Details

The Yorkshire Games Festival is back with a new February slot! The five-day festival, now in its third year, will run from 6–10 February 2019.

Once again, we’ll be playing host to a fantastic delegate conference, with special guest speakers and workshops tailored to those studying games-related courses or starting their career in the industry. Plus our Let’s Play! weekend will offer plenty of free gameplay and activities for all the family to enjoy together.

New for 2019 is the Young Developers’ Conference, a brand-new partnership with BAFTA. Designed to engage the industry’s youngest and brightest stars, the conference will inspire and inform younger game makers—and their families—about the amazing opportunities available within the games industry.

We’re also proud to welcome the legendary Jeff Minter of Llamasoft fame. Jeff is the man behind the Atari Jaguar’s critically acclaimed flagship Tempest 2000 and Xbox Live Arcade’s celebrated Space Giraffe, among others. As part of our delegate programme, Jeff will join us to discuss his exciting career in games. We’ll also welcome back Guardian games journalists (and friends of the festival) Keith Stuart and Jordan Erica Webber.

Yorkshire Games Festival 2019 is set to be the biggest (and dare we say best!) festival yet, continuing to celebrate games culture and introduce new generations to the science and art of games development.
