By using our arena, central atrium area (over 400m²) and our main entrance with another 400m², you can host the gaming event of the year.

Host your own gaming tournament!

A little bit of competition will add some excitement to your event and give attendees a finale that they will want to stick around for. Depending on the size of your event, you can have more than one game for the tournament and target some of your fans’ favourite games. Having two or three different games will make your guests more likely to participate as you can cater for different interests and preferences.

Video Game Demos Kettering

The creator of a game will always be the most passionate about their game so take the opportunity to invite them (or a select few creators if you can’t decide) to showcase their game(s) and gain some new fans. Depending on how you want to structure your event, you can set this up as a theatre room or go for a classroom or dining set up if you will be evolving it into a space for people to try the game with their friends.

Exhibitor Gaming Space

We can set up an area for you or your exhibitors to go through a Q&A with the fans and can offer this in a separate area to the rest of the event, just to make sure that there isn’t lots of noise from elsewhere. The Lighthouse Theatre is perfect for Q&A’s sessions and can seat up to 550 gamers.
