At Replay Events we love playing video games and putting on shows which celebrate classic and modern gaming. However, we are also very aware of the significance and impact video games have on our culture today. No company is better suited to provide you with a complete history of video games than Replay Events.
Replay Events have team members that have been working in the video games sector for several years. We have written for magazines, given TV and radio interviews, provided research material for books and publications – we’ve even been featured in a documentary on video games! We understand games, who made them, what makes them popular, how they have evolved and where they are heading.
Whether you are seeking a number of machines for a Museum exhibition, need advice on a particular era of video gaming for a documentary or just need some direction for the look and feel of your gallery display, look no further than Replay Events.
We can assist you in the design and planning of your display, provide machines, games and artwork for your exhibit or even provide a full setup staffed by knowledgeable technicians who will be on hand throughout your event. We have technicians up and down the country and are able to travel to almost anywhere within the UK.
Some examples of recent work we have undertaken includes assisting the Videogame Nation creators in designing their highly acclaimed show and providing machines, games and other hardware for their display.
In 2011 we were contracted by the Museum of Science and Industry to create three ‘stand alone’ video games shows as part of their ‘Year of Computing’ celebrations. Each event ran over half term and were designed to show the past, present and future of video games. All three events were very popular and received a very positive response from the public.
If you prefer to setup your own event we can have equipment couriered to any UK address or you are welcome to collect from our offices in Blackpool. If you are local we may be able to deliver for a small fee. See our Dry Hire page for more information on having kit delivered.
All of our equipment is fully PAT tested, RoHS compliant and is regularly cleaned and serviced, whilst our technicians all hold up-to-date CRB disclosures. Your safety and peace of mind is our priority.
Visit our stock inventory page for details of all the equipment we currently hold. We encourage you to design your own packages to suit your needs, however we understand this can be a bit daunting so we also have some example packages which we can tailor to your requirement.

From LCD to 3D: The Evolution of Handheld Gaming – 28th May-5th June 2011, Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI)
Replay Events’ third MOSI exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester proved once again that the retro consoles will give the newer machines a run for their money!
