Event description


After appearing at the London Games Festival, mayamada GamePad is back! An exciting social gaming event celebrating diversity, inclusion and great games this summer.

Gamers at GamePad Social Gaming Event

The summer event will take place on Saturday 2nd September 2017. So have a blast on the summer's last weekend before heading back to school or work the following week.

Summer of Social Gaming

This is an experience for all gamers to meet up in the real world, have fun, and discover the magic of playing together in the same room. Along with a lineup of your favourite games, great competitions on the latest consoles.

"People were interacting with other while gaming, and it gave me the opportunity to share time with my children doing what they enjoy." - Sally

“I liked the diversity in terms of age ranges and people, we were all from different backgrounds and ethnicities but all with the same love...” - Miguel

“Great atmosphere, good for the family i.e. No 18 games so everyone could join in. Good fun!” - Tracey
