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 ) 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
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!
