Organising group events can be stressful. From pinning down a date that everyone can make, to planning activities, what food to order, and finding the perfect space, it can all be a bit much! That’s why we’ve launched our Private Workshops., to take the stress out of event planning.

We’ll handle all the logistics for your next event including technical set-ups, workshop activities, lunch and restaurant bookings, name badges, hot and cold drinks, snacks and fabulous cakes, and everything else you need for a successful and enjoyable event. Have a browse of some of the workshops you can book with us below before completing the contact form with some details, and we’ll get right back to you! Events can be delivered to groups of up to 28 people and can also be tailored to fit you and your needs, so if there’s an activity you’re keen to run that isn’t on the list then just let us know and we’ll see what we can do!

The best part is that any profits from these are reinvested back into our social and environmental projects, delivering essential sustainable skills to members of our local communities, helping those in need out of digital poverty, and saving electronics from going to landfill.
