REVIVAL is back on 15-16th June with REVIVAL: Gaming Legends 2019! The UK's biggest and best dedicated retrogaming convention returns to Banks's Stadium in Walsall with even more of the same great RRE flavour gamers have come to enjoy over the last 7 years!


- Over 150 playable retro consoles and computers
- Over 100 FREE PLAY classic arcade and pinball machines
- Developer legends meet-and-greet with Fusion Retro Books
- The 'Arcade Legends' pro and casual arcade tournaments
- More stage and show floor competitions with great prizes
- Bigger indie gaming area and new dedicated zones
- Large screen multiplayer experiences and system link-ups
- An even larger selection of traders offering various retro collectables
- Live special guest talks and interactive workshops
- Reasonably priced, fully licensed bar and gamer's snack bar serving hot and cold food
- Accessible venue near M6 J9, with FREE Saturday and reasonable Sunday parking
- Choice of nearby hotels with direct rail and bus links to the venue
- Discounted family, group and concessional tickets and in-event purchases with the REVIVAL Membership Card

As well as all the best retro gaming attractions, REVIVAL: Gaming Legends will be focusing on the 2 gaming groups that have made gaming the entertainment platform it is today. Get some face time with 'industry legends' in the talks, indie and specialist development zones as well as Fusion Retro Books' developer meet and greet zone where you'll get chance to discuss their work face-to-face with signing opportunities! We are also celebrating the 'gaming legends' of the home and the arcade whose skills and determination pushed the limits of the games that built the industry to drive it forward, with the first dedicated 'Arcade Legends' tournament, more on-stage and floor tournaments and specialised high score competitions!

2019 will be our best year yet with the input of our committed team and many gaming communities, so make sure you grab your tickets early, grab your friends and come and experience the unmatched atmosphere and perfect retrogaming weekend that is REVIVAL: Gaming Legends 2019!

As most of you know this event is heavily supported by Arcade Club and a massive number of collectors at UKVAC so you can expect to see more diversity and exclusives from private individuals there, but we always need more help! If you want to showcase one of your machines or are able to provide a few to enjoy over the weekend for each of our dedicated zones then please do drop me a message or jump on Rog Cantor's thread here on the forum to let us know what you can do. Hope to see lots of you there again and taking part in the arcade tourneys going on!

I haven't been to one of these but am hoping to attend this one. Regarding the traders, are there good selections of stuff at decent prices, things such as everdrives, modded consoles etc? 

I fancy getting into a bit of collecting of consoles again and it is a long journey from near Dover so if anyone can give me a good idea of what to expect it would be appreciated!
Selling up and movin' on...

I guess it'll always be the traders decision on where to price stuff, but I've certainly had some killer deals on a few choice bits and pieces.
I do tend to go with the express intention to purchase nothing, and walk away with "ahem.. well I had to, really" kinda purchases. Wink

Had a great time last year
Planning on bringing a cab but depends what i have running near the time and if i can get the days off for it

There are loads of traders some bargains to be had but if you are going looking for rare stuff that is worth high prices it will be priced high the traders all know exactly what they have
Worth visiting though

Usually no, but you never know if someone wants to offload some of their collection.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my sanity the most.

Some got spamming? Ah well nothing new lol.

Thanks for the comments peeps and as always we will try to make it the best we can! As many of you know it gets more expensive to hold and takes more time to organise every year, but we do it all for the true enthusiasts and really appreciate the collective support of fellow Vaccers.

On the arcade front we will be at around 80 cabs again this year, with half of those coming courtesy of Arcade Club so all your favourites will of course be there. We get the extra variety though through our private collectors with cabs coming from myself, Mike, Rog, Martin, Alex, Dave, Rich and many many more. We should be getting a good smattering of candies, original machines like Sky Skipper, beautiful resto’s like Enduro Racer, black and white oldies like Fire Truck and oddities like the Dino King conversions. If we can work out the fine details hopefully you will be all want to have a crack at the arcade tournament too!

There’s more sellers than ever before and there’ll be everything from games and consoles to collectibles and cables available from some of the very best traders out there. Everdrives aren’t common fayre at events because it can upset some traders but some may carry them, and a couple are certainly bringing flash solutions for some systems. Arcades for sake tend to be a more private thing between collectors and I’m certainly offloading some of my no longer needed cabs though nothing highly collectible. One good thing for Neo Geo fans though is the guys who’ve made the new game Xeno Crisis will be there showing that off!

It’s always a great social event guys and we may be taking a break next year so it’s a good idea to get yourself to this one even if you’re going to others around then. It’s where all the real retro heads go so you won’t be seeing foam swords, Minecraft and Fortnite polluting your visit.

Fingers crossed but looking pretty bleak - I've been on a drought of 6 years now since I made it to an event :(

I will be going and taking my Nintendo Space Fever cocktail. Can't make it on the Friday now because of the lack of and price of the local hotels though. So not quite sure how I get the game setup on the floor now. Last time I took it in on the Friday evening.
I'll be there Saturday and Sunday though.
