A Portsmouth based social hack* event!


We're using hack to mean: "interesting / clever / cool thing that someone has made".

Nothing naughty or illegal. ;¬)

Hack Pompey 7

Announcing Hack Pompey 7

Home sweet home. There's no place like it for sure, but why not make it more special with clappers for your lights, self-watering plants, or perhaps a Nerf gun home defense system?

Hack the Home promises to be a day full of innovation for our humble abodes, and we hope that you will join us!

  • Price: Nothing! Hack the Home is FREE to attend!
  • Venue: Portland Building, Portland St, Portsmouth PO1 3AH
  • When: 10:00am - 6:00pm Saturday 13th May 2017
  • Food: Lunch, dinner, drinks and snacks will be provided, but feel free to bring along your own supplies
If you'd like to support Hack Pompey (you lovely kind soul), you may register a ticket with a small donation. Hack Pompey will always remain a not-for-profit event, and any funds raised will solely be used to improve future Hack Pompey events. Eventbrite - Hack Pompey 7: Hack the Home
