Medway Rapture Gaming & Creative Festival

3 Jul 2021 - 4 Jul 2021

Medway is set to host the most unique gaming festival the UK has ever seen, in July 2021.

Medway Rapture Gaming and Creative Festival is due to be held at  The Historic Dockyard Chatham on Saturday, 3 and Sunday, 4 July 2021. It is being supported by organisations across Medway, including substantial funding from Medway Council.

The weekend family-fun festival, which is being supported by a multitude of incredible show stakeholders, will have something for everyone – from gaming pros to novices. There will be plenty of gaming fun and interactive exhibitions for people of all ages to get involved in, including children, families and students. This forms just a snippet of one of the three core shows taking place at Medway Rapture Gaming and Creative Festival:

  • Medway Rapture – traditional gaming event with plenty for gamers and families to do at The Historic Dockyard Chatham.
  • Medway Creative – an exciting creative arts, science, engineering, technology and videogames creation event with diverse and engaging content and activities at The Historic Dockyard Chatham.
  • Medway E-Sports – local university students and military teams will battle it out in virtual sporting events.

There will also be guest speaker talks and workshops for those wanting to learn more about the gaming and digital industry, as well as Medway’s four universities and MidKent College showcasing what they have to offer to our aspiring young people.


Tickets are £15 for a single day ticket and £28 for a single weekend ticket, with group savings on offer.

Tickets to the Rapture Gaming Festival provide access to all areas of the festival as well as a selection of The Historic Dockyard galleries and spaces (No.1 Smithery, No.3 Slip and the RNLI gallery). Please note HMS Cavalier, HMS Gannet, HM Submarine Ocelot and The Ropery will be closed during the festival.

All tickets are booked directly via the Rapture Gaming Festival ticketing portal (click on the button below).

This is a separately ticketed event and Historic Dockyard Annual Passes are not valid for this weekend.
