London's Furry Arcade Party

Hey everyone, the furry arcade party is about to get started!

Barkade is a unique event celebrating gaming and creativity with the furry community, held in association with Bonus Stage, Playnation Games, and the Heart of Gaming, London's Largest Arcade.

Our venue is incredibly spacious, fully air conditioned, and has disabled access to the arcade. We're only 20 minutes away by train from Central London (short walk from East and West Croydon).
