A free & interactive exhibition celebrating 30 years of the Web, at Grand Arcade, Cambridge, 26th July - 3rd September 2021, 10am-5pm.

We are sharing the space with Raspberry Pi, who will be running workshops on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Take a look at their workshops here.


Media obsolescence, failing hardware and the transient nature of websites mean the early years of the web are in danger of disappearing entirely. Catch it while you can!

    • Browse the very first website from 1991
    • Search the web on Archie, the first search engine
    • Enjoy the very first web comic
    • Order a pizza on the first transactional website
    • See the first webcam site
    • See a recreation of the Trojan Room Coffee Cam
