30 Years of the ZX Spectrum - A Celebration!

Over the weekend of the 8th and 9th of September Spectrum fans from across the globe came together at the Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, to celebrate 30 years of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

As an owner of various Spectrums since 1982 I was keen to go, but felt that I couldn't really justify the travel time and costs getting to and from deepest darkest Cambridge. With many coming from other countries, I suppose I don't have much of an excuse, but there you go.

Thankfully, a number of those who did attend have filmed and written about their experiences, giving you the chance to see and read about what you missed.

The Centre For Computing History have put together a short write-up, along with various YouTube clips and a selection of photos they took on the day. You can find the article by pointing your browser HERE.

Andrew Edney of the Connected Digital World web site has written a short review, and uploaded a mass of lovely photos. You can find those HERE.

If it's just photos you're after, then you'll want to check out the snaps uploaded by World of Spectrum forumite schombi. There's an absolute stack of them, and you can find them HERE.

Happy birthday ZX Spectrum. Here's to the next 30!
