Anyone interested in getting a career in videogames, take note - the London Game Career Fair kicks off tomorrow, and over the next two days will be providing people dreaming of making games for a living rather than just playing them for fun with a chance to meet top employers and recruitment experts, and to hear presentations and put questions to speakers from many different parts of the industry.

The event is free, and it's open to anyone with an interest in working in games - it should be especially relevant to students, school leavers, and professionals from other industries who are thinking of making the leap over into the games industry, and either want to meet with employers to hand over CVs in person, or simply want to find out what kind of university courses or professional training they should be looking for.

The whole thing takes place in the Cafe Royal on Regent Street, right next to Piccadilly Circus - here's a handy map - so Piccadilly Circus tube is the easiest place to get off, and it's on plenty of bus routes too. It's open from 11am through to 7pm on both Tuesday and Wednesday, and many of the topics of the sessions and presentations are repeated on both days (all the exhibitors will be there on both days, too), so there's no need to come along for two days unless there are some specific speeches you really want to catch.

Although pre-registration for the event is closed, you can still come along - you just need to register on the door, and it's still absolutely free to get in! For more information, including the exhibitor list visit the London Game Career Fair website - or visit the timetable of all the sessions which will be taking place.
