Live Events go live!

10 January, 2020

With a range of shows designed to appeal to our UK Games Expo audience, you can see comedy, really clever things and some pretty daft ones as well as sing-a-longs, daring dos and daring don'ts, all with audience participation as well as a gang of comedians and performers to entertain.

We are hosting events in three different locations this year:

The Toute Suite at the NEC for the more Family orientated shows, The Pavilion at the Hilton Hotel and The Arden Room at the Hilton for some of our new shows this year.

There will be live performances of....

The Dark Room:

The Dark Room is the world’s only live-action text adventure game! From a sell out series of shows at the Edinburgh Fringe there will be 3 performances of The Dark Room plus a slightly earlier late edition of The Dark Room till you die. Its earlier start time is specifically to sallow our Expo Volunteers to get to bed at a reasonable time!
