Calendar of 'core' events for StarDot members

Postby Arcadian » Thu Nov 27, 2014 3:18 am

Upcoming 'Core' Events for StarDot members:

This is intended to be a summary of events where you can expect:

  • to see Acorn-related exhibits/attractions, as well as ...
  • meet a number of fellow *. forum members plus other Acorn enthusiasts.

Please leave a post in the thread - or PM me - if you have any input/suggestions about events that you think belong in this thread.

There are of course many other classic computing and retro gaming events taking place in the UK/Europe - and members are invited to post details of these events directly to the Events Category if it is felt that they will be relevant to fans of Acorn computers/games.

Great to have so many meetups planned! I wish I could attend all of them! I'll go for the Homebrew coding and London ROUGOL ones for sure; will have to see for anything else.

Have updated the first post to remove last weekend's ABug in Halifax and to note that the ABug Cambridge meet is now fully booked.

As a heads up, the next Northern meet is pencilled in for 18-20 November (Bolton) and an East Midlands meet in Leicester is due to debut on 27-29 January 2017, but please wait for the respective organisers (sydney and sixxdogg_uk) to confirm these events/dates.
