We’ve also recommended a few FREE games which should be downloaded prior to J16. This means that there will be something that everyone can play at one time! check out our list below:
There will be several activities going on over the weekend, including a meal out on Friday evening, drinks at the Pub on Saturday evening, a raffle taking place on Sunday and finally a movie on Sunday evening (voting for the movie is currently taking place on our Facebook event page).

Thank you to all who came to J14. Despite a few hiccups along the way it was undoubtedly our best event to date!

Brought a ticket to J14, but not quite sure what there is to do during the weekend? Well look no further! – We’ve provided a basic list of things to keep you occupied during J14.
The main reason that you’ve brought a ticket of course! bring your pc, laptop or console down for a weekend of non-stop gaming with friends. We will also be hosting some fun tournaments for you to take part in, which are due to be announced very shortly.
- Retro gaming:
For the first time, we are also hoping to bring a few retro consoles to J14 for those of you feeling nostalgic… or for those who just want to show off their perfect dark, or Mario kart skills. More information will be provided on this soon, as soon as we can confirm exactly what consoles we can get to the venue.
- Projector fun times:
The projector will make its regular LAN appearance, and can be used for some frantic multiplayer gaming, or simply chilling out and watching a film.
As our regulars will know, we have the venues bar open at select hours during the event (to be confirmed nearer the event) and just a matter of feet from your desk. Grab a cool refreshing coke…or something a bit stronger. We will also be doing our regular pub night out on the Saturday evening!
The free raffle returns! As everyone seemed to enjoy the hilarity of our previous raffle at J12, we have decided to bring it back again – Complete with prizes so awful good you’ll pay us to take them back! Each participant will receive one free raffle ticket on their desk upon arrival
Welcome to the new look Lanraiders website! We hope that you all enjoy the new layout.
As you may have noticed the reviews etc from the old website are gone. This is due to our decision to streamline the website and focus more on our LAN events, so that it’s easier for you to find the information you need and book for our events.
Please feel free to comment and let us know what you think of the new design
