REVIVAL is back this May 20/21st with REVIVAL: The Rivals 2017! The UK's best dedicated retrogaming convention returns to Banks's Stadium in Walsall with even more of the same great RRE flavour gamers have come to enjoy over the last 4 years, including:



- Over 50 classic FREE PLAY arcade machines
- Around 20 FREE PLAY pinball machines
- A great selection of the best retro collectible traders, headed up by Vintage Gamer
- A new larger presentation zone, with special guest talks and Q+A's hosted by Retro Asylum
- Over 200 consoles, computers and retrogaming attractions from popular to rare
- On-stage competitions, events and prizes courtesy of hosts The Retro Lords
- Discounted tickets and in-event purchases with the REVIVAL Membership Card!

In-keeping with our aims to bring fresh experiences to retrogaming, this year our focus is on 'The Rivals'. 2017 will feature:

- Special guest Dave 'The Games Animal' Perry (of TV's Gamesmaster and Games World fame) will be giving a guest talk and taking part in some of our on-stage activity
- Plenty of competitions, high score and speed runs to sort out the best from the rest
- More multiplayer experiences, including PC LAN link-ups, computer crossover play and even head-to-head portable play
- Classic system rivalries set up side-by-side to compare ports, libraries and specs and settle those old playground rivalries

2017 will be our best year yet with the input of our committed team and many gaming communities, so make sure you grab your tickets early, grab your friends and come and experience the unmatched atmosphere and perfect retrogaming weekend that is REVIVAL: The Rivals 2017!

VAC members have always supported REVIVAL events well in the past with an excellent turnout, podcast coverage and importantly, equipment and cabinet support. Rcantor and Chuckie Egg will once again be heading up support from machine pledges, and with some input from Smarty, will be bringing a van load up from the south, with Mike Lees coming down from the north with similar and me doing the rounds in the Midlands.

We run at zero profit and logistics budgets are tight, so we depend highly on collectors pledging cabinets and pins to share what they cherish with other enthusiasts, so we are once again asking if any VACcers would like to contribute, there will be free admission and a pint or two waiting for you when you get here ;) We look after your machines well at the show and transport them well too if you want us to collect them, just ask Al when we brought his pride and joy Sheriff machine, Space Launcher and Red Tent last year!

Tell us here if you'll be coming and drop any of us a line if you want to help out and we can co ordinate it from there. Hope to see you all here this May!

I went to this last year and it was great fun. The Bank's Stadium is a great venue and they have a fully licensed bar Beer

I don't think I'll be able to go this year though as the wife is expecting our first child in July and I suspect I will have to be at her beck and call by the end of May. Therefore, lots of pictures and videos of the event please Big smile.

Thanks for the fast replies guys! Good to hear plenty of you make the pilgrimage to the dusty Midlands ha ha. Yeah we've mixed it up in content a bit as we are trying to keep it fresh for regulars, we've made room for more traders and right now the arcade cab count is looking well tidy, with a good mix of playable silver age stuff, multiplayer and collectible classics to keep us collectors happy. The guests are starting to get confirmed and we've got some awesome ones (more on that soon ;)), plus we've got a little more room this time overall and will be having a bit more input from exhibitors outside our team again - Chris has already mentioned there will be some new awesomeness on the Vectrex front, there'll be some more competition and there'll hopefully be a lot more to see of the Spectrum Next!

Bensonrad, yes that is a membership card you have and if you have it, it's still valid. You get early entry (9am both days), 10% discount on things bought from 'partner traders' at the show, and if you order your ticket before 31st March you can get your ticket a bit cheaper. Definitely worth grabbing one if any of you don't have one yet!

Good to hear more of you coming guys. The crew went for beers in the hotel bar and a big curry on Saturday night last year, so be sure to join us over in the Park Inn bar if you want to come too!

Good men! More news to come, just took a few days off to get a load of exhibitors and traders sewn up. As always we've answered requests and this year drastically stepped up our trader count, with 15-20 traders coming, from retro t-shirts and clay models, local favourites, to the top rated event/online traders with the best consoles, games, imports and rarities.

We've started getting machine, pinball and vid machine confirmations now including some rarities and new appearances, so be sure to get on the social media feeds to check them out! A big addition on the guest front is that a bunch of the classic Rare development team will be coming to do a group panel, and hopefully signing my beloved Killer Instinct cabs :). If you got anything you want signing too, from Cobra Triangle, PinBot and Battletoads to Donkey Kong Country or Banjo Kazooie and Conkers, bring them along!

You only have until the end of March to get your hands on cheaper Earlybird tickets and Membership Cards, so be sure to get your tickets soon.

I'm booked in too, Park Inn. That is great to hear that some Rare folk are doing a panel. cNp - looking forward to playing the new 2p Vectrex game. Interested to see what Dave Perry has to say too, portrayed as the villain, he seems to come across quite well in interviews and there no denying he was a skilled player, just maybe don't mention Mario 64. Will be a super weekend. Game on!
