Pinball junkies in the UK have a big event to look forward to, the UK Pinball Party. It begins tomorrow and runs through Sunday although they already have held a warming up event with a competition between Martyn Raison (the top ranked junior UK player) and the two times Pinball World Champion Gary Flower. This competition was for the UK pinball Party’s Charity Challenge and it also saw new Stern-made pinball machines provided for the event. Details on that and tomorrow’s party can be found in the press release below.

If you’re in the UK and you love pinball, it can be a bit of a pain to find machines. I can only think of one in my home town! So, Thor be praised, the lovely people of UK Pinball Party have organised a wonderful festival of pinball for August 13th-15th at the Barcelo Daventry Hotel. The event boasts over 100 machines from all eras of pinball, set to freeplay for your enjoyment. Besides the games, the event has a dinner event on the 14th with Dennis Nordman, designer of tables such as White Water, Indianapolis 500 and Pirates of the Caribbean. Rounding out the event will be machines for sale, arcade video games, raffles, jukeboxes and more.
Show entry is £5 for the Friday and £10 for the Saturday and Sunday, with extra fees for events and accommodation. Event pre-registration is open now at the UK Pinball Party website.
