Over the weekend of the 18th and 19th May 2013 the Retro Computer Museum will be part of the first Retro Expo event that is called Revival. The event will be annual and will be 100% retro - celebrating gaming and nostalgia throughout the 70's, 80's and 90's. We have some great partners in The Retro Computer Museum, The Centre for Computing History and together we plan to put on the largest retro only event in the UK.
What will be at the event?
There will be over 60 arcade machines, pinball tables and over 130 retro systems for visitors to play on for free once inside the venue. We will also have many traders that will cater for all your retro gaming needs.
Who is on the guest list?
We have many guests from the retro gaming world coming along for the weekend - ex-Ocean employees including Bob Wakelin, Simon Butler and Bill Harbison, Archer Maclean, The Oliver Twins, The Newsfield gang (Roger Kean, Oliver Frey, Robin Hogg and Paul Rand) and many more providing talks throughout the weekend and happy to sign memorabillia you may have.
