The Games Exchange

Drop into the market and share your favorite games with us and add them to the GoodGame art mural. Stay and play classic and new games with family and friends. The Games Exchange has been developed by artist Betab Zena as a place for people to meet and play games they love with - with friends, or with people they've never met before. This three day pop-up will transform a unit in the market into a games space.
Free, drop-in - no need to book.
