The ceremony will take place on 7 April 2016
London, 27 October 2015: The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has announced that tickets for the British Academy Games Awards in 2016 are now on sale. Hosted once more at Tobacco Dock in east London’s Docklands, the ceremony will take place on Thursday 7 April 2016.
Shining a spotlight on the very best games of the past year and the talented individuals behind them, the British Academy Games Awards is BAFTA’s annual celebration of excellence and remains the premier event in the UK games industry calendar, attracting leading talent from around the world.
Next year’s Awards will return with a seated dinner for guests, along with the Champagne Taittinger reception, ceremony and after-party. The reintroduction of the seated dinner, which will be more formal than in recent years, comes as a result of close consultation with the industry.
Harvey Elliott, Chair BAFTA Games Committee, said: “The British Academy Games Awards is the must-attend event for the games industry to celebrate the very best in digital entertainment. The Awards is already the leading event of its kind in the UK, and with an extended format that includes pre-Awards networking, a post-Awards sit-down dinner, and an after party that will go on into the night, we’re gearing up for a phenomenal celebration of creativity in 2016.”
Guests attending BAFTA’s awards ceremonies support the organisation’s charitable work, including scholarships and mentoring schemes, the flagship BAFTA Young Game Designers initiative and other learning programmes that identify, support and nurture new talent in this thriving sector.
Tables for 10-12 guests are available to the industry with a limited number available at a reduced rate to BAFTA members. All ticket requests should be made via tickets.bafta.org with successful applicants being notified by email; BAFTA members will be allocated tickets via ballot.
