Our free, inclusive and accessible event is returning. Come to our relaunch on Tuesday 20 August at 18:30 to find out about why you should care about online accessibility. The event is at the Nottingham Playwright.

After a few months away, our free Accessibility meetup is returning.

Our meetup is free, light-hearted, and entertaining. With a core aim of promoting online accessibility, and creating an inclusive digital world where anyone, regardless of disability or circumstance, can thrive.

Did you know that 1 in 5 people in the UK have a disability? Yet despite this, in 2018 4 in 10 council websites were inaccessible. That's something we believe ought to change. Everyone has the right to equal online opportunities, regardless of circumstance.

Don’t miss out on an event that boasts passionate speakers with years of experience and promises to be an unmissable evening. Get your free tickets before it’s too late.

On top of free talks and entertainment, we also offer all our guests’ free food and drink, and a chance to network with guests, speakers, and our team.
