Event description

Following their hit TV show ‘Dara O Briain’s Go 8 Bit’, the WiFi Wars team return due to popular demand for their sixth annual lecture, to share what they've been up to during the last couple of years, and to show off their latest tech! Remember to bring your charged phone or tablet as it will be needed to play along.

Remember, every person that wants to play along needs to bring a fully charged phone or tablet with them.

This special matinee performance is being run particularly for families. The evening performance is more suitable for adults and older teenagers.

Please note, this event is being livestreamed by Wifi Wars.


The doors will open at approximately 1.30pm, with a prompt start at 2.00pm. 

Latecomers will be admitted into the gallery.


Copies of Steve's book, 'Hey! Listen! A Journey Through the Golden Era of Video Games', will be available for purchase at the event.
