Established in 2016, Yorkshire Games Festival is a five-day extravaganza celebrating games culture, design and production, with special guests, workshops, master classes, and a fun-packed weekend for gamers of all ages.
More than 9% of the UK games industry is based in Yorkshire and the Humber. The festival is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the great games created here and welcome guests from across the UK and overseas.
Game Talks is our unique programme of talks, masterclasses and Q&A events featuring high-profile industry guests. Improve your knowledge and employability; be inspired and network. Game Talks is for industry professionals, recent graduates and those studying games-related subjects.
Let’s Play! family weekend
The Let’s Play! weekend is packed with gameplay, activities and live shows for all the family to enjoy together. Explore unique and boundary-pushing videogames, try out new games from Northern studios and play along in an interactive comedy show, all under one roof!
Young Developers Conference
New for 2019 was the Young Developers Conference, a brand-new partnership with BAFTA Young Game Designers. Designed to engage the industry’s youngest and brightest stars, the conference inspired and informed younger game makers—and their families—about the amazing opportunities available within the games industry.
