Hello Team LEGup!

***News Just In - MediaTaylor ( are kindly sponsoring our drinks for the second year running****

Three years and 900 members: LEGup has lots of celebrate and we hope you can come and join us at our third birthday party as part of the events series in the Emerge Venture Labs ( calendar (thanks for inviting us, chaps!)

We've picked a hitherto unexplored theme in games and education for our party this year: cats! Were you unaware of the strong link between cats, games and education? Well allow us to enlighten you:

Jo Twist, CEO of UKIE (, will be taking a break from the serious business of representing the UK games industry to tell us about her love of both cats and games.

Ben Whately, COO of Memrise (, will be telling us how cats help people learn languages using Memrise's unique Cat Spanish app, as well as introducing us to his new initiative, CatAcademy.

Rob Davis from Playniac ( will be leading us all in a game of Cat on Yer Head: a game about making better games. Come prepared to catch mice!

We'll also be catching up with various members of the #LEGup community, new and old, who will share their stories about how things have developed over the past three years. If you have a story you'd like to share at the party, let us know!

Oh, and if you'd like to sponsor our drinks or food, let us know too!

We can't wait to see you!

Purrsten and Miowtha!
