Minecraft Convention comes to Baldoyle

The second annual Minecraft Convention will take place in Baldoyle Community Hall this coming Saturday, the 14th of November from 10am to 3pm.

There are additions to the event this year with Animatronics and Five Nights at Freddy’s themes.

Breaking and placing blocks is the main element of Minecraft with players building structures to protect themselves against nocturnal monsters and also working together to build large scale, imaginative structures.

The all-ages event will include Minecraft tutoring classes conducted by Andrew Fallon at various times throughout the day.

University College Dublin will be attending the event to showcase some their Animatronics including an Oculus Rift, EV3, Lego robots and drones for people to use.

Other attractions on the day include stalls which will be selling cakes, clothes, shoes, books, wristbands, mugs, key-rings, bags and photos.

Entry costs €2 for children and is free for adults and all money from the event will contribute towards the running of the hall.

More information can be found on the Minecraft Meets Animatronics Facebook page, by emailing info@baldoyleforum.ie, or by phone on 01 8395338.
