EGX Rezzed is a video games event brought to you by the team behind EGX. It's a smaller event but still features many playable pre-release games on both PC and console (with a strong focus on indie titles), developer sessions by well-known game designers and the opportunity to chat with developers on the show floor.

There's also a career bar run by Ukie which may be of interest if your children want to get into the games industry.

This makes it a nice low key event for families wanting to try out their first video game Expo. It's also a great way to discover loads of brilliant games.

EGX Rezzed 2019 will take place from Thursday 4th to Saturday 6th April at Tobacco Dock in London, from 10am-6pm daily. For more information on the getting to the venue head to their location page.

Visitors of all ages are welcome to attend, however, under 16s need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

EGX Rezzed will feature a number of 18+ rated games and developer sessions. Under 18s will not be permitted to play these games or attend these sessions even if they are accompanied by a parent.

It's worth noting that Tobacco Dock has some strict rules on bringing food into the venue. While it will be fine to bring in unbranded food (such as packed lunches for kids), venue staff won't allow you to bring in meals brought from outside restaurants such as McDonald's etc.

There will be a number of stalls from which to buy food at the event. Alternatively, there are plenty of restaurants, pubs and cafes nearby. You are welcome to leave the event and return at any point using your wristband.

It's worth checking out the mobile app for EGX Rezzed. Please bear in mind that although the app is available to download now, the guide itself will not be released until a week or two before the event. iOS users can download the app here. Android users should head here.
