Our Secret Weapon

Come pull up a chair at our very own tavern! Last week Foostival UK announced Loading Bar 2 as the location to be on May 7th 2016. With so much to tell you about, we thought what better way to introduce you to our venue than show you! Foostival UK host Ed (Screenager) took a trip to Loading Bar 2 earlier this week and came back with a bunch of pictures. Loading Bar 2 is the second of the “Loading” bars and is a short walk from Stratford Station; click here for more details on how to get there.

Officially named “The Secret Weapon”, Loading Bar 2 is easy to spot, doused in bright blue and with Pacman guarding the entrance.

Secret Weapon Front

Inside is a tribute to all things gaming, with arcade machines, game art and retro consoles. It also features a range of drinks behind the bar, as well as tea and coffee for those of you that just want to stay awake. 5 top of the range gaming PC’s are housed in the bar, where we will put you all through trials of strength, endurance, and hitting space bar as a giant cat. Yep, that’s right we’ll be running a jumping puzzle challenge. Each of these PCs is outfitted with a keyboard, a gaming mouse and a controller (in case you’re feeling adventurous). We will have Guild Wars 2 running on each of the PCs, and will have a bunch of accounts ready if you can’t bring your own.

Secret Weapon also has a sound system, a projector system, a whole lot of those chair things, a bar, and awesome staff. They even have a little stage! I’ll be strutting around it on the day.

The staff at the bar tonight showed us around and as they have a fantastic venue for us to take over. Take a look at our gallery of images and keep an eye out for more information on the upcoming events & guests that will be coming to Foostival 2016.

Foostival UK 2016 heads to the Loading Bar 2

Hello Tyria! It’s that time of year again when we log out of WvW, exit the Mists, and skip the Shatterer, just this once. We’ve got lots to do here at Foostival UK and we’d like to share some of it with you.

We’ve had a few delays, some unexpected turns of events, and some nice surprises while we planned the latest Foostival UK. Now, we can announce that Foostival 2016 will arrive in London, England. That’s right, we’re heading back to London for another year of F000o0d, fun and, friends at Foostival 2016.

The kind folks at Loading Bar 2 have agreed to host us on May 7th 2016. Based in London’s Stratford region, Loading Bar’s new secret opened in 2015 and looks to be the perfect place for this year’s Quaggan get together. Previously known as the St James’s Pub, Loading Bar 2 is one of London’s top locations for gamers to congregate outside of our own bedrooms, with the original Loading Bar becoming a vibrant part of the local gaming scene. You can find out more about the team at Loading bar and what they do over at www.loadingonline.com while we get down to telling you more about our venue.

Loading Bar’s Secret Weapon is located just a couple of minutes walk from Stratford station. It can be reached on the London tube network on the DLR, Central line, and Jubilee line from the city centre. It has room for lots of Quaggans to place yourselves around the table, great internet connectivity, a host of gaming PCs, and a bar for those of you that think that clear stuff that Quaggans are so fond of isn’t water.

We are already starting to confirm some special guests, organising events, and getting ready for ticket sales. Keep an eye out and sign up to the newsletter for more information very soon.
