A swimming pool, a bandstand and an ancient cave system: just some of the places where you'll be able to play never-before-seen games during the ninth annual GameCity Festival.

Created in partnership with NTU, GameCity 9 will take place in venues across Nottingham.

Highlights include a special celebration of the written word, when GameCity will temporarily replace all its graphics with text; the revelation of the winner of the coveted GameCity Prize; and a dramatic expansion of the Open GameCity programme to showcase new and experimental work.

The Sheriff's Gauntlet

As a climax to the festival on the afternoon of Saturday 1 November, an ancient Nottingham tradition will be revived as the Sheriff of Nottingham once more invites the public to prove themselves worthy of a grant of land, through trials of skill and ingenuity.

Thousands of participants will take on exciting challenges at locations across the city, in an effort to have a piece of land in Nottingham formally dedicated to them. The event will commence in Market Square with a dramatic fanfare specially composed by Daniel Rosenfeld, famed for his work on the Minecraft soundtrack.

Events are free of charge. For more information, timings and sign-up details visit the GameCity website.
