If you’re a gamer you’ll want to get yourself down to the massive retro gaming market that’s hitting town next month.
Retro video game collectors, board game fanatics and general gaming fans will get the chance to find hidden gems at the Manchester Gaming Market.
The market is returning to the city in a new venue (with even more exhibitors) and you’ll be able to look through hundreds of tables of iconic memorabilia.
Whether it’s a nostalgia visit with friends or family, or you want to get your hands on some rare retro games, the market will have it all.
Items on offer will range from classic video games, consoles and import games, to board games, game-inspired clothing, magazines, retro toys and custom-made artwork.
The Manchester Gaming Market is managed by Replay Events, and follows on from the earlier success of PLAY Expo, which was held in May and saw thousands of people turn out to the North’s biggest video games event.
Andy Brown, Managing Director for Reply Events, said:
If you’ve yet to visit a Gaming Market, imagine a massive venue filled hundreds of tables of video games, tabletop games and merchandise for sale along with thousands of fellow gamers and collectors eager to find a bargain or that must-have item. Gaming Nirvana!
