There's also the Geek expo - in Margate, Kent, which is happening in February, I believe.

http://gameexpoeastkent.co.uk/

It sounds like it could be an event on a similar scale to the successful Replay Expo events - but based in the south, rather than the north :)

I am hoping that I'll be there in person with the Jagfest-UK team (as at 2011's Replay Expo) but this is not confirmed yet.
There is a likelihood that it may be possible at this late stage though, as the organiser of the earlier Jagfest-UK events is based in Rochester/Strood area in Kent.

I'm hoping that Gaztee (a member of this forum) will know more about this than I do ..... :)

Cheers,

Rich

I can confirm that GEEK2012 is a large scale (5 day) fringe that Replay Events are organising.

We are also organising Games Britannia:Replayed which is the public facing part of Games Britannia festival. The days of this show are 7/8 July 2012.

http://www.gamesbritannia.com/replayed/

Other shows are in the pipeline but we're not in a position to announce these yet. If this thread is going to be stickied I can update it when we get more news on each show...

There's the Atari Connexion near to Meaux, France.  It's the weekend after the Easter Weekend.

EuroCon is on in Karlsruhe this year sometime in September I think - will find out correct dates and update.

eJagfest is usually late November-ish/early December.

VCFE (Munich) is on the last weekend in April.

Retroactive 2012 - April - @Leicester

I've not heard that announced anywhere, but if true it is overcrowding April/May with events.

Generally if an important event is coming up it will be listed at:
http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=17231

Another April Event is:
South Coast Slam III: Return of the Slam
14th-15th of April 2012 on the South Coast at Worthing, West Sussex
http://www.ukvac.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=329899

Mostly pinball, but they had 30 nice arcade cabs last year.

One that Mat (Corne) was discussing at the Homebrew Weekend at the Lass ... and it's announced already :)

HISCORE 2012: Arcade Tournament 2-3 June at The Lass O' Gowrie in Manchester.

Arcade game competition and pints of Betty's Best - a win/win combination :)

Not forgetting
Computer Club
Last Tuesday and second Fridays The Lass o Gowrie

http://www.videolympics.co.uk/
Saturday 4th-Sunday 5th August 2012

Theres a few other games based things planned at The Lass that you guys might need to keep your eyes open for.
(Why I needed some dates of upcoming RCM open days)
Not allowed to say anything aside from "They will be good"
Just keep your Sundays in Summer free


Megabyte Night of video games music, chip tunes and remixes
Third Fridays at the Retro bar
http://megabyteclub.co.uk/
Not so much about gaming, more about partying

There is one more, but meh. Like the staff, the venue, but not most the people that go. (Pure machine code)
