This half term we’re going to be fighting some pretty big battles. Come and have a go at strategic war games old and new and discover how the museum’s collections have influenced video game design.

There’ll be hi-tech on-screen games and more traditional board games to play, as well as a packed programme of combat demonstrations, talks, have-a-go sessions and dramatic performances.

We’ll also be joined by specialist companies and clubs from the world of gaming.
