NERG is a yearly event for the North East, bringing retro gaming back to the modern day. Some of the best loved video and pinball machines from yesteryear at your fingertips to bring those arcade memories flooding back...
Once again, NERG was a massive success and there are SOOOO many people to thank. There is a massive amount of work that goes on behind the scenes months before the actual weekend which then continues during and afterwards. So, here goes…..
