Silicon Dreams & The Vintage Computer Festival

The Centre For Computing History at Silicon Dreams

This weekend the biggest event in the U.K.'s retro computing calendar will be hosted at the Snibston Discovery Museum in Leicestershire. The Vintage Computer Festival follows 2010's highly successful event with most of the main exhibitors returning. Some of the highlights include:

  • Raspberry Jam - a hands-on workshop for the Raspberry Pi single board computer organised by the Centre for Computing History.
  • The Amiga is well represented at the show with demonstrations of MorphOS 3.2 and the latest AmigaOne X1000.
  • 15+ exhibitors will be displaying a wide range of historic / unusual computers including RISC OS running on the Raspberry Pi.
  • Look out for the Spectranet ethernet board in action. Tweet direct from a ZX Spectrum complete with nixie tube tweetometer!

The event runs from 5th - 7th July. Tickets are £15 for the day, or £20 for the weekend. We'll be there when the gates open at 10am. Is anyone else planning to attend?
