A successful gaming event is set to return to Barrow this summer and promises to be 'bigger and better'.

Level Up Gaming held its first event at Furness College in August last year.

This year, it will take place at The Forum on Saturday, August 3 and Sunday August 4 and will have more variety and space to house more gaming equipment.

The event will cover both modern and retro gaming including retro Sega and Nintendo consoles, as well the newer Playstation 5, Xbox Series and more.

Tournaments will also be held across the weekend with lots of prizes on offer.

There is also the chance to attend in cosplay however this isn't a requirement.

Games developers, as well as members of local colleges, universities and games developers, will also be on hand to talk to those interested in a career in the games industry.

A spokesperson for Level Up Gaming said: "We organise these events with the whole community in mind - so even if you're a casual gamer or you just want to give the kids something to do during the summer holidays, come along and join in the fun."

Free tickets are available at Eventbrite.
