MineVention: An kids’ Minecraft event is taking place in Meath this month

Trine Jensen-Burke

It has been called ‘the ultimate event for Irish Minecraft fans.’

Got some eager little Minecraft players who would love a visit to MineVention?

This October, MineVention will be taken place again, bringing the very best of Minecraft to life with scheduled activities such as Build Battles, Educational Talks on Minecraft, Tournaments, Q&A Sessions, Arts and Crafts, a Costume Contest and On-Stage Challenges.

The event, which is set to take place at the CityNorth Hotel in Gormanstown, Co Meath, will also play host to world-famous YouTubers Tycer, Sqaishey and Tomo, who will be available for FREE Meet and Greet opportunities as well as many other fun activities designed for Minecraft fans of all ages.

MineVention – what is there to do?

Build Battles

The Build Battle area is a highly engaging zone that allows kids the opportunity to get creative and battle it out live on stage with other attendees. Equally as much fun to watch, spectators are never disappointed as they can see the battle played out on the big screen, as each participant is asked to build an item from a chosen theme in a set amount of time.

The console-based battles feature up to 8 players at a time and participants can then demonstrate their creativity live at the event with our MC spending one on one time with the competitors to discuss what they’re building and giving them their chance to shine on stage.

Build Battle are a huge attraction at MineVention and really encourages participants to take the limelight, get involved and take pride in their abilities in front of a live audience! The talent and hard work that is demonstrated in the Build Battle area is always incredible to watch.

Meet Guests

Do your children obsess over their favourite Minecraft YouTubers? Gaming YouTubers have emerged as the new wave of celebrities and with fans of Minecraft following them daily, YouTubers guide their viewers in playing the game and demonstrate the endless possibilities of what you can do in Minecraft.

Since MineVention began in 2014 and we have welcomed some of the biggest names in the YouTubing world such as DanTDM, Sqaishey, BigBStatz, TycerX, False Symmetry, Little Lizard Gaming and many many more!

Our dedicated Meet and Greet areas allow kids to experience that all-important opportunity to meet their heroes, get their signature and have their photo taken with them.

Arts and Crafts

Whether it’s creating a boxhead masterpiece that you’ve purchased from our Merch booth or colouring in our cool colouring sheets with the younger children, our craft activities will have something for all ages.

We provide all the pens, glue and scissors and you take away the end result.

On-stage challenges

Our on-stage content consists of a variety of opportunities to have fun and win prizes – from Dance Offs to Creator Challenges, Q&A Panels and more, these highly engaging Main Stage segments get everybody involved.

Whether you’re up on stage with us or cheering the participants on from the audience, our main stage content is endless fun for everyone. Even the most reserved members of the family will want to join in with everyone on stage and let loose.

Designed to break the ice and get everybody into the spirit of the day the On-Stage Challenges are also a great way to spend more time with their favourite YouTubers, win cool prizes, create incredible memories and of course just have fun!

MineVention is taking place on the 22nd and 23rd of October this year, and tickets for the event can be booked here.
