Geek.Zone is the community for geeks! We come together through our shared interests, so no matter what your hobby or passion is, you are sure to find likeminded people at Geek.Zone. We are not-for-profit, so you know that every penny helps to build the community, not a fat cat.
Geek.Zone provides a safe space where knowledge, passion and curiosity are freely expressed and encouraged. We run events, where individuals can enjoy exciting, new experiences and make great, new friends in a relaxed and welcoming environment.
We are here to fight for the right to be geek.
There is still a stigma against geekery and being smart. We are here to let every geek know that they are not alone, and to encourage everyone to embrace their geek side. We believe that we are better together, so get involved and spread the geek love!
Don't think you are a geek? Come along to an event and discover your inner geek! Remember, "geek" is a compliment!
As a Geek.Zone community, together we;
- Support each other
- Fight to change the negative perception of "geek"

We currently have three Districts;
Each runs their own events, however, all run a Pint Night, which is an easygoing evening in a local pub. This is often a great introduction to the IRL community! Take a look at the calendar to find out which events work well for you.
