REVIVAL is the UK's best dedicated retro gaming convention.
Working in collaboration with Craig Turner fom Turnarcades Custom Arcade Machines
, REVIVAL is an event focusing not just on retro gaming, but on the retro culture that was inspired by and shared history with our earliest gaming roots.
REVIVAL aims to bring as many true retro gamers together as possible in one place for the classic gaming experience we all really want to share, whilst retaining a very personal, social event feel.
REVIVAL: The Rivals 2017 returns to Banks's Stadium in Walsall on May 20-21, 2017 with even more of the same great revival retro events (RRE) flavour gamers have come to enjoy over the last four years, including:
