[Event] Southampton Game Fest 2016 - Sunday 22nd May, Grand Harbour Hotel


Southampton Game Fest 2016 is the only dedicated gaming event in Hampshire, UK and is being held in aid of the Southampton Hospital Charity. The first SGF was held in 2015 and while it was a fairly small event, it managed to raise a decent amount of money for gaming charity Special Effect. 2016's Game Fest will be more of the same, but on a much grander scale and will be held at the impressive Grand Harbour Hotel located close to the maritime city's famous docks.

RetroCollect will be in attendence at Southampton Game Fest 2016 bringing a touch of nostalgia to procedings, and we will have a whole host of retro systems for event goers to sample. From Sega Megadrives and Super Nintendos to Neo Geos and Sony PlayStations, there'll be something for eveyone. As well as the retro games, Southampton Game Fest 2016 will have other attractions such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Samsung VR demonstration units for you to try out, a cosplay masquerade, various tournaments throughout the day, a pixel art workshop and a ton of current gen indie and mainstream games to play.

The event takes place on Sunday 22nd May from 10am until 5pm and will be hosted at the Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton, UK. Tickets cost just £6.00 for general entry, and free parking is available. For more information or to buy tickets and support this charity event, follow the link below.
