NERG 2017 , 1St & 2nd July - Newcastle
« on: February 14, 2017, 09:53:04 PM »
http://www.northeastretrogaming.com

Back to its spiritual home for it's 5th annual event is NERG.  This is in my mind the highlight of the UK retrogaming scene, run  by an enthusiast for enthusiasts.  Already promising 100 cabs and 50 pins, I probably will bring down some Williams goodies.

If you of you continental cousins can make it across to Brexitland for this I do thoroughly recommend it.  The organiser Phil,does have a discounted rate at a hotel close to the event and usually lays on some transport to and from the hotel on the day also.

Flights are readily available from to Newcastle, and even an overnight ferry from Rotterdam if you want to bring a cab or 2 and the family over.  The Metro centre is also rumoured to be a rather large shopping centre if you want to bring the wife / girlfriend / family for a shopping trip.

Did I forget to add that it is also a cracking night out in the 'Toon

I thoroughly recommend this folks, and you can get to meet all those lovely UK enthusiasts who are to afraid to travel to Eurocade.  I can even throw in a trip to the Black Bull to see whatever random punk band is playing on the Friday night.

Any questions you have follow the links on the page above or drop a post to UKVAC / Jamma+.

Sounds awesome, I visited Newcastle back in 2003, we stayed there a few nights and took a daytrip to Glasgow for an Old Firm  :)
Only thing I remember from the nights out in NC are my friend getting a headbutt after answering the question "-Where are you from" with "-We are Swedish vikings"  :lol:
Ohh, memories...

I will visit atleast one meetup in Europe this year I hope, maybe England would be the place to go..

I would love to come but I already have a lot of trips planned the 1st half year of 2017 so I can't

I'll probably go to the UKVAC meet later this year

We have a micro brewery at NERG in the main hall this year. As well as selling their own beers, they're also brewing a special beer for the event. You'll get to drink a pint of NERG and if you love it, you'll be able to purchase bottles of it to take home too  ;D
