    The Curioso at Mansfield Museum Theatre show set in a curiosity shop.

    ‘The Curioso’ (McWheel & Munch Proprietors), is a quaint theatrical shop of curiosities in a time of it’s own which is opening it’s doors to your imagination and inviting you to enter the foolhardy, weird and wonderful world of artefacts from the chaotic & humorous life of harmless co-Proprietor Ian Munch.

    GameCity6

    Last Thursday, we were lucky enough to attend the launch of GameCity6, Nottingham’s very own videogame culture festival. Now in its 6th year, GameCity has seen its audience increase and broaden quite spectacularly over the years.

    The launch event was hosted by the very entertaining Iain Simons, director of GameCity, and involved QR Codes cupcakes, a new edition of their ‘There’s Horace!’ game which we got quite excitingly involved in, videogames, special guests from around the world AND a lot of exciting announcements about this year’s festival.

    Our host reiterated the fact that GameCity is mostly about fun and his wish is for the 6th edition to be ‘even more fun’. The festival

Fun and Games at The National Videogame Arcade

Videogames are a pastime that easily splits opinion. Often hailed in the media as advocating negative behaviour, the focus on the beneficial aspects of gaming as a new way to learn, develop skills and have fun can be very much overlooked. Along with its annual festival Game City, The National Videogame Arcade in Hockley is…
