GCT Gaming Social makes Temporary move to NUCASTLE for first part of 2023

GCT will be closed for redevelopment work from January - April 2023.

‘NU’ VENUE Newcastle United Foundation’s state of the art facility NUCASTLE will be the new (temporary) home of GCT Gaming Social from Tuesday 3rd January 2023, 18.00 – 20.00.

Alongside the consoles you love to play each week, the venue offers an exciting addition to your Gaming Social experience - a fully equipped, e-sports gaming suite which is accessible to attendees 19.00 – 20.00 every week.

We’ve been gathering important information from attendees over the past few weeks to help us to keep you safe while at Gaming Social as well as knowing the best way to contact you. At NUCASTLE, you’ll be greeted by a member of GCT staff each week who will have a register to check you in.


We’ll start 2023 with a new format at NUCASTLE. Sessions will be for young people aged 6 - 18 years (up to 24 years with additional needs). 6 - 12 years must be accompanied by an adult. When we return to GCT, we’ll offer a new Gaming Social session for over 18s. We’ll be in touch with more information regarding the new session.
