Retro Computer Museum–May 2011

If you’re into video games you should really think about getting tickets for the Retro Computer Museum Weekend in Coalville just outside of Leicester.

It’s on the 7th & 8th of May and I can highly recommend it.

Last year when it was a single day event Richard Tubb and I went and had a great day.

We’ll both be going on the 7th this year (it’s my wedding anniversary that weekend – going both days would probably be pushing it Smile) and it’d well worth the trip.

It’s at the village hall in Coalville which is a great venue for something like this as it’s not a huge exhibition hall so everyone chats to each other.

One of the highlights last time around was the Bomberman tournament they projected onto the wall, even though I was terrible at it. The winner picked up special edition golden Game Cube. I’m hoping the tournament this time around is something I might stand a chance of winning – though unless it’s Street Fighter 2 this is unlikely Winking smile

It’s £6.00 if you book the tickets in advance and £7.50 on the day, though I can see the tickets running out so get in there quickly!
