What is Revival?
Over the weekend of the 18th and 19th May 2013 we will be launching our first Retro Expo event that we have called Revival. The event will be annual and will be 100% retro - celebrating gaming and nostalgia throughout the 70's, 80's and 90's. We have some great partners in The Retro Computer Museum, The Centre for Computing History and Attic Bug and together we plan to put on the largest retro only event in the UK.
What will be at the event?
There will be over 60 arcade machines, pinball tables and over 130 retro systems for visitors to play on for free once inside the venue. We will also have many traders that will cater for all your retro gaming needs.
Who is on the guest list?
We have many guests from the retro gaming world coming along for the weekend - ex-Ocean employees including Bob Wakelin, Simon Butler and Bill Harbison, Archer Maclean, The Oliver Twins, The Newsfield gang (Roger Kean, Oliver Frey, Robin Hogg and Paul Rand) and many more providing talks throughout the weekend and happy to sign memorabillia you may have.

Mike Montgomery will be joining us at Revival and will be signing prints of the art from some his symbolic Bitmap Brother's games as well as participating in a Q/A session. There will be A2 and A3 signed prints for sale, both framed and unframed. We will also have mugs with printed imagery from the Bitmap games.
The Bitmap Brothers are recognised as one of the best publishers of games that the UK has ever produced with games like Xenon, Z, Gods and Chaos Engine under their belt. Look out for some Xenon high score compeitions at Revival, and who knows, you may play Mike in the final!
