NORTH EAST GAMING FESTIVAL RETURNS IN ITS THIRD YEAR
YOUTUBE gaming sensations and life-size characters from best-selling video game Minecraft will be heading to the North East for an annual family gaming festival.
Nethermined – an unofficial event around the game Minecraft – will be held in Newcastle for the third time on Saturday, February 11 at Northumbria University Students’ Union.
The day gives families the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of activities including playing Minecraft, meeting some of the top YouTube gamers and characters from the game including main character Steve and enemy of the game, Creeper, as well as taking part in workshops.
A special Parents Zone has also been set up as part of this year’s event, where parents can get valuable tips about protecting their children who play games online, as well as learning more about their youngsters’ favourite games.
“We’re delighted to be bringing the festival back for its third year in Newcastle.
“It’s always a fun-filled day for families and also has a strong educational value for the parents, who want to get to know a little more about the gaming culture that their kids are a part of.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming families from across the North East to what we hope will be our biggest and best Nethermined festival yet.”
Minecraft is a block-building computer game which has ballooned in popularity over the past few years and has a vast online following.
Tickets for the day are £18 or a family ticket, which can be used by two adults and two children, or one adult and three children, can be purchased for £60.
