A must for gaming fans

With everything from classic game memorabilia to current releases, in a hall filled with traders, ‘The Video Game Market’ will welcome gamers of all generations to Doncaster Dome on Saturday June 29.

Andy Brown from Replay Events, who run the Video Game Market, said: “We are looking forward to bringing The Video Game Market back to Doncaster next week.

“We were completely overwhelmed by the amount of people who visited The Video Game Market at Doncaster Dome in March. It was our biggest event in Doncaster to date.

“The popularity of video games continues to go from strength to strength and it was great to hear that people travelled from far and wider to Doncaster for the event.

“As always there will be a treasure chest of classic games for passionate gamers and collectors.”
