A few of the stands can be taken by commercial organisations - a small charge will be made.

Guildford Makerspace

An enterprising community-based grass roots project focused on digital creation, collaboration and skills development is taking shape at Guildford Makerspace, located at Guildford Library already offers people of all ages and from all walks of life the chance to get hands-on experience of building and working with current and future digital technologies through a programme of fun, informative and inspirational ‘maker’ style events. We have big plans for the future, why not see how you can get involved?
