The London Games Festival 2012 will run between September 27th and October 28th 2012. The Festival will feature a diverse range of events from massive consumer exhibitions, game launches and parties, to careers’ fairs and educational summits, through to fringe events like video game pub quizzes and karaoke, each celebrating games culture.
London Games Festival director Kirsty Payne is once again overseeing the festival, though it will be curated by the industry as a whole – with everyone invited to contribute. The last London Games Festival in 2010 saw over 75,000 individuals attend 26 separate events.
“London Games Festival is a real focus for Ukie this year,” says event director Kirsty Payne. “We’re looking to unite the whole industry in a month-long celebration of games and gaming culture, and expect this to be the biggest LGF to date.”
The month-long festival will be the busiest ever, with Ukie events sitting alongside those organised by other associations, publishers, developers, games retailers and the gaming community as a whole.
