The weekend of 23rd - 24th April 2016 is the UK Maker Faire, held at the Centre for Life in Newcastle.

There will be a Nottingham Hackspace table you can volunteer at. Unless you are volunteering, you will need to buy a ticket.

Many people choose to go up on Friday and come back on Monday.


There are plenty of hotels around the area.

Here's a Google Map of them.
