[Event] Retro Computer Museum's Retro Gaming Easter Bank Holiday (Leicester, March 29th - April 1st)

Event-Retro-Computer-Museums-Retro-Gaming-Easter-Bank-Holiday-Leicester-March-29th-April-1stWith the long Easter Bank holiday fast approaching, why not spend it with a collection of retro gamers and retro computers all under one roof? The famous Retro Computer Museum based in Leicester is hosting a Retro Gaming event with a large selection of classic systems on offer.

If you're not familiar with the Retro Computer Museum, it's a charity run mission with the aim of preserving, displaying and providing access to computer and console systems from the 1960's onwards. Over the last few years the Retro Computer Museum has held many events to gather classic gamers from around the country, with this Easter Bank holiday one being their latest.

As the event is based in Snibston Discovery Museum, there will plenty more for gamer's families to do whilst we all get our much needed helping of nostalgia. The admission price will also include entrance to all the standard Snibston Discovery Museum exhibits too.
