A Gaming Weekender, Drink, Play, Compete. Our weekend LAN has 48hrs of PARTY!


The LAN Party Evolved


If you've been to one of our previous events then you know what this weekend is all about – we drink, we eat, we play games and make great memories.
altLAN No.6 after the Quiz Show

altLAN is a community meet-up at its heart, gaming is a hobby for most of us and one that fills a fair amount of our spare time. The altLAN events are a meeting place for some face to face time with those gamer’s you have been playing online with for years.

The party starts on a Friday, we aim to have the room dressed to impress and all working by 13:00 ish. Everyone has a desk space to set up their equipment, you don’t have to bring a computer or console but most do.

We want everyone to feel welcome and included so as you arrive you are given a tour and introduced to all the staff you might also be given a shot from the teapot.
We light the fire-pit (outside) once the sun goes down and run a selection of events on the stage, just for fun and everyone is entered automatically, games like Super Smash Bro or Overcooked. We keep a leader board and give out awards normally in the form of alcohol. altLAN is an over 18’s event btw.
On Saturday morning we load you up with some breakfast which is always included in the ticket price and start the day with music and stage games around noon. We set up some off-stage events also with games like FIFA or timed events on games like Trials Fusion.

As everyone recovers from Friday, around 18:00 ish we run the Quiz which sees everyone form teams and play a few rounds of gaming-related trivia interlaced with lots of booze and quality tunes. We normally see the night out into the early hours with some Rock Band on stage.

On Sunday another quality breakfast is dished up in the morning and we run some of the finals from the previous days' events. S
unday is a great day for card games and board games which you will find getting played at various times, as most people are hanging on Sunday the music is more chilled and generally a relaxed vibe. By 18:00everyone is packed and heading home, although sadly it is over we are all normally totally knackered by this point and need to recover.

Owlie the altLAN mascot
altLAN is a passion project and will always change and adapt, every event we run teaches us something new.
We hope for altLAN to grow and be successful of course, but at a pace that will allow us to maintain the intimacy and essence of what makes the altLAN Gaming Weekender so special.
