Acorn World 2009 : 12-13 September 2009


Acorn World is an exhibition and gathering at the Cedar Court Hotel – Huddersfield on 12th-13th September 2009 that will celebrate the importance and legacy of this uniquely British company.

Over the course of the weekend, the Emley Suite at Cedar Court will be packed to the rafters with numerous examples of Acorn computers, charting the company’s rise from the less well-known Acorn System series and Acorn Atom; through the various iterations of the BBC Microcomputer and the Electron to the ground-breaking Archimedes and RISC PC range; both of which were developed to take full advantage of Acorn’s now-ubiquitous and phenomenally successful ARM technology.

A number of talks and seminars are planned across both days and the first Acorn-themed talk to be confirmed is a presentation by the RISC OS Open Ltd team.

This event forms part of the Retro Reunited Classic Gaming & Computing convention and weekend tickets (priced £13.00 each inclusive) cover entry to both Acorn World (Emley Suite) and Retro Reunited (Presidential Suite). All proceeds less costs will be donated to the Shelter charity and it is anticipated that tickets will sell out well in advance.
