Minecraft maniacs and Fortnite fans assemble!

MineVention is coming to Dreamland on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th March, with a packed programme of demos, tournaments, talks and even a Guinness World Record attempt for Minecraft lovers big and small.

But they won’t be building and battling alone… for the first time at Dreamland, the online gaming phenomenon Fortnite will be pulling into the park on the iconic Razer Gaming Bus and running free tournaments throughout the event.

MineVention celebrates all things Minecraft through scheduled activities such as build battles, Q&A sessions, tournaments, educational talks, arts and crafts session, costume contests and on-stage challenges.

Popular Minecraft YouTubers Element Animation, TycerXand FalseSymmetry(with nearly 3 million subscribers between them) will also be available meet and greet sessions, and there will be plenty of brain-fizzling activities for Minecraft fans of all ages to get stuck into.

Fortnite fans can take part in one of the 16-player Battle Royale tournaments on the bus, with nearly 200 players aboard per four-hour session. The winner of each session will be rewarded with V-Bucks, the in-game currency used to buy skins, weapons and more. So if you think you have what it takes, head to MineVention!

Tickets for MineVention are £15 (+ booking fee) per person, per four hour session. Sessions run from 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 6pm (morning and afternoon sessions have the same content).

Under 3s go FREE.

This is an all ages event, but under 14s must be accompanied by an adult aged 18+.

More Details:

What is MineVention?
MineVention celebrates the game Minecraft through scheduled activities such as Build Battles, Educational Talks on Minecraft, Tournaments, Q&A Sessions, Arts and Crafts, a Costume Contest and On-Stage Challenges. The event also features popular YouTubers who will be available for FREE Meet and Greet opportunities as well as many other fun activities designed for Minecraft fans of all ages!

Over the past 4 years we have listened to our attendees and their families and we are delighted to announce that this year that we will be bringing MineVention Party sessions to our 2019 events. This allows us to provide a Minecraft party for you and your Minecraft fans and gives you the opportunity to come in the morning (allowing you the afternoon to do your own thing) or an afternoon session (allowing you to have a lie in!). Each session is for 4 hours.

What age group is MineVention aimed at?
Catering for all Minecraft fans is what we do! There is entertainment available for the very young and also for the older children in the family as well. Please note that the content of events can vary depending on location and available space, so if you have any queries please contact us directly!

Is MineVention autism friendly?
Yes we are! We work very closely with local Autism partnerships, sensory companies, and of course, parents to ensure that we provide an atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle that allows for families to continue enjoying the event. A member of staff will always be on hand for any assistance required. In 2019 we are introducing autism friendly sessions at our events, which will cater more specifically for children with autism. We also have a quiet room available during all sessions, should it be needed.

What is the difference between the Sunday morning autism friendly session and the other sessions?
The autism friendly session allows for families with children on the autistic spectrum to attend and have the MineVention experience in an environment that caters more for their needs. The session will include the same content as the other sessions but with the following:
Reduced capacity
No unnecessary tannoy announcements
No loud music
Reduced lighting
