If you are a pinball fan and you live in the UK then next year you’ll have a great time thanks to several events that will see some huge pinball shows making their way to the country. First off, Pinballers Anonyomous is once again organzing the UK Pinball Show, which has become the largest pinball event in Europe where players can not only play from a variety of great games, they also can trade, buy parts and games, get advice for repairs and collecting, etc. In addition to that, the European Pinball Championships (organized by PinballNews) will be held during the show where the best players in Europe will come together to compete for big prizes. Like with last year, they will be holding a big dinner and award ceremony that will feature a guest speaker (likely a pinball game designer) and it will certainly be quite the show to attend. The show will happen on July 24th-26th at Northampton Saints Rugby Club (in Northampton of course).
Then to sweeten the deal, a week after this show, the Pinball World Championships will be held at the home of Pinballers Anonyomous just outside of London. This marks the first time that the World Championships will take place outside of the US. The event will still span 3 days time as the best players in the world compete for the title of World Champion.
If there are more events beyond what was aforementioned here, we’ll be sure to let you know!
