Know Your Tenancy Rights

Tenancy rights are a touchy subject, with millions of homes across the UK filled with renters. While some landlords are reasonable with those who live in their properties, the number of complaints against landlords increased 27% over the last three years.

The exhibition pays tribute to 40 years of gaming with 160 consoles from the iconic Atari or Super Nintendo to the most recent Wii U and XBox One. The consoles are gathered in one big hall, lightly decorated with wall canvases associated with geek culture and brightened up by a snack bar, some sofas (for those not playing) and a boutique at the exit. It might seem crowded, but there ar
