Budapest Pinball Museum organises its arcade game exhibition in Budapest, called Arcadia for the 5th time in a row between the 25th and 27th of September, 2020. This year the event will feature more than 300 pinballs, video cabinets and other arcade machines, out of which 50 are ones never previously displayed at Arcadia Exhibitions.
This year’s event holds several surprises for the visitors. For instance, on Saturday and Sunday, the event’s new venue, The Budapest Railway Museum’s services (railway, draisine, steam locomotive) will be available free of charge for all Arcadia visitors.
BBC comedy ‘You Rang M’Lord?’ from the 90’s is still widely popular in Hungary.
Although pinballs might not be closely associated with this 4 seasons TV show about the late 20’s, according to the organisers, ‘You Rang M’Lord?’ was as integral part of growing up in Hungary in the last few decades as were pinballs. And the numbers back it up: only in a few days following the announcement, some 2300 users RSVP’d positively on the event’s FB page.
The following 5 ‘M’Lord’ actors had already agreed to come:
- Jeffrey Holland – James Twelvetrees
- Michael Knowles – The Honourable Teddy Meldrum
- Catherine Rabett – Cissy Meldrum
- Susie Brann – Poppy Meldrum
- Amanda Bellamy – Rose
Tickets to the fan meeting (to be held on Friday and Saturday) will be sold on a first come first served basis, for the first 800 persons buying Arcadia tickets.
Presale will most probably start in June.
