Esports News UK is teaming up with renowned UK events provider Epic.LAN, plus ENDX, for a very special UK esports community party this month.
Combining Epic.LAN’s 20th birthday and 40th Epic.LAN, with Esports News UK’s eighth birthday, the party will feature food, drink, networking, games and prizes.
The UK Esports Community Party will take place at Epic 40 at Kettering Leisure Village, Thurston Drive, Kettering, Northants, NN15 6PB, on Saturday October 28th, from 7.30pm to 2am.
At least 100+ community guests, Epic.LAN attendees and esports fans expected.
Also, Counter-Strike fantasy esports trading platform ENDX have kindly put aside some funds behind the bar and towards food.
ENDX will also be giving away in-game E$ currency, merch and other prizes on the night, as well as running a CS surf map competition.
The LAN event overall is powered by PC giant Intel.
There will be coverage on the Esports News UK and Epic.LAN channels, including images and video from the night.
Esports News UK editor Dom Sacco said: “I’m really excited to be teaming up with Epic.LAN and ENDX for this community party. Thanks to the sponsors and to Epic.LAN for letting me join the party! I’ll also be celebrating my birthday on the 26th and plan to binge some Starfield in the LAN hall over the weekend, so come along and I’ll see you there.”
Epic.LAN Epic 40 attendees will gain free entry to the party, while anyone else can attend by grabbing a spectator ticket for Epic 40, which costs £16 for the day.
