Liverpool MakeFest

A Festival like no other for Liverpool!

Liverpool MakeFest is a FREE family friendly one day festival for all ages celebrating all things 'makey' in the north-west, showcasing things people have made, projects people are working on, inventions, gadgets and hands-on activities including, coding, hacking workshops and demonstrations.

It's being held in Liverpool Central Library on Saturday 27th June from 9am-5pm and is entirely FREE to everyone! Early bird TICKETS are on Eventbrite here...

It's a place to see how science, technology, engineering, arts and crafts are shaping our world... a place to get you thinking and learning about cool stuff you could make yourself!

As a result of everyone’s hard work and true maker spirit we have over 100 makers attending 60 stalls / activities / workshops / demos with everything from IoT to daleks, from textiles to robots, from minecraft to woodcraft… and a whole lot in between :) You can check out the full list of 'Who's Coming To Makefest' and what's going on our website, but here's a flavour...
