MLGX 2019 – Community Meet Up

June 28th, 2019 by

Ladies & Gentlemen of Midlife Gamer!

Whilst there is no September Expo in Birmingham this year, we have been working hard behind the scenes to arrange the traditional MLGX September meetup and are pleased to announce the first details of what we have planned.

On Saturday, September 28th, we will be returning to Birmingham to hold MLGX 2019 in a brand new central Birmingham venue; one which will be new to some, but very familiar to many. The evening will be a more relaxed affair, with plenty of opportunity to renew friendships or forge brand new ones. One thing is for certain; there will be a whole lotta love in the room.

The event will be ticketed as with previous years, and for each ticket there will be a nominal fee to cover room hire and other costs. We will announce further details soon, but we can confirm it will be no more than £5 per ticket.

We know many of you like to make a weekend of it and head to Birmingham on the Friday night to catch up with friends for some drinks and whilst there will be no EGX in Birmingham this year, we have been looking at activities available in the area and will be happy to help facilitate you organising some groups to take some of them on.

Here is a list of our favourites:

MLG Community Tabletop Gaming – Location TBC!
Escape Room
Ghetto Golf
Matrix Virtual Reality
Whistle Punks Axe Toss
Cannon Raceway
Tilt Bar (Pinball)
Grange Live Gaming
Geek Retreat

Adventures in Brum (640x267)

If you are coming along for the weekend and are interested in any of these, register your interest in the comments below and we can gauge popularity.
We cannot wait to announce more details soon so please keep an eye out for further announcements and a dedicated event page over the coming weeks in our ever growing FaceBook Group:

Thank You

Hey, you are simply awesome and we’re so glad that you’ve decided to be part of the Midlife Gamer Party 2015 at EGX.
We’ll update the Forum post attendees list to show that you’ve paid as soon as possible.

In the next few days, we’ll email you a unique ticket(s) for entry which you should either print or have on your phone when you rock up to the party.

The Party is upstairs in the Irish Center Birmingham – 14-20 High Street, Deritend (Digbeth), Birmingham, B12 0LN.


Remember, Doors open at 7pm with the party running from 8pm until….3am (so long as we keep buying from the bar)

They serve food until 9pm if you need to reload, but you have to munch downstairs – we wouldn’t want to mess up the dance floor!

Keep it under your hat, but we have a Karaoke DJ booked for the night who is going to give us a mix of music, singing and dancing. So warm up those vocal chords and wear your dancing shoes.

Of course, there will be a few surprises still to be revealed, but we know that the evening will be infinitely more amazing now that you are going to be there!

If you’ve got any issues you need to discuss, please feel free to email Adamski@midlifegamer.net, putting “MLGX Help” in the subject line.

On behalf of everyone here at Midlife Gamer and GamesAid, thank you.
