Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

The Arcade Experience 3 - 5th October 2019

The Arcade Experience 3 - 5th October 2019
Sorry, Out of Stock

Description :


Join us for another unforgettable evening of awesome arcade action! This will be a unique chance to experience and enjoy the essence of the classic arcade, with over 20 of the best retro arcade machines from the 80s and 90s setup on free-play, retro tunes blaring, a fully licensed bar courtesy of Lord Conrad's Brewery to keep your button-mashing fury fuelled! Whatever happens, be sure to bring your A-game to the high-score competition!

All our usual gaming displays will be on for you to play but expect to find an arcade conversion or two. Join us for a great night out and help support the work of the Centre!  


Spaces for this unique gaming event are limited, so booking is required to ensure your place, although if you're lucky you *may* get in on the night. (tickets on the door will be £2 extra) 


Please feel free on the night to order any food you want for delivery to the museum. We can recommend using Deliveroo!

All we kindly ask is that you use the tables provided in the foyer to eat and please use the napkins and handwash provided to keep things (and yourselves!) nice and tidy. Please do not eat food whilst playing games.


Due to the fact that we have a licensed bar and the adult nature of some games this is an over 18s event.

Remember - All proceeds go to support our Computing Museum!
