What is Geek.Zone?
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 like-minded people at Geek.Zone. We are not-for-profit too, so you know that every penny helps to build the community, not a fat cat.
What does Geek.Zone do?
We help geeks to meet geeks! Pre-2020 we would hold physical events around Coventry, Chelmsford and London so that everyone can meet with friends old and new. These events would include movie nights, board games, console gaming, PC gaming, craft and more. Currently, we are doing all our events on Discord.
