GameCity Adventures is a free, outdoor pop-up Adventure Trail happening 23-24 October in Sheffield City Centre.
On Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th October, BGI is hosting a range of family-friendly games and activities in museums, public spaces, cafes and independent retailers across the City, including the BGI’s National Videogame Museum. The festival is an accessible experience for visitors to move through the City Centre discovering new experiences to play in different venues and locations. Players will collect a ‘play pack’ from a mix of outdoor central locations and indoor venues, which encourages them to visit and search specific areas and then play a variety of activities.
There will be over a dozen individual game sites, each with a different activity ranging from accessible analogue games, collection of clues to physical games. Some activities are self-led while others will be facilitated by volunteers or National Videogame Museum crew. Each play/visit earns a stamp which will be redeemable at the end for goods or discounts at the Museum and our partner venues.
In order to take part in the festival, players are asked to sign up on Eventbrite and access details on how to get started with the festival, including where they can pick up their free game map and play pack during the weekend.
This event is supported by the Sheffield City Council as a part of the Economy Recovery Fund.
