The Robot Arena, set in the midst of the UK’s largest gaming festival, will host the country’s largest championship as 50 teams battle it out to take home the coveted Robot ArenaChampionship title. The hotly contested tournament will feature fan favourites used to competing in TV shows both here in the UK & in America.
In between matches, as the teams make vital repairs to their lethal machines, fans will be treated to some electrifying demonstrations as robots brutally destroy TVs, PCs and laptops in the bullet proof arena. Also in the breaks, the Arrive and Drive feature will allow audience members to pit their skills against each other in high-octane 90-second battles. There won’t be a dull moment for robotics enthusiasts at Insomnia61, as they will also be able to meet their favourite builders and robots in the Pit Area. With the opportunity to get autographs and photos with their favourite stars from the small screen, this is a rare chance for fans to see the intricate designs and mechanics of their favourite machines up close.
Away from the action in the arena, fans can see some of the UK’s most iconic robots on display in the Exhibition Area. Classics including the BBC’s Robot Wars house robots, Sir Killalot, Matilda, Dead Metal and Shunt will be on show, along with a selection of other famous automatons from around the world, including Mack, the robotic dog from ReCore and the guns from Sunset Overdrive.
The Robot Arena is located in our Exhibition Hall. Tickets start at just £25.
