Spectrum 35 - 28 October 2017
Please note that we have closed online bookings for this event. General visitors on the day are welcome, but be advised that there will be lots of Spectrum fans in the building! Our classroom area will be given over to talks and we expect the Centre to be very busy all day.
Our car park is also expected to be very busy. Additional parking is available at other units on the Coldham's Road industrial estate (where businesses are closed - please be mindful of their space) and at the car parks of the Beehive Centre and Cambridge Retail Park, 10 minutes walk away from CCH.
2017 sees the 35th Anniversary of the release of the ZX Spectrum. We are the chosen venue to celebrate this iconic machine at an event led by the organisers of 2012's hugely successful Spectrum 30.
There will be interesting talks, exhibitions, and the ZX Fair with new and old hard and software to buy.
