a range of events at a variety of venues across London. The festival opens with pre-release games, seminars & gaming industry career advice at EGX Rezzed at Tobacco Dock in East London, easily accessible from any of Tower Hill, Shadwell or Canada Water tube stations. The event is open from 10am to 6pm, with day tickets costing £15 and a three-day Super Pass available for £37.50. As events are regularly added to the festival schedule, the best way to stay up to date with the announcements is to keep tabs on the official website here.
One of the highlights of the London Games Festival is ‘Now Play This: A Weekend of Games and Play’, a three-day event in the beautiful surroundings of Somerset House in central London. Featuring everything from modern-day parlour games to 3D chess and from team games to panel discussions with the game creators, come and let your inner child run wild.
