The ultimate gaming social is here and we're delighted to be sponsoring this event!


Important update from the organisers of this event

Due to the rising Covid cases in Birmingham, and throughout the country, we have been monitoring the situation very closely the last few weeks and have kept in constant touch with the government.  We have made the hard decision to postpone this event until later in the year. We're negotiating a new date - for November - with the venue and will update you all when our new date is finalized. Thanks again for your continued support
- Format GG Team
