“Last year’s RuneFest was such an incredible experience that we simply had to make RuneFest an annual event. The loyal RuneScape community who attended really helped to make the event a huge success,” commented Mark Gerhard, CEO of Jagex. “For RuneFest 2011 we are planning to do everything on a grander scale, make everything bigger and even more action-packed. Last year’s event really demonstrated what a passionate community we have. With that in mind we have hunted down a larger venue for this year so that even more players will be able to attend! Tickets will sell out fast so my advice to those wanting to attend – get your tickets as soon as they go on sale and join us for a party you will never forget.”

RuneFest 2011 will take place on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th October, at the Old Billingsgate in central London. Each floor will be themed and feature an array of entertainment guaranteed to satisfy even the most ardent RuneScape fan including many of the popular activities from last year’s event, such as the insider sessions, developer meet-and-greet sessions and the community management gaming zone, plus a host of new features for 2011 including an exclusive late night Party.

RuneFest celebrates the entire worldwide RuneScape community; bringing the RuneScape universe to life, including huge themed areas for players to experience real-world RuneScape activities. This year’s event is of particular significance as RuneScape celebrates its tenth anniversary and many of the activities, talks and events will be themed to celebrate the last decade of development of this hugely popular game.
