Our next event is pencilled in for 1-4pm Saturday 22 September 2018 at the University of Gloucestershire, Park Campus, Cheltenham GL50 2RH (venue details). This date may change, so join our mailing list to hear the official announcement.
Please join our mailing list to be notified when free tickets become available, typically 4-5 weeks before the event.
The venue will be opened 15 minutes before the start time.
If you intend to demonstrate your own project, you can arrive 2 hours earlier to set up. A nearby loading bay is also available. Please email: mailto:email@example.com
Most of our events require you to have a ticket, to control numbers, and also we reserve a number of places for children. Tickets are usually free, with an optional donation. You may need to show your ticket at the event, especially if you book a place on a tutorial; you can show your ticket on paper or on your mobile device.
Children over the age of 6 are welcome; we reserve a number of tickets especially for them. Children under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult. That adult does not need a separate ticket. One adult may be responsible for up to six children, as per childminding regulations.
Your child will need to be able to read and have basic keyboard & mouse skills to attend the tutorials. It’s fine for their parent or guardian to assist them if they need it, but please let the children use the keyboard & mouse as much as possible.
There are no facilities for babies or toddlers on site; for example there is no baby change facility. Sorry.
Bring your own Raspberry Pi!
Please bring along your own Raspberry Pi and any Pi projects you’d like to demonstrate or get help with. If at all possible, please allow other people to tinker with your project, but we appreciate you don’t want delicate things broken.
Please update your Raspberry Pi’s Raspbian software if you intend to bring it to a tutorial workshop.
If you don’t have a Raspberry Pi, don’t worry; there will be several spare for you to play with. But at only £30 , please consider buying a Raspberry Pi (and if you buy using that link, we get a small donation from Amazon).
There is CCTV inside and outside the building. People will be taking photos on their mobile devices, and with Raspberry Pi Cameras. If you don’t want your photo on the internet (or your children’s photos, if they’re coming), this might not be the right event for you.
It’s possible we might even video some of the presentations and host them on a video sharing site or social media.
This is a family-friendly event. Amongst other things, that means no offensive language, no offensive T-shirts, no offensive digital content and no alcohol.
