Retrofest: Retro Gaming at R-CADE

About Retrofest: Retro Gaming at R-CADE

It's time for a throwback!

On a normal day at R-CADE, you can play from our selection of over 1100 games, over 16 original consoles dating back to the 70's, on full colour CRT TV's. We dont do emulation!

But wait, there's more! For one day only we will be dusting off our most retro of consoles. We will have such machines as Amstrad CPC464, Spectrum ZX+2 128k, Amiga A500 and Commodore 64 set up for you to play, complete with original cassettes, floppy discs and some Basic coding worksheets for you to try out.

Your ticket will allow you to play all of our consoles in operation on the day, plus a number of nostalgic handheld games that will ignite your childhood memories!

This event is suitable for gamers age 8 and up. Your ticket will give you a one hour pass to play as many games as you like.

Please note, our cafe area and free boardgame section will not be available on this day as we will be using this space to set up our extra consoles. Your ticket will give you a specific one hour window to play, if you arrive late you must still leave when the hour timeslot is up.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Retrofest: Retro Gaming at R-CADE are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
