    Video Game Market
    Leeds Town Hall - Saturday 15th March 2014

    Open 10am - 4pm
    1,000s Of Video Games
    Collectibles, Merch & more
    Everything From Spectrum, SNES, Dreamcast To PlayStation 4


    Fed up of missing the bargains at the car boot sales? Annoyed at the frequent bidding wars on online auction sites? Prefer to inspect your item before buying? You're in luck!

    On Saturday 15th March 2014 RetroCollect is hosting the very first UK Video Game Market in the centre of Leeds. This event will host up to 40 different traders/sellers each with their own stock of video games - old and new - allowing you to shop to your heart's content, in person, without the early morning starts or the constant refreshing to check your bids.

    Expect to see countless retro & modern games, rare titles, Japanese & US import releases, video game merchandise, toys, comics & books, strategy guides, modified consoles and much much more!

    And last but not least, be sure to bring along your spare games and unwanted titles. Trading is very much encouraged, and who knows, you may find that your gaming holy grail is within reach through part-exchanging and some old-fashioned car boot sale style haggling!

    Find Out More Here!

    I went to the event (well tried to!). Stuck outside for nrly an hour waiting to get in then told by a security gaurd that it was a one in one out policy & we could be waiting a very long time to get in. A lot of ppl decided to leave after that. Pretty poor experince overall. Wouldnt bother attending again!

    sorry you had that experience fatkitty, in all honesty there was a much much bigger turnout than was expected, we anticipated around 4/500 people coming in and out over the course of the six hours but we actually got over 1500 people in the end. The queues died down toward mid afternoon so wasn't too bad towards the end of the day. Please don't be put off by the next one as we will have a building with a much bigger capacity so everyone can get in.
