If you live in the Kent area and you love your games then the GEEK Gaming Festival next month should be right on your radar.

For the 2nd year it will be returning to Kent at Dreamland Margate in half-term, February 16th – 18th. 

GEEK will be transforming Dreamland with a space theme as it celebrates the 40th anniversary of the original Space Invaders. The festival will also commemorate the 10th anniversary of the release of Super Smash Brothers Brawl on the Nintendo Wii with a grand franchise tournament, a day dedicated to Minecraft will see a cave for build-battles and the Jedi Fight Academy will show budding Jedi’s light saber skills and much more – taught by actor Andrew Lawden, who starred in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Mena

There will be a behind-the-scenes look at Gaming also, whilst the popular cosplay masquerade as well as tournaments for games sch as Street Fighter V, Pro Evolution Soccer 2018, Halo 4 and many more.  Rebecca Ellis, Senior Creative Producer at Dreamland Margate, said:

GEEK is beyond a festival of games; it reveals all of the facets of games making and playing in a social environment. Dreamland is a natural home for a festival of play and games, people have been coming to the park for years in this way.

Kate Kneale, Co-Founder of GEEK, also added:

This will officially be GEEK’s sixth year and eleventh event. The team is really excited about the content we have lined up for the 2018 edition. Play and games are powerful forces for good. GEEK’s objective is to encourage people to come along and have fun and to explore the creative aspects of gaming. This year promises to have more going on than ever before and we can’t wait for people to come and experience it. So come along to meet, make and play at GEEK!
