Do I need a response (ticket number or anything) before turning up? I emailed to express an interest in coming, but am unsure if I should be expecting an email back.
No ticket numbers or such. If you've emailed him with Howduino in the subject line you should get a reply but it took them a couple or three days to reply to my message.

Oh if I'd known about this earlier I would have attended

I thought it'd been mentioned before, but I couldn't find it when I googled.

I posted the announcement back in May  smiley-wink

cowjam, email Ian at Centre of Life so he can keep track of numbers coming etc.

Maker faire looked like great fun. I just wish the organisers would also run some Maker Faires in the South of England as getting to Newcastle from Kent isn't easy for a day out.

Yes but it makes a change from everything happening in London.
With the success of Maker Faire @ Newcastle I'm sure they will have faires in other cities around the UK and Europe the same as the do in the US.

I agree with Mike is was nice to have a something that wasn't London based for a change.

I thought the cover charge was reasonable. We got a weekend pass (2 adults & 2 children) for £15.

I thought it was a great event with a well balanced emphasis on family fun style activities. My kids totally enjoyed the weekend, they loved the opportunity to build something for themselves.

The time seam to pass so quickly I wish it had lasted longer and I had more time to talk "shop". But it was great to meet Anachrocomputer and see his UK101 working, the guys from the Parallax forums and many other exhibitors who I managed to chat with.

I must of missed Grumpy_Mike's stand. Where were was your stand Mike?

@sctv, thanks for posting the list of events.

I see there's a Dorkbot (Newcastle) meeting this Wednesday 20/1 at the Centre for Life in the Lifelab Welcome Room from 7.30 to 9pm.

We haven't even started on a hackerspaces... but like the idea.
I would sign up to hackerspace in Newcastle if one was started, it reminds me of the old computer meet ups from the early 80's at Newcastle's Science Museum 8-). In fact I'm pretty sure the Maker Faire takes place in the same room.

Anachrocomputer, I saw a Compukit UK101 at lasts years Maker Faire, was that yours?
Yes, that was my one! In fact, I took three UK101 machines along last year, for the 30th anniversary.
Cool  8-)

Are you bringing them again this year?

They look great projects. I'm looking forward to seeing them at the Faire. I especially liked the Arduinocaster  smiley
