When we first got there it had been open for about an hour already and there were still queues to get in, and to be honest throughout the day I kept seeing there was a queue too, even when we were leaving!
There was a prize draw too to win a PS4 (I did not win… so I’m saving up for one) and it was nice to have this little added excitement for the day.
A dedicated games room was in the first room to the right (the venue itself wasn’t the biggest but they definitely made use of all the space) and this had a few playable retro games as well as a space for Get Well Gamers (which is an awesome charity you should absolutely check out).
The stalls though… this place was basically a game merchandise collector’s paradise!
Our haul was pretty cool, I so nearly missed that guar though! Very grateful to Alex for finding Jurassic Park Operation Genesis for me too – it was one of my all-time favourites when I was younger! After we went to a comic fair too and he found me a set of Jurassic Park comics. 😍
So yeah, it was a lot of fun and we got some awesome pick-ups! Looking forward to the next Retro Events fair too – Collectorabilia in April, though I think next time I’ll save up beforehand to prepare…
