A new one-day event at AFC Bridgnorth’s Meadow Function Rooms will see computer gamers go head to head with games old and new. Bridgnorth Gaming Festival aims to celebrate gaming culture from retro gaming right up to modern consoles, also taking in board and card games.

Organiser Kevin Adams says, “We’d love to hear from gamers about what tournaments they’d they like to play on the day and how they can get involved.

“We have E:Kit coming along with retro gaming rigs, Raspberry Pi Scratch and Lego tech, PC build workshop; Lucy from The Bridge with console game tournaments, Armiche with board gaming, and Mario Karts and Super Smash Bros on the big screen among many others. Thanks to Deb and all at AFC Bridgnorth for helping us out with a fantastic venue for our first event, including providing a range of food and drink on the day.”
