Everyone is welcome to exhibit at the gaming market – from established online stores to individuals selling off their duplicate games. Tables cost just £80 and can be booked by contacting us to request a booking form.

You are welcome to arrive at any time before your allocated ticket times (11:00 for advance tickets, 12:00 for second door or 13:00 for general entry), however we ask that you do not arrive too far in advance.

Yes. Doors will open at 11:00 for people who have bought advance tickets online. Second door entry will commence at 12:00 giving advance entry attendees a full hour before everyone else. General entry will commence at 13:00

Our priority at opening will be to get everyone through the doors as quickly as possible and this will include ‘pre-processing’ of those who already have tickets. This will be done by scanning tickets prior to opening.

At peak times there may be a queuing system for second door and general entry as we will operate and one-in-one out system once we reach our capacity.

Advance entry tickets cost £6.00 plus booking fee. Second door (12:00) tickets cost £4.00 plus booking fee. They are all available on the tickets page.

General entry takes place from 13:00 and tickets cost £4.00 plus booking fee. These can be purchased on the door as well as on the tickets page.

To prevent overcrowding we will be introducing a one-in-one-out system during busy times with priority given to pre-booked tickets.

Tickets are on sale now! 

On the door entry will be from 13:00. The entry price will be £4.00 per adult.

There are several pay and display car parks within walking distance of the arena.

Yes, a carer/PA will be admitted free of charge with a paying disabled attendee – this only applies to on-the-door entry.

Under 16s do not need to pay to enter on the door when accompanied by a full paying adult after 13:00. 

We are unable to offer refunds for advance entry tickets, but you are welcome to give them to a friend or family member.
Photography and video is permitted, however we ask that you do not bring large cameras and equipment that will cause a trip hazard or disrupt others enjoyment of the show.
