North West Playtesters 2019: in association with BAFTA

This event takes place on: Oct 26 at 12:00 in The Campus

North West Playtesters return to The Sharp Project this October, this time with our friends at BAFTA. Join us for a day of testing new tabletop games, video games, virtual reality and more.

We will be welcoming both professionals and enthusiasts to showcase their games and gather valuable feedback from the general public and industry peers. If you are a fan of playing games, this is a chance to be one of the first to try out up-and-coming titles and give feedback directly to the developers.

This time we are supported by BAFTA. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) is a world-leading independent arts charity that brings the very best work in film, games and television to public attention and supports the growth of creative talent in the UK and internationally.
