There are no plans to hold a Brighton Mini Maker Faire in 2016!

Can we cope with this? The best event in Brighton’s calendar is taking a break!

Developing Dreams team members have been part of the Brighton Maker Faire organising team running the marketing, PR and social media campaigns, and recruiting speakers for debates and talks.

We hope that you have had as much of a blast at Brighton Mini Maker Faire as we have had over the past few years and hold those fingers crossed that it will happen again.

Every May and October, a vast majority of the 100K visitors to London Comic Con dress up in their favourite comic, game or sci-fi film character. Some Cosplayers do this for living and have a selection of stunning costumes that they slip in and out of. It’s a great festival atmosphere where people who might otherwise be wearing a black suit and tie every weekday, decide to put on their Stormtrooper body armour or turn into Poison Ivy or a giant Foxy for the three day event.
