The cosy city of Sheffield in Britain holds host to Games Britannia Live! An extension to the multi-award winning video game education festival running over the weekend of 28-29 June 2014. Where intrepid games developers can showcase their latest work to an expected audience of up to twenty thousand visitors.
The Winter Gardens, Tudor Square and Millennium Galleries are all at the heart of Sheffield’s cultural centre and will be the venue for these events. The Winter Garden is the largest temperate glasshouse in Europe and houses a superb display of more than 2,500 exotic plants from around the globe.
“Game Republic has always been an enthusiastic supporter of the Games Britannia festival,” said Jamie Sefton, Managing Director of the Yorkshire and the North of England games network Game Republic. “Now in addition to the educational strand, Games Britannia Live! presents a fantastic opportunity for the region’s talented games developers to showcase their work to the public.”
Andy Payne, Chair of industry trade body Ukie and CEO of Mastertronic said, “It is fabulous to see Games Britannia Live! going from strength to strength and proving that there is both a supply and demand for games and technology from all over the country and an event that is crucially outside of London. This event is open to all and will give game makers an unrivalled and invaluable opportunity to put their creations in front of a huge audience”.
