Social Events

We have two social evenings 7pm onward on Friday and Saturday at DINA and the Bay Horse Inn respectively.

For Friday's evening at DINA there will be a paid bar and no food provided, but you are welcome to bring your own food in to eat. There is equipment to show films and we may have a jam session.

For Saturday we will be going to the Bay Horse Inn in Pitsmoor (aka Burngreave) where there will be pie and peas provided, cheap beer, and plenty of chance to socialise and discuss the day's workshops and talks.


We are asking for a contribution of £20 to cover our costs.


There will be catering so we are keen to know of numbers in advance. Note: we need to keep an eye on numbers for the purpose of making sure we have enough catering and space for us, so if you're intending to come, please email | sheffield2023@hacktionlab.org or simply add yourself to the signup sheet password: sheffield
