Coming to Maker Faire? Here are some Frequently Asked Questions … and answers

Where is it?

Corn Exchange, and Dome Foyer Bar, Brighton.

Here’s a map

There are entrances on Church Street and just off New Road, just next to Pavilion gardens. Or just follow the robots.

Best way to get here is on foot, and bear in mind there’s a food market on New Road that day, so there will be no access by car.

The venue is a 20 minute walk from the train station.

When is it?

Saturday 8th September
Doors open at 10am, we’ll be politely nudging you out at 5pm, but don’t worry, there is an after party.

Is there an after-party?

Yes! Full details here.

What is it?

If you haven’t been to Maker Faire before, you’re in for a treat. Check our about page and watch the video from last year. Should give you an idea of what to expect.

How much does it cost to get in?

Short answer: It’s free.

Long answer: Some of the makers running workshops may ask you to pay for materials or kits you use. We would also really appreciate any donations you could make towards next years’ event. We’ll be accepting donations at the information point.

Can I bring my kids?

Absolutely. Kids of all ages love Maker Faire. There are lots of cool things to see for everyone, and workshops suitable for a variety of ages, interests and sizes of hands. And we’ve got loads of educational stuff this year, to show how easy it is to make, from welding to felting, programming to making hot air balloons. Check out our workshops page for more information on the timed workshops (that you need to book in advance).

For those of you with smaller kids, we’ve tried to make more room this year so it’s easier to get around, and we’ll have a buggy park by the Church Street entrance where you can leave your buggy if you wish. Our advice: get here at 10am, before all the people without kids get out of bed.
