Here at Milkshake we are massive fans of old computers and our offices contain a large amount of old computers from the 1970’s, 1980’s and 1990’s all of which work and we frequently use.

To educate different generations or to give todays children an idea of where todays computers and devices evolved from we demonstrate these devices in schools, scout troops and other community clubs. We’ve even demonstrated our computers at Women’s institutes and Senior citizen groups.

Our talks are aimed at both the main stream computers which were pivotal in todays games devices as well as todays business environment. Along with providing information on the old computers we also give demonstrations on certain machines as well as explaining the advances in between each of the machines we demonstrate.

Our talks are aimed at smaller groups of people so we can give a more hands on approach to our talks and demonstrations.

Our talks provide:

  • Brief history about how technologies evolved to todays computers
  • Demonstrations of Spectrum, Commodore, Amstrad and BBC computers
  • Loading demonstrations
  • Hard drive technology demonstrations
  • Vintage gaming
  • And much more

We can tailor talks to your curriculum or group schedules and these talks can be in 1, 2 or 3 hour lengths.

We can also offer equipment hire to schools and clubs*

If you wish to find out more then we offer this service within a 50 mile radius of Macclesfield and can offer a range of old computers to demonstrate. Please call 01625 266883 to find out more about our retro computer talks.
