We aim to be a family friendly event so we don’t have a formal age limit, however if you are under 16, you are required to provide a completed and signed Parental Consent Form on arrival to the event. Children aged under 16 must attend with an older friend or relative.
If you are a parent sending your child, please ensure that they have everything they need for the event, including money for food and their PC with all of its associated peripherals (if they are participating in the event).
We are unable to provide these items or provide direct supervision of your child during the event.
What is your event cancellation policy?
If the event cannot be held, then you will receive a full refund.
This is unless we receive lots of cancellations, in which case only those who did not cancel will receive the full refund.
What is your ticket cancellation policy?
If you are unable to attend the event, please contact us as soon as possible.
If your notification is received over 28 days prior to the start of the event, your payment will be refunded subject to a £5 administration fee per ticket. Notifications received within 28 days of the event will not be refunded unless the event is full and your place can be sold to the next person on the waiting list, in which case the administration fee will still apply.

No, there is only really sufficient room and power for one monitor per person. You share a ~6ft desk with another participant, so please be considerate with monitor sizes and other equipment on your desk.
Can I bring a Console / TV / VR?
Yes! But please arrange it with the organiser first so we don’t bring excess equipment.

Do you have PCs available to hire?
NoxLAN is an entirely BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) event, we do not have any PCs available to hire. You will need to bring your normal playing setup with you including all cables, monitor, mouse, keyboard, headset etc.
What do I need for the LAN?
Remember, you are responsible for your own equipment. Label your stuff, it makes it easier to return items to their owners if we know who they belong to.
Please ensure you wash beforehand, and maintain an acceptable level of cleanliness! A room of smelly males marinating in their own sweat isn’t the nicest atmosphere to breathe.

What games will be played?
In order to get the most fun out of a LAN, it is necessary to do a little pre-planning! Whilst participants are free to bring and play whatever games they want, having a common list of games will enable us to get straight into gaming rather than the fuss of downloading, installing and troubleshooting games on the day. The games are split into two main categories:
These are outlined in each event’s timetable. Planned games played are split into two subcategories:
BIG games can support the whole LAN party being in the same match, many of which are free or are often on sale. They also have support for dedicated LAN-only servers to minimise lag and ping issues.
Tournament games are generally run using a knock-out, league, or round robin system and played on the bigger screens for spectator involvement. Participants generally don’t need to worry about owning these games.
Whilst the event’s timetabled games are the priority, supported games are other games we play in the free time between planned games and generally have offline installers and dedicated servers at the LAN.
Counter Strike Source / Global Offensive
Left 4 Dead 2
Team Fortress 2
Unreal Tournament GOTY / 2004
What software will I need?
These are various tools which should be downloaded and installed prior to arriving (although there will be an FTP server with these if you aren’t able to get them downloaded for whatever reason).
Everybody at the event will be given a wristband to wear. Anyone without a wristband will not be allowed in to the venue. Everyone is responsible for security, so don’t be afraid to challenge someone without a wristband.
Is my equipment insured?
Insurance is not provided for your equipment, you are advised to make your own insurance arrangements. Some home contents providers will extend policies to cover you at such events. Public Liability insurance is provided, but this is for people not equipment.
Who is responsible for my equipment at the LAN?
You are – NoxLAN does not take any responsibility for your equipment at any time during the event. You are strongly advised to take security measures such as locking your equipment to the table and not leaving small valuable items around.
