GameCity takes place in venues across Nottingham city centre. The best thing to do if you’re just arriving at the festival is to head to the festival base on the Old Market Square, the heart of Nottingham’s busy shopping and social centre. There, you can pick up a festival programme, talk to one of our stewards to find out what’s happening, or get involved in one of the many events that will be going on.
We’ve prepared a handy map marked with all the confirmed festival venues hosting GameCity8 events. We’ve also marked some useful landmarks to help you get around.
