Silicon Dreams Festival

The Silicon Dreams festival celebrates our silicon chip age. If you appreciate all things electronic, then this is the event for you. Modern and Retro, this event will feature a wide range of exhibits including computing, gaming, music, film and so much more…

This will be a family event including computing workshops, retro computing and vintage gaming. It doesn't stop there - we'll also have film-related entertainment, arts activities and - of course - electronic music. On top of all this, there will be all the attractions of our host venue including science, engineering, fashion and toy galleries, a heritage railway and an area for under 5's. There is also the country park nearby. It will be the first of its kind and we think that it will be a very special weekend for everyone.
Raspberry Jam will be running on the Friday and Saturday of the festival - the former aimed towards the education sector itself. The Saturday will feature as part of the main festival and will be more suitable for families, younger family members, hobbyists - in fact just about anyone! If you'd like to know more about the Pi, learning to program, or if you have a family member who is interested then this is for you.
But there's more...
The Silicon Dreams festival is to be joined by one of the Godfathers of British synthesiser music. Martyn Ware, co-founder of The Human League, Heaven 17 and British Electric Foundation will be hosting An Evening With… special event on Saturday 6th July. He will talk about his career as one of the pioneers of British electronic music who helped change the charts forever. Later in the evening he will be joined by special guests Northern Kind and Heaven 17 for some fantastic live performances.

It all takes place at Snibston Discovery Park, Coalville in Leicestershire from the 5th to the 7th of July 2013.
