Chris Jordan had a long involvement with Acorn, all the way through the Beeb and Archimedes era.

He was a member of the BBC Micro design team, Publications Editor at Acornsoft, co-inventor of shadow RAM, co-author of book/disc Creative Sound on the BBC Micro, and designer of the Music 500 and Hybrid Music Systems.

In the guise of Hybrid Technology he was also the publisher of Archimedes Elite, and went on to develop the SNES, Sega and Gameboy versions of Elite.

Chris will be coming along to tell us about some/all of these, and other fascinating bits of Acorn history, and is happy to answer questions afterwards.

What better way could there be to spend a bank holiday evening?

The usual arrangements

Admittance is free and everyone is welcome. A range of hot and cold food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, will be on sale.

The venue is between London Bridge and Borough tube stations, so readily accessible by public transport (both stations are a five minute walk away, through well lit and CCTV’d main streets). It also has ample cycle parking (covered by CCTV) very close by.

If you are arriving by car, the Congestion Charge ends at 6pm and our meeting starts much later. However, please note that parking on double red lines is restricted at all times. On single red or yellow lines it is best to park after 7pm. If you are not familiar with central London parking or driving, please allow extra time, patience, and maps.

If you need any help reaching the venue, or any other information, please contact us by email, via Twitter or by telephone on 07970 211 629.
