Milton Keynes Geek Night

MK Geek Night is a free quarterly event for the creative industries, run for the by my friend Richard Wiggins and I for the last six years.

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


In 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.
