Organiser Lisa O’Brien said: “We are really excited about bringing what has already established itself as a hugely popular event to Peterborough.

“We chose Peterborough Arena because of its great location in the UK, with excellent motorway and rail links so people can travel easily from all over the country. We were looking for a large venue, and Peterborough Arena fits the bill perfectly.”

Peterborough Arena head of sales Charlie Lewis added: “This is a real coup for us particular as the gaming industry has such a huge following, and we are delighted that organisers have recognised the potential of this venue to host such an event.”
