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)


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/
