Retro gamers and retro computer fans in the UK looking for one last fix before Santa calls have an important event to look forward to this year – the REVIVAL Winter Warmer 2015!
This new event, over the weekend 28-29 November, marks the long-awaited return of Britain’s best dedicated retrogaming event to the Midlands, and as the name suggests, is expected to be a precursor to the organisers’ return to full scale in 2016!
The Winter Warmer, although it will be on a smaller scale than the show we covered back in August last year, will still be packed with plenty of the usual REVIVAL flavour with, according to the organisers:
“…over sixty consoles and computers, multiplayer gaming, on-stage competitions, the best in retro-related traders, well-priced food and alcohol and best of all for this smaller event, we are still cramming over 45 arcade and pinball machines into the event space to ensure our unrivalled ‘arcade ambience’ atmosphere!”
The Winter Warmer will be at a new venue, Brookfields Leisure Centre, Wolverhampton, WV10 7LZ, and tickets are booking now: https://www.tickettailor.com/checkout/view-event/id/33301/chk/af20
Ever-enthusiastic REVIVAL head honcho Craig Turner of Turnarcade fame, goes on:
“The success of this show will determine what we bring to 2016, so be sure to come along if you’ve never been before or if you’re a show regular, squeeze in this one last date to see out 2015 and support the full-scale return of the UK’s best dedicated independent retro-gaming event! Tickets are on sale now and already half sold, so with just 6 weeks to go, grab yours NOW to avoid disappointment!”

Retro Computing News is aiming to cover the Winter Warmer on the Sunday, as our editor Stuart Williams is committed to attending a horror anthology book launch in nearby Walsall on the Saturday, because he has a story in it! Hope to see you there!
