On Wednesday August 16, the public is invited to play on their favourite old school consoles from 11AM to 3PM in Sheldon Square in Paddington Central, west London. Consoles from SNES to Megadrive, N64, Playstation, Atari 2600 and Game Cube will be on hand to provide a free blast of nostalgia to anyone in the area.
The event is being put on as part of Life Meets Tech, a citywide campaign taking place across London from June to August. Events are set to include everything from drone racing to mindfulness workshops.
