Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month. Most meetings feature a guest speaker, demonstrating the latest hardware or software, giving tutorials of software both new and old, or simply to kick off discussions on the current hot topic. Entrance is free, so why not come along and say hello?

RISC OS 35th birthday celebrations - Liam Proven + special guests

This month is the 35th anniversary of the release of the Archimedes, and hence RISC OS (Arthur), so we will be having a birthday celebration :-)

Our host for the evening will be journalist Liam Proven who will be chatting with some special guests from the original RISC OS development team to look back at those exciting times and how things have evolved in the many years since then.

Update: The special guests from the RISC OS development team will include Paul Fellows, Stuart Swales, Richard Manby, and Tim Dobson. Others may join us if their schedules allow, and there are even rumours that Sophie Wilson might drop in...
