Retro gaming convetion in northeast England, June 20-21 2015
Apparently there's a retro gaming convention called Back to the NERG (north-east retro gaming), which will be held in June in Gateshead, just south of Newcastle in the UK. It's been going for a couple of years, but as I only moved here recently, this is the first I've heard about it. I'm not in any way affiliated, just thought it might be of interest to some of ye here. They promise pinball tables, arcade cabinets and "computer consoles".
I can't find an official site that isn't Facebook, but they're on Twitter @nergofficial and on a pinball-focused site here.
If anyone decides to come and wants to meet for a coffee, feel free to get in touch.
Edit: Gah, apologies for the typo in the thread title.

Upsides - lots of pinball machines, if pinball is your thing its worth a look. The console collection was pretty impressive, lots of rare consoles and the queues to try them out were quite short. Also if you're into merchandise, and collecting, there's quite a lot on sale.
It also had to worst cosplay competition I've ever seen (it was won by some guy in what looked like a green gimp suit, our best guess was Abe from Abe's Odyssey).
