Southampton Game Fest Returns May 22nd
The Southampton Game Fest is set for a return after a successful 2015.
Last year saw over 300 attendees and 16 exhibitors bask in a glut of games and related culture from across the generations. 75% of the profits raised from the event was donated to UK charity Special Effect.
This year’s event is set to be bigger than ever, increasing the numbers to 1700 people and 100 exhibitors. Yet again, the profits will be donated to charity with the chosen cause being Southampton Hospital Children’s ward.
Patrick Day-Childs, Founder of the Southampton Game Fest said:
“The events ran by the Hampshire Gaming Hub are great because they range from all different sizes and work for all different charities. Whether we are running a small tournament or larger scale event, like the Southampton Game Fest we always manage to find a great balance of gamers.
Even our tournaments have space for casual gamers, and the Southampton Game Fest will again have everything from indie games to previews to tournaments for all levels.”
This year’s event will take place on May 22, at the 02 Guildhall Southampton.
