We are a group of hackers, geeks and possibly normal people who get their kicks from computing with an old-fashioned twist. We welcome anyone who enjoys:

  • tinkering with Vintage computers and their peripherals
  • running retro software
  • classic computer emulators
  • building reproductions or replicas of classic systems

We cover all-sorts: from computing’s origins to the 1990s and from the simplest Micro to largest Mainframe.

Our meetings provide a forum where fellow enthusiasts can exchange information and ideas on hardware and software in an informal setting.

This month

An open evening about Ferranti Computers and the possibility of restoring Argus 100 and 200 Computers such as used at Jodrell Bank and ICI Fleetwood for pioneering automation.
