MK Geek Night

In 2012 my friend Richard Wiggins and I started Milton Keynes Geek Night – a free quarterly event for the creative industries.

In addition to being a networking and social event we’ve brought some of the best speakers in our industries to the events creating a mini-conference in an evening.


In January 2014 we ran our first full day conference: the Milton Keynes Geek Night All Dayer. The event was a huge success with incredible feedback from the attendees, speakers and sponsors.
