Personal Equipment:

  • In addition to your PC/laptop remember to bring your headphones (no speakers please), input devices, a mouse pad, and all charging cables.
  • You may bring your own chair if you’d like but you will need to carry it up stairs to the gaming hall.
  • We will provide network and power cables. Please bring cables or adapters for any devices that do not use a standard 'kettle lead' connector.
  • Communal showers are available - if you plan on using them you will need to bring a towel.
  • If you are sleeping at the event please remember a pillow and sleeping bag. Space is limited so if you’d like to bring an airbed it must be a single size.


  • We will be hosting LAN wide games of Team Fortress 2 (which can now host the whole LAN in one server) and PUBG: Battlegrounds. Both games are free on Steam and we’d suggest getting them installed ahead of time.
  • PROTIP: PUBG requires a short (5 minutes) tutorial to be completed before you can play, so try to do this before the event.

Ticket Availability:

  • There are still tickets available. If you know someone who would enjoy the event, invite them to join us!

We are looking forward to an exciting and fun-filled weekend. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us by replying to this email or via our Discord server.

See you at the event!
