Talk: Ginger Beer and Silicon Chips

Tuesday, 12 March, 2019 , 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

Joe McIntyre presents a curious tale of the building in Willis Road that has housed entrepreneurs, mineral water, type- writers, home computers, revolutionary heating systems, unique personal transport and… even more computers.

In its 123 years, it’s been a bottling factory, a furniture storage and distribution centre, a high-tech research centre and the home to computing for a technical college, a polytechnic and a post-1992 university. 

A talk for anybody who’s ever wondered what’s behind the gates of Silicon Alley at 25 Willis Road…

The event takes place at Ross Street Community Centre. Doors open at 7pm and the talk starts at 7:30pm. All are welcome, Ross Street is a fully accessible venue, tea and biscuits are provided afterwards. Admission is with a suggested donation of £3 per person.
