Retro video game night

Get your fingers tapping for some retro gaming fun

If you look back fondly on weekends glued to your SNES or SEGA Megadrive as a kid, take a trip down memory lane at the Centre for Computing History, which welcomes back its popular Retro Video Game Night this month. The theme this time around is Forgotten Gaming Mascots, which will see long-lost favourites like Alex Kidd, Monty the Mole and James Pond getting dusted down and thrust into the pixelated limelight for a night of joystick joy.

There’ll be vintage consoles and arcade games galore to play around on, plus a bar from Lord Conrad’s brewery and some street food on offer for when you need a refuel and power-up. The event takes place on 2 March, 7pm-12am. Tickets are £10.
