Boardgames are great! The hours-long grumpy games of Monopoly on a wet afternoon are a thing of the past. Modern games are engaging, varied, family-friendly and... FUN!
We want everyone to enjoy boardgames - or at least have a chance to try them out! The Didsbury Games Festival is an informal day of playing some new boardgames, meeting people who play games, and having fun. It's family-friendly during the day, with a bar and more grown-up games during the evening.
- A free library of games to check out and play. Odd ones, firm favourites, old and new. See what's available. Take the opportunity to play a game you've always fancied, or play one of our recommendations.
- Tables with family-friendly games and Games Festival stewards to take you through the rules and teach you to play with an introductory game. * Learn to play games your kids or family or you will love, then check out the game and play some more!
- Role-playing sessions run by Games Festival stewards for total beginners. Fancied role-playing but never got your Ork on? Try one out!
- More fun and slightly silly activities for kids.
It all takes place at St Catherine's Community Centre, School Lane, Didsbury, M20 6HS.
Doors open at 12.00pm on Saturday 19 October, 2019, and we are all out at 11pm.
There is limited parking at the venue: Metrolink tram to Didsbury Village, or number 42 or 142 bus to Didsbury is your best bet. Ten minutes walk to Burnage or East Didsbury mainline train.
