There are a couple of evening sessions. Friday 7pm till 11pm and Saturday 7pm till 11pm

The VIP ticket covers all the day and evening sessions. Only 150 available. There are 40 left. If they're not sold out, the remaining evening slots will be sold at £10 on the door.

Full times on the website.

Beer is £1 cheaper in the main room too :-)

No, I couldn't make it in the end.  Bank holiday commitments.

I heard it was a good event.  Will it be on the Bank Holiday weekend again?

Yes I went and really enjoyed it.
Disappointed there was not a ghost busters pin to play as looking to buy one.
Also you need more venders selling stuff and a few retro machines in the back room would be good.


Overall a good show.
Will be going next time.

Yes, I was wandering around all weekend, wearing a UKVAC T-shirt on Sunday just in case.

Dialed in was good from the new pins, Spectrum was 'interesting' on the older ones (always liked that, think it's been to most shows) - quite a few new pins from companies I'd never heard of, so future looking good!

was amazed how many pins have the colour DMD's in - their owners must have more disposable income than me! (besides, I seldom have time to look at the DMD when playing anyway)

oh, mini pac was interesting too - although I think I would wait for the Galaxian (never really liked pacman - nothing to shoot!)

Yes, looking at it being on the bank holiday next year. Think it works well for most people. Especially those helping out and have to travel long distance. Gives them a chance to get packed up on the Sunday and chill out with a couple of drinks before leaving on the Monday.

Steve, I had a few arcade machines in one of the smaller meeting rooms. It's a dedicated pinball event but just thought I'd bring a few of my bartops along too for something a little different. Out of respect, I don't want to turn it into a retro event and tread on others toes that operate in the area. I also approached a few pinball vendors but could only secure the one.

You should have introduced yourselves.

Thanks for the feedback.
