Free digital events for all to enjoy in Stockport
To celebrate the launch of our new website and online services and to encourage residents who aren’t using digital yet, we are announcing ‘DigiFeb’.
DigiFeb is a series of events and roadshows offering fun digital activities and learning opportunities across the borough.
On Saturday 18th February we will be hosting Stockport’s first DigiFest from 10:30am to 3pm at Central Library in Stockport. We’ve teamed up with Madlab for lots of fun family activities, including free coding lessons, tech workshops for all ages such as creating electronic badges with LED lights, 3D printing, Minecraft coding, gamecraft and much more.
Visitors will also be able to learn more about getting online, staying safe online and the new features of the council’s online services. If you’re not sure how to use your computer, tablet or smartphone bring it along to our Digi Drop-in and we will help you work it out.
