Bits and Bytes

to Saturday 20 February 2016 18:00
All ages welcome. Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
Dreamland Margate is proud to support Bits & Bytes in association with GEEK and Marine Studios.
With Margate’s famous GEEK festival taking a break this year, Bits and Bytes is to offer a showcase of how perfectly the worlds of gaming and creativity collide. With video gaming, cosplay and interactive art, there is something for anyone. Two guest curators from last year’s event are behind Bits & Bytes, a Margate duo motivated by a desire to see GEEK back on the calendar in 2017 (watch this space!)
Dreamland offers them a perfect Art Deco Ballroom to celebrate their community gaming experience. Expect costume related play and gamers of all ages playing, making and sharing incredible costumes, computer games, board games and group games.
Appearing on the day are:
Great Kentspectations (steampunk)
The Micro Museum (vintage computers and games)
Genetic Moo’s interactive art installations Textile Rebels Margate, who will be 'yarn bombing the event' i-Cosplay (cosplay anti bullying group)
Pleo (artificial intelligence baby robotic dinosaur)
Wain Games' retro gaming items
Plus a variety of consoles to play from retro to current
