R-CADE Goes Old School For 5th Birthday!

This year we reach a very important milestone here at R-CADE. On January 20th we will be celebrating 5 years of our little gaming haven, can you believe it!? To mark this very special occasion we will be digging out our blazers, packing our lunch boxes and sharpening our pencils for a Back To School extravaganza! As we turn 5 years old it's time to party like we are in primary 5! We have created a whole bunch of exciting events for you to join in the fun this month, all with a little nostalgic twist! School uniforms are encouraged, playground toys will be provided and a whole month of throwback fun is guaranteed. Check out our upcoming events below:

Saturday 7th at 7pm (+18) Back To School Quiz: Get those revision books out as we take you through 6 rounds of some old school subjects. Every team will win a prize so no one goes home empty handed!


Friday, Saturday, Sunday 20th-22nd from 12pm

To celebrate 5 whole years of R-CADE, our family friendly retro game sessions will be reduced to £5 for the whole weekend! over 1800 video games and dozens of retro consoles to play for only a fiver! (t&c's apply)

Saturday 21st at 4:40pm Join us for a bumper retro gaming session at R-CADE. This school party is suitable for the whole family, and school uniforms are encouraged as we will have a photo station ready to get your school pics taken! We are digging out the old Pogs, Beyblades, yoyos and other classic playground toys too!

We keep the fun going with our over 18's school disco. Cheesy pop tunes will be blasting, the photo station will be in full swing and everyone can enjoy some birthday cake!

To finish off our spectacular month of events, we will have our very awesome pals from Roll Wi' It hosting a very special one shot D&D campaign. There will be a school theme so make sure to dig out those shirts and ties!


But wait! There's more...


For the whole month of January, every gamer who books into our arcade for some retro gaming will get up to 15% off everything in our retail store. You don't need a discount code, just show us your booking confirmation at the till and we will get you discounted!

We will also be running little in store competitions and giveaways throughout the month too, so make sure to visit our cafe or book in for some retro gaming this month!


It's been a hectic 5 years, we have gone through a pandemic, expansion, new staff, thousands of video games, hundreds of board games, two floods, one smashed window and a visit from a cat! We hope you can come and celebrate with us this month as we want to thank you all for supporting us for so long! Visit our website HERE for events, bookings and venue info. Game on!
