Event Details


Welcome to the inaugural BarCraft-on-Thames!

We originally decided to run a community event in London over BlizzCon weekend because, although watching the stream at home is fine, it just doesn't compare to having a whole bunch of friends to geek out with. Frankly, we can't afford to fly all the way to Anaheim to attend BlizzCon in person, so we got to thinking about the next best thing - a community meetup! What better way to watch BlizzCon than in the company of fellow gamers, eh?

So, to cut a long story short, we've hired out a pub, and Blizzard have kindly granted us an event license to broadcast the BlizzCon stream live to the people who attend.

We'll be running a number of competitions throughout the evening and giving away *lots* of awesome loot. We have gametime cards, pets, mounts and other in-game goodies; some of our favourite sites, Curse and AskMrRobot, have donated several premium subscriptions; Multiplay have donated a 50-slot Mumble server; Enjin have donated a 6-month Ultimate plan and a 6-month Advanced plan; Logitech have given us a G710+ gaming keyboard and a gaming mouse, and that's just for starters - we've got many many more things in the pipeline! Exciting stuff indeed.

There will be a private bar, big-screen TVs streaming the BlizzCon action, and hopefully a great mix of people. If you're around on Saturday 9th November, we would absolutely love to see you!

Come and join us - watch BlizzCon with like-minded people, chat about all the revelations and developments going on in all Blizzard games, win some amazing loot, and have a blast. It'd be rude not to.




Zip. Nothin'. Nada. Bring some cash for booze and food (if you like), but otherwise entry (and competition entry) is absolutely free.



BarCraft-on-Thames is supported by, and couldn't exist without, the following:

Harvest Moon Guild, EU Alliance (Ghostlands) 

A huge thank you to all involved, and to the generosity of all the companies who donated goodies for us to give away.



Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

The event is being held at a pub with a private bar for attendees. Therefore, it is advisable that you bring ID and be over 18, although this isn't a hard and fast requirement. Attendees under 16 should be accompanied by an adult.


What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Being just off Oxford Street, it's really easy to get to the location. For a full list of nearby tube stops, overgrounds stations, car parks and nearby hotels, check out http://www.londontown.com/LondonStreets/great_castle_street_30a.html
