We have a lovely lounge where you can relax and play a board game or two, while enjoying complimentary tea or coffee (or if you prefer a drink or two from the bar).

The main room is where all the big talks, panels, readings and Q&As take place and in a side room a green-screen for fabulous photos of you in space! There will be a Lave Radio Podcast and a Panel and Q&A session with the lovely folks from Frontier Developments.  We have some rooms for more detailed discussions, panels & talks.

There is a lovely10713_10155803197630291_7647960297239241767_n room we are calling the Games Room…  despite the fact there are lots of games in the other rooms… here you might find   a Trader or two, room for X-wing miniature games, the Retro Lave corner, Docking Darts Challenge and find out how to play Jugger ( live combat game with swords).

Near to the entrance you will find the Artemis rooms, where we will have two Starship Bridge Simulators so you can have missions head to head against another player group… if you feel b11752502_10155803200220291_4373811194148367892_nrave enough.

We are having a demo room where you can try out a few different pieces of kit including Oculus Rift.

Also the LAN, where you will find Games and tournaments to take part in even if you don’t have your own PC with you.

We also have a number of wonderful guests, especially the team from Frontier Developments.
