Gamers, get ready, because Power UP festival is back in Manchester by popular demand.
The video games festival is making its return to Manchester this summer at the Science & Industry Museum, where guests will have the chance to play some of the most popular games from the past 40 years, including Pong, Pacman, Minecraft and Mario.
Instead of a short stint this year, Power UP is back for the WHOLE summer. That’s right, from 20 July to 1 September you’ll be able to get your game on as much as you like, challenging your friends or even just challenging your highest scores.
Power UP festival is back this summer
There are 90-minutes sessions in play, as well as adult-only evenings sessions and half-day sessions.
For the first time, Power UP will feature handheld consoles such as the Gameboy and the Atari Lynx.
Mark Cutmore, Head of Commercial Experiences, said: “We know that Power Up is one of our most popular events of the year, and with sessions selling out for the past few years we decided that a two-week run just wasn’t enough.
“So I’m delighted to announce that Power Up will be in residence for the entire summer, giving more opportunities to play than ever before.”
Tickets start at £7 and you can buy them here.
