It's just down the road from Temple Meads station, so jump on a train and come have some awesome cider (some of which using the apples from Rory's farm!)

Small update! Bristol Hackspace has confirmed we can do a session there!

So 10.00-13.30 we'll be in the hackspace for any soldering, gluing, tinkering you may need as well as any questions or issues we can try to help with get your bots up and running! We used to call these 'Ant Clinics'

The hackspace recently moved to St Philips - it's just a few minutes walk from the Cider Box. If you're driving we recommend to park near Cider Box as there's more free street parking that end. But we'd *really* recommend coming by train/bus if possible as all of this is a short walk from Bristol Temple Meads and you can enjoy more cider! 🙂
