Thetford had all fun and games at first games convention




The first Thetford Games Convention took place on Saturday in The Carnegie.

Gamers of board and screens were put through their paces in the Cage Lane venue on a wide range of activities throughout the day.

Hosted by Thetford Town Council’s venue and events co-ordinators Tom Scott and Joe Cunnell, the convention showed the pair that there is a demand for more events like this in the town.

Tom said: “We had great feedback and had more than 100 people filter in and out during the day, which was a steady flow and what we sort of expected for the first event.”

Competitions that took place included Mario Kart and Minecraft and gave the organisers a lot to think about for future gaming events.

Tom said: “We are now looking at doing monthly week-night events, a youth club if you like for gamers, and then doing a bigger convention once a year or every other.”
