Monday Open Nights

The Hackspace is open every Monday from 7:30 PM. This is a chance to come and have a look around the space. Meet members and see what sort of tools and equipment we have available to members. All welcome. Pop in and say hello.

Monthly Social nights

Social night is the 2nd Tuesday of the month and it can mean only one thing – pub social!
We have returned to our regular social venue The Vic a very short walk along Bancroft from the Hackspace.

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.

We have resumed our regular social events. We meet:

If you are interested in getting involved or finding out more about the space and cant make it to an open evening or just want to contact us 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.
