The Pop Up Arcade Foundation

The Pop Up Arcade Foundation is a Staff lead initiative that's all about sharing our love of gaming with young people who've been through a rough time. We've been honoured to work with amazing partners like Make-A-Wish UK, Goerge and the Gaint Pledge and the National Autism Society. If you'd like us run a free gaming event for a group of deserving young people you know, please get in touch through our Foundation Page 



The government just published their list of exceptions to the “Rule of 6” and we’re glad to say that we fall under a pretty clear exemption:


There are exceptions where groups can be larger than 6 people. These include:


  • for supervised activities provided for children, including wraparound care (before and after-school childcare), groups and activities for under 18s, and children’s playgroups



We create clearly marked and colour coded gaming zones that keep each guest a safe 1m apart.


We have PS4's, Xbox One's, Wii U's and Nintendo Switches and a great range of the latest games for the kids to play.


Thanks to some really cool tech, we can then link all the screens together so anyone can play any game on any console with any of their friends without needing to leave their zone or touch any controller but their own and we'll have no more than two kids sharing one of our big 1080p gaming screens so they'll have plenty of space.

Since we need to be outside we would run all of this under a waterproof gazebo.

We're also able to have up to 7 people all playing Fortnite at one time.


Our All-Weather Heated Tents are designed to keep everyone dry and warm even in the worst of weather. The tents large and well-ventilated so all there is plenty of room for social distance and plenty of fresh air moving throughout.


We need about 4mx6m of outside space. We have long extension leads so we can be up to 50m from the house.


6 screen set up, linked up screen so they can play with their friends without needing to move around.


Safety is our top priority and we’re taking every measure to make sure that we’re within all the guidelines:


  1. Our host will be wearing PPE (face shields and gloves) the whole time. 

  2. We will be disinfecting all the equipment before the kids come anywhere near it

  3. We have clearly marked and coloured zones for each kid making sure they are a safe distance from each other and the host. 

  4. We’ve even developed a system that allows the host to access all the equipment while being safely away form the kids so they can fix any issues or help the kids with the games while staying at a safe 1m distance.

  5. We also have a well thought out system for getting the kids to and from their gaming zones while maintaining a safe distance.



If things change we’ll change with them. We want to give your guests the best possible experience we can with in the guidelines. As the regulations relax we will be constantly updating our experiences to make the most of those changes and we’ll let you know as soon as those options appear.
