Maker Faire UK 2011 is on the 12th and 13th of March 2011 in Newcastle.

We'll be heading up on the Friday night and going on a Hackspace pub crawl with all the other Hackspaces.

Who's going?

What are we doing?

We will be running the hack area, where everyone can sit and tinker/hack. We shall have to take tools & equipment for people to use.

Individual presentations

Some members have applied to individually present:

  • The Battenberg (An autonomous airship) - Russ/Jonty
  • A steam-powered turing machine - JimM (sadly, unlikely to be actually steam-powered unless the venue permits it)

Transport

Train is the quickest way, from King's Cross straight to Newcastle. Some of us may be bringing more equipment, so may need to hire a van or car.

  • JimM will likely be hiring an estate car, but setting off from Cambridge rather than London.
  • Spike will be driving up from Weybridge in Surrey. I'll probably be picking up Rain Ashford (@rainycat) (and her dress-maker's dummy, Delia) from Camdenish/
