The developer is holding a number of other events around Europe too - in Berlin, Warsaw, Paris, Stockholm and Moscow. Further afield, it's planning similar shindigs across the US, in South Korea, Thailand, Singapore. See the game's official site for details of what's happening and where.
Other stores in the UK will be opening late on the 14th to sell the game in time for 00.01am on 15th May, when the game's servers are turned on, though a full list hasn't been finalised.
