Building on our extremely successful Portsmouth Comic Con: International Festival of Comics and Guildhall Games Fest we are excited to debut the city’s first modern gaming expo, P1-G.

Working with Hampshire Gaming Hub and games industry luminaries Rocket Jump, and Andy Griffiths, P1-G is being planned to be the top gaming show in the South East showcasing the very best in modern gaming from publishers and developers big and small across PC, console and mobile.

Portsmouth Guildhall is the perfect venue for a bespoke, multi-faceted gaming event. It’s handful of different themed areas, including a massive auditorium allows exhibitors to be housed in their own dedicated spaces. The showfloor will have multiple themed zones dedicated towards the latest indie games, big blockbuster releases, tournaments, VIP panels, cosplay competitions, merchandise and much much more.

Unlike most gaming events in the UK, every pound raised from ticket sales for this event goes direct to charity, in this case The Guildhall Trust, who will fund skills workshops, creative industry days, dynamic learning opportunities and community outreach programmes in their vision to inspire, entertain and transform lives.

Join us and be part of Portsmouth’s biggest gaming event!
