What does the challenge involve? 
Play your favourite video games at eDen Esports bar during a 24 hour period and raise a target of £250 sponsorship money.

We will be putting on a few leagues throughout the event to play either amongst teams or on your own, with a chance to win prizes! There will also be plenty of time to try out other games at your own leisure.

All the money raised by you and your fellow players will go to Martin House Children’s Hospice.

Can I come along to support players?
Yes, you can, on Sunday 12th August.

Doors open from 11:00am and under 18s are welcome to support their fellow gamers, however, they must be accompanied by an adult. 

What if I struggle to game for 24 hours? 
Make sure you are well rested and get plenty of sleep the night before. If you do get tired, take a nap. You can always complete the 24 hours when you wake up.

Can under 18s take part? 
This is an 18+ event for the players but we welcome all ages to come along for support on Sunday 12th August.
