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.
