The GameCity festival makes October half-term brilliant.

The new National Videogame Arcade brings you brilliant all year round.

There’s a rich programme of events for everyone at the NVA.
Full details and booking are opening very soon, but to get you started here’s a taster of our regular programme…



GameCityNights is an appointment event for videogame culture, having welcomed guests from around the globe since it launched in 2010.
Once a month, you’re invited to join us for a night of tournaments, prizes, fun, music and VERY special guests from the world of videogames. And that’s not all… if you’re making a game then bring it along to show the crowd!
It’s a great opportunity to play new games.
It’s a variety show.
It’s the last Thursday of every month.

It’s videogames’ night out.


Night at the Arcade

Once the daytime visitors have left, everything changes.
Night at the Arcade is the full National Videogame Arcade experience, with added after-dark magic.



Sometimes, you just want to play some videogames. These regular NVA evenings invite you to come along to play, hang out with other GameCitizens and enjoy our library of games.
