Monday Open Nights are BACK!

With the removal of Corona Virus Restrictions by the Government Hitchin Hackspace are now able to restart our regular Monday Open evenings. Our first since 2020 will be Monday 28th Feb from 7:30 PM

March Social is On AND it is our 10th Birthday!!!!!!

It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month on Tuesday 8th March which can mean only one thing – pub social!
We will also be returning to our regular social venue

  • The Victoria, Hitchin
  • There are plenty of seats outside, and some heaters to make things a bit more comfortable. For anyone driving over, there’s usually space to park on Ickleford Road. If there isn’t, there is a large car park is a short stroll away by the Hackspace .
    Time: Members will be aiming for ~8-8:30, but folk are welcome to meet earlier.

    What is the Hackspace about?

    If you’re not used to it, don’t be put off by the word Hack – as far as we’re concerned, Hacking is creating, improving, solving problems and learning new, (often pointless, occasionally quite useful, always fun) skills. This sort of hacking doesn’t involve stealing Pentagon secrets (Matthew Broderick has a lot to answer for!), or stealing credit card details.

    So far, we’ve done fun stuff like building bat detectors, Lego vehicles you drive with your iPad, a 3 foot balancing robot and our finest creation bighak.

    So that’s us – if you’re interested in getting involved with any of the projects that we’ve got on, if you’ve got an idea for a killer project that you’d like to share, or even if you want to come along and try your hand at something new, why not get in touch.

    Now Covid Regulations have been lifted we are able to resume our regular social events. We meet:

    Unfortunately, at the moment, we have had to suspend our open evenings and social evenings, We hope to be able to restart them in the not too distant future.

    If you are interested in getting involved or finding out more about the space then please do

    and we can arrange a visit to the space to show you round.

    Make. Craft. Invent. Learn.

    We also have a Slack channel which is available to members.
