Bristol Games Hub deskspace is CHANGING!!!

The Bristol Games Hub will continue to run events, advocacy, share local games news, jobs and events in this very newsletter, we’re here to support games companies in the South West.
As of April 1st the hub deskspace will now be moving downstairs into the second floor 77 Stokes Croft, Bristol and has evolved into a new venture, CO-OP MODE! The new space has a new kitchenette, three meeting rooms and the same super fast internet and good vibes… CO-OP MODE, like its sister organisation Bristol Games Hub, is also a not-for-profit company and was created to support games and interactive media as a place to work, collaborate and enjoy an event. The Bristol Games Hub has helped support the start-up of this new company to deliver deskspace services into the future.
Get involved with the new deskspace by: renting a desk, joining our events hosted at CO-OP MODE, or dropping by for a coffee and a tour. 
CO-OP MODE would like to thank the Games Hub Directors for supporting the new space, and to everyone who is part of the games hub community for their support.
