MLGX 2018 – Midlife Gamer Party at EGX

August 3rd, 2018 by

Website Header

This September the Eurogamer Expo (EGX) returns to the Midlands as the National Exhibition Centre plays host to the UK’s biggest video game event.

For the eighth year running, Midlife Gamer will be hosting some regular meet ups over the EGX 2018 weekend and of course an after show party on the Saturday night. Gaming guys and gals from all corners will be making the trip and we’d love to meet up with each and every one of you.

If you are interested in joining us, head to the Facebook Event page HERE.

EGX will be in the centre of the NEC as usual and this year we will be having meet ups on the Friday and Saturday during the day where you can meet some of the MLG Community team and fellow Midlife Gamers. Come and find Adamski, Spinky (Matt) or Baron Von Pleb (Neale) to get your unique lanyard! Keep an eye out on Social Media nearer the time for details of times and locations.

There will also generally be a big bunch of Midlife Gamers at the Wetherspoon’s Atrium Bar throughout the day (look out for Midlife Gamer Lanyards and T-Shirts – they will be worn by the friendly looking bunch of guys and gals who all seem to be very happy and laughing a lot!) Do come over and say hi and within 60 seconds you will feel like you are amongst old friends.



Once again we will be returning to the Irish Centre in Digbeth on the Saturday night, where we will be hosting the MLGX Charity Party for GamesAid, featuring fun, games and our favourite Karaoke DJ, Dano!

Doors open at 7:30pm for a party from 8pm till 1:30am.

Tickets will be going on sale on Friday 3rd August at 10am priced just £7.50 (inc booking fee) each.

You can purchase your tickets, safely and securely here: MLGX2018 Tickets

We are extremely happy to announce the return of our famous Sexy Quiz! It has been absent for the last few years, but makes it’s return this year. Each team can have a maximum of 6 members and quiz entry is included in the price of your entry ticket. Don’t worry if this is your first year – there will be plenty of wonderful people who will happily welcome you into their team. Like any good quiz, there will be prizes up for grabs so it will be well worth getting involved.

There will of course be another of our fantastic charity auctions where you will have the chance to bid on a selection of unique gaming related goodness with all proceeds, of course, going to GamesAid.

As with previous years there are some costs involved which is why this is a ticket only event, but once costs have been covered every penny will be going to GamesAid. Midlife Gamer doesn’t make any money from this event. We want to be transparent and hope that you will join us for a fantastic and memorable get together. You may enter on your own, but we guarantee you’ll leave with 100 new friends – you won’t want to miss it.

We’ll be upstairs at the Irish Centre Birmingham – same room as last time for anyone that was there. Everyone who buys a ticket will be issued with a special wristband on the night to control entry. You will need to bring a printed or electronic copy of each of your tickets so that we can scan your unique barcode and allow entry. Unfortunately without your ticket we will be unable to grant entry.

Under 18s MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
Food is served downstairs – great prices, great quality.
There is no lift available, but anyone that needs assistance, there will be plenty of us on hand to help, please just ask.

The Midlife Gamer Eurogamer Expo Twitter hash tag for everyone to follow is:

Start using the tag now and over the course of the Expo. Let us know what you’re planning, where you are going to be and if there is anything exciting going on.
Don’t forget to post your photos with the hashtag too! Keep an eye on this for ad hoc meet ups at the event too.

Follow @midlifegamernet on Twitter
Any questions, please feel free to contact @AdamskiUK, @BaronVonPleb or @EggDaddy.


For those of you unable to make the event, but who wish to support this year’s MLG fundraising for GamesAid, we have set up a JustGiving donations page HERE. It is such a great cause, and any donations would be greatly appreciated.
