Our friends at the wonderful Retro Computer Museum in Leicester are coming out of their shell next month for another fun for all the family foray to the Snibston Discovery Museum in Ashby Road, Coalville.

And the weekend of Saturday and Sunday 20-21 June 2015 will see a fantastic hands-on opportunity to discover and play on a range of historic home computers and consoles from the last 35 years, including machines from:

Acorn, Sony, Amstrad, Atari, Commodore, Ninetndo, Sega, Sinclair, Dragon, Apple – and of course some other, rarer kit!
