Leicester Gets Retro Active

Are you a fan of 80s movies? A fan of all things retro? Classic arcade games and retro gaming consoles? Well then this is your lucky day as Retro Active is coming to Phoenix Square on Saturday 3rd September! What’s more, early bird tickets are only £15 until Friday 5th August.

On the day you can expect 12 solid hours of the best retro activities you can think of! There will be 80s movies showing all day, including Goonies, Labyrinth, Lost Boys, Robocop and Big Trouble in Little China. Plus you can vote to choose for the final film between Ghostbusters, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Weird Science, Top Gun or Splash.

Then on to the gaming. You’ll be thrown back to your childhood as you’re faced with a collection of over 50 systems to play with! Think SNES, think Dreamcast, think Atari 2600 with your favourite retro games from Frogger to Crazy Taxi. You can even take time out and enter a Street Fighter tournament!

Still not enough? Then why not check out the Arcade Room. You can leave your coins at home as they’ll be set on free play all day, so you can play on all of the arcade machines until your eyes hurt!

We don’t remember the last time we were this excited about a day event in the city so make sure you get your early bird tickets now! You can book yours HERE.
