Our Friends…


The GameCity festival is created in partnership with Nottingham Trent University. Nottingham Trent University is at the forefront of pioneering research into interactive technologies and their impact on society. From stroke rehabilitation through remote controlled devices to games designed to change attitudes to social problems – our research groups are advancing games culture in the fields of education, health, disabilities, security, heritage and sports.

Nottingham Trent University also offers a wide range of industry-focused degrees at undergraduate, postgraduate and research levels in associated creative industries such as computing, media and multimedia, product design, art and design and creative writing.
Students at the University are able to engage with the GameCity festival regularly, with opportunities to curate events, undertake project work relevant to their course (eg. Journalism, marketing, photography, media practices), showcase their talents as developers, animators or creators – or just go along and enjoy the festival as part of their university experience.


Confetti has a long-standing relationship with GameCity. Confetti students are hugely involved in activities throughout the event – from providing technical support to getting involved in games and concept design.

Our partnership with Confetti is important to us – One of the key elements is allowing new talent the opportunity to show and tell their work and the brilliant Confetti students always provide a valuable contribution.
