About

Retro Events Ltd is dedicated to bringing back the good old days of videogames, collectables & geek culture with specialist sales events, exhibitions, venue & equipment hire.

Founded in early 2015 with a mission to help collectors buy the items they needed and to spread the love of classic video games and all things retro, we have since created and ran many great events that have been attended by thousands of people.

Our events range from the dedicated sales fairs of the Super Retro Games Fair and the Collectorabilia, to our gaming events, the Retro Games Night, Press Start and Iron Gamer.

So if you are a fan of Videogames, Star Wars, Cosplay, Thundercats, Pokemon, Comics, Wrestling, Dr Who, the 1980s, 1990s or any pop culture field then click on the events page now to see what we have coming up!

As well as hosting our own events we also hire out our services for your events too. So if your convention, event, bar, wedding, lecture or party needs a either a retro gaming section, tournament or competition then get in touch with us to see how we can help. Whether its for a small get together or a big convention we can cater for all sizes. We have a large inventory of video games, consoles and computers, ranging from the Atari 2600 all the way up to the PS4 and XBOX One. At present we have a library of over 100 systems and thousands of games which is constantly expanding all ready to be played! Check out the services page for more information.

If you would like to sell at one of our events, sponsor a show or hire a retro gaming setup then get in touch with us today!

We are always on the lookout for systems, games and accessories, so if you are thinking of downsizing your collection, or have any old gaming or computer equipment in the loft then let us know what you have: we may well be interested in incorporating into our inventory for other gamers to enjoy.
