The Hand Baked Arcade are well known for their FREE to play arcade events across the UK. Installations have previously been seen at many of the best music festivals including Glastonbury, Glade & Bloc Weekend. Although they have also been seen in countless night clubs, art galleries and even on The Gadget Show, Channel 5.
Their last installations in Leicester Square and Farringdon were road blocked with eager punters so the venue size has been stepped up to allow the friendly, relaxed gaming vibe that Hand Baked are well known for creating. Expect as always to see many screens from small TV’s through to multiple video projections.
Background music will be supplied by Hand Baked DJ’s: lo-fi, underground, crazy, wonky, eclectic and electronic will be served up to help you BUTTON BASH!
So get down to the venue early, get the pints in and let nostalgia run through your veins, The Hand Baked Arcade is back in town!
