RetroPlay is back for a second year and this time we're raising money and awareness for local charity, Kids Out.. We are made up of two local businesses The Retro Centre & Digi-Steve Photography, who are working together to put on this local event to raise essential funds for Kids Out and at the same time for the local communities to have an amazing day of fun!
On the 9th September 2018, our main event, RetroPlay – Movie, Gaming & Comic Festival will be returning to Leighton Buzzard. This spectacular Movie / TV, Gaming and Comic Book themed family fun day will immerse visitors in a world of silver screen fantasy. Interact with an incredible collection of iconic replica vehicles, meet and greet your favourite Superheroes and legendary movie characters, and even a T-Rex!! On the day we will have a range of attractions for all the family, TV and Film props as well as Stalls selling all kinds of Toys, Collectibles, comics and more. There will be Competitions, Special Guests and a Retro Gaming area with a range of retro consoles and games....
Last year we welcomed close to 1000 visitors and raised over £1000 for Autism Bedfordshire. Let's do it all over again!
WHAT VISITORS SAY
"I gave the five stars before the event because I had no doubt that the retroplay team was going to put on an amazing show. They were planning it with passion and excitement which is what a lot of these events are missing. These days a lot are doing it for personal gain and just assuming people will come. What they did was an amazing event which was enjoyed by over seven hundred people and had one of the best vibes to any event we've been to. All I can say is well done you've proven that on your first event you were better than several of the "established" conventions and raised a huge amount for charity. We'll be looking forward to next years!"
"Absolutely loved it, wasn't expecting much because of the venue but was totally blown away by how much was going on, all the cosplayers interacted with everyone, even each other and would recommend it to anyone, will definitely do it again. Thank you everyone for a fantastic day!"
"What an amazing day! So much going on. Suitable for all ages too. Everyone was so friendly-lovely atmosphere. Can't wait for the next event! Will be recommending to friends and family!"
"We had a absolutely fantastic time, the cosplayers were so lovely having there pictures taken with the kids but also taking the time to talk to them to, it was a brilliant day out. Can't wait for another event thank you !!"
"Brilliant! The atmosphere was buzzing and I can't believe just how many amazing cosplayers you had. Special mention to Deadpool, who was truly... well, Deadpooly. I am now involved in ongoing, tricky discussions about why my kids can't watch the film yet... "
