The National Videogame Arcade brings you brilliant all year round.

There’s a rich programme of events for everyone at the NVA.
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.


Saturday Social

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


Members’ Club

It’s members’ night at the NVA!
Gain entry to the specially reserved Members Only area, with full access to our Game Library. As a member you are free to play all of our available titles from our game library  – the hard part is choosing!
We want the NVA to be the home of videogames – as a member you can help us shape the future of The National Videogame Arcade. Members’ Club social events invite you to contribute to the discussion, as well as use the fully-licensed Toast Bar, meet other members and perhaps play some games.
