Hackspace Election Party

How does staying up all night with fellow political nerds, watching the general election results in real time sound?

Terrifying? Boring? Exciting?

If it is exciting, then you're going to be delighted!

Starting around 8pm or thereabouts, we'll be eating, drinking, and maybe crying at the state of the nation on Thursday, 7th May.

We're still working out the details, but if you'd like to join us, let us know on the Google Group.

Don't Forget!

Remember these important dates at your local hackspace!
