CANCELLED – East-Anglian Pinball Show (Swavesey) @ The White Horse
Jul 2 – Jul 4 all-day
CANCELLED - East-Anglian Pinball Show (Swavesey) @ The White Horse | Swavesey | England | United Kingdom
The most laid-back pinball show returns to the White Horse Inn in Swavesey, near Cambridge.  Every year there is a good mix of games for regular players to enjoy and to tempt those who may be new to pinball into finding out what pinball is all about.
Every year we raise funds for our chosen charity through donations and with the excellent prize raffle, with the draw held on Sunday afternoon.
The event is also the home of the free-to-enter UK Cup competition and occasionally other rather interesting competitions designed with fun in mind! All are welcome to enter and play for the UK Pinball Cup, and other competitions are suited to all ability levels and are open to all-comers.
