Website: Yorkshire Games Festival

The Yorkshire Games Festival returns for the fourth time, following its establishment in 2016. It’s a five day event celebrating games culture, design and production, with special guests, workshops, master classes, and a fun-packed weekend for gamers of all ages.

This year’s event features talks from a wide array of industry veterans, such as Mike Bithell talking about the recent John Wick Hex, Team17’s Chloe Crookes talking about quality assurance and Alysia Judge giving advice on how to talk to games media and get media attention for your game.

Over 9% of the UK games industry is based in Yorkshire and the Humber, making the festival an opportunity to celebrate games created in Yorkshire, in the UK and across the world at large.
