GeekOut Bristol Meet – July 14th: Cyber-Punked
Let me take you to a future filled with authoritarian governments and damaged lands. Consider this, you’ve always thought you were the last rebel of your kind, but it turns out you weren’t. A bunch of you have donned your most practical gear and set out to meet up as the last remaining bunch of Cyberpunks… Of Bristol!
FOODIE PRE-MEET TBC (Poll Pending):
As ever, we love a good nomming session before GeekOut Bristol Meet – We’ll be setting up our Pre-Meetup food poll on Facebook today (Sunday 24th), so watch this space.

MAIN EVENT: 14:00-Midnight (Old Market Tavern)
Hey, turn that stun gun off, we’re here for a civilised meetup with the best of you surviving Cyberpunks! Don’t forget we’ve still got an agenda to keep up with, so come and check us out! There’ll even be prizes later in the night.
Food & drink can NOT be brought in with you to the Old Market Tavern. If you are caught with food and drink on the premises, you will be asked to leave until you’ve disposed of your food or drink.
There will be a food menu at Old Market Tavern in the evening! The food is very cheap and it’s absolutely delicious! Food is usually available from 6pm.
