Acorn World Exhibition - 13-14 May 2017

Acorn World Exhibition - 13-14 May 2017

Description :

Acorn was a British company that was a key player in the home computer revolution of the early 80s.  Best known for its BBC Micro, the number one schools computer of that era,  Acorn was highly innovative, often creating remarkable technology with very few people and not much money.

This exhibition, run in collaboration with the UK's Acorn enthusiast community, celebrates and explores the history of this once-mighty Cambridge based computer firm: a rollercoaster ride of boom to bust, creative brilliance and hard work that went on to leave a legacy that's imprinted in British industry and academia.

There will be many vintage computers on display as well as items sure to bring back memories of Acorn's heyday: magazines, turtles, Granny's Garden and more!  The history will be accompanied by a look at today's Acorn community, with members showing off their latest Acorn-related projects and retro computer trickery.

This weekend exhibition will run from 13-14 May 2017.  Admission is included as part of a standard ticket to the Centre.

Stay tuned for more details!
