Vintage Computer Festival GB

  

The Vintage Computer Festival is an international event to celebrate the history of computing.

First held in the US in 1997, the festivals now take place all over America and Europe.

 

In 2010, Bletchley Park and the National Museum of Computing hosted Britain's first-ever VCF. Organised by Simon Hewitt and backed by a team of volunteers, the inaugural festival was a huge success. The weekend-long event was accompanied by a talk, Q&A and concert by eighties synth legends OMD.

 

Three years on, many of the core team who helped organise he original VCF-GB reunited for a second event to be hosted by Snibston Discovery Museum in Leicestershire. This ran alongside Silicon Dreams 2013.
