02 Apr 2014 - Conference Associates

Hiya All,

 

Develop is one of the main Games Development conferences in the UK, and takes place each July in Brighton: http://www.developconference.com/

 

We are hoping to have quite a presence at this year's event with a number of our Lecturers and recent graduates being in attendance.

 

A possible way for students to in part attend the conference for free, is to become a "Conference Associate".

These are the guys who act as gophers and general helpers for the conference, and can get to see a number of the sessions by being the helpers in the room for them.

 

I have the details of the person to contact about being an Associate, so ping me an e-mail if you are interested and I'll pass on their details.

 

All the best

 

SIMON SCARLE

EGX Rezzed is a UK event dedicated to PC, indie and console gaming.

Get hands-on with next gen consoles, unearth hidden indie gems and enjoy the most anticipated triple A PC games, all under one roof.

EGX Rezzed will also feature presentations from leading game designers, a Minecraft tournament stage, board games and loads more!

 

 

 

Now I've got your attention, we are thinking of arranging a field trip to this event on  Friday 28th March: http://www.egxrezzed.net/

We would definite supply the transport and probably pay the entrance fee for the day (which should be less than Ł12).

My name's Charlotte, and I'm emailing about Festival of the Spoken Nerd, the trio of insatiably sci-curious comedians coming to a theatre near you.

 

The Spoken Nerds are travelling across the UK from January 2014 with their all-new show full of wit and wonder: Full Frontal Nerdity. With rave reviews from nerds and non-nerds alike, it's a fantastic night of entertainment and we're hoping to spread the word far and wide.

 

The closest dates to you are: 6 February at Komedia, Bath and 16 February at Colston Hall, Bristol.

We'd love the venue to be filled with people who appreciate the unique mixture of comedy, science and nerdiness, and we hope you'll join us too. Full details are below, do feel free to cut, paste or forward this email to students, colleagues, friends and family.


There's a full tour schedule with tickets links and facebook events here, and the usual press release blurb below to make it easy to pass on to friends and colleagues. Our good friend Colin Wright has even made a postcode checker so you can find your nearest venue - in full glorious HTML!

 

Please note that the show is only suitable for ages 15+ as it contains some strong language and spreadsheets.

Thanks very much!
