Members of the Rock Paper Shotgun Community will be gathering for a day out at Bury Arcade Club. This is an old mill building packed full of Arcade cabinets, gaming PCs, pinball machines etc. We'll spend the day playing games, chatting, eating, drinking.
Saturday 26th January 2019. The club opens at 11:00 so I will try to get there around then. It remains open until 23:00, so we'll see who's still going by that point. It's possible to buy food from two locations in the club, or you could head out towards Bury town centre. If there's enough people interested, something could be arranged for Sunday as well
Those coming from further away are probably best taking the Train to Manchester (Picadilly, Victoria, Deansgate are all fine), then getting on a Metrolink service to Bury. From Bury Interchange, it's a 10-15 minute walk to the Arcade Club. This includes anybody flying in to Manchester Airport - take the Train in, then Metrolink out. A pre-booked Taxi would be the alternative, but would probably be fairly expensive. There are numerous local taxi firms and Uber if you don't want to walk.
I made a video showing how to buy the right Metrolink ticket from Manchester city centre to Bury. Turn subtitles on
