We have a weekly Open Hack Night every Thursday from 7pm til 10pm (and often later). We encourage anyone who wants to find out more about us to come down to the space, say hello, and see what we’re all about.
We generally advise bringing along a project that you’re working on – we are all very hands-on folk, and having something physical helps us get involved in what you do! If you’re not at the stage of having a project idea that you want to develop, then still come along – there are always people working on interesting projects, and you might even learn some new skills to take home with you.
Under 18-year-olds are welcome, but please understand that this is an adult-oriented environment – with associated dangers – and you should ensure that they are supervised at all times.
Meetups & Social Events
We often work with local community groups to provide a venue for meetups and other events.
We also have informal social events like board games nights, food hacking afternoons and retro gaming evenings that visitors are welcome to come along to.
Brighton Mini Maker Faire
Last but certainly not least, we’re the team behind the hugely popular Brighton Mini Maker Faire.
Taking place every September as part of the Brighton Digital Festival, the Brighton Mini Maker Faire is an interactive festival of creativity and invention. The family-friendly event brings together makers from all over the country to show their projects, share their passion for making, and inspire visitors to have a go at making things themselves.
This year, we’ll be packing out the Brighton Corn Exchange and Dome Foyer Bar on Saturday 7th September with robots, crafters, science, coding, games and toys, metal and woodworking, model-making, costumes, and homebrew electronics. And on Sunday 8th, we’ll be in and around the Foyer Bar running in-depth workshops for anyone who wants to learn more.
