Revolution in the Bedroom, an exhibition about the early years of the British video game industry, will open at Gallery Oldham this Saturday. The show celebrates both the people and the hardware that helped make video gaming the billion pound creative industry it is today. This interactive exhibition features working models of early consoles and arcade machines, so visitors can try their hand at classics such as Ant Attack, Manic Miner, and The Hobbit. Four newly commissioned films will feature a series of interviews with the game designers themselves. Original game artwork from iconic designer Oliver Frey will be on show, as well as a mural by Turner Prize nominee Simon Patterson. The gallery is easily accessible by Metrolink – just a two-minute walk from the Oldham Central stop.

Sat 19 July – Sat 1 Nov, Gallery Oldham, Greaves Street, Oldham, OL1 1AL, 10am – 5pm, FREE entry,
