HORIZONS: A Celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the ZX Spectrum

ZX Spectrum

So many of today’s creative, technical, and cultural talent are, in one way or another, indebted to the little machine that plugged into the living room telly.

We’re celebrating the Spectrum’s anniversary in HORIZONS, at the BFI: a rich blend of fun, memories, and future-gazing. Play some of your favourite games (you’re welcome to bring your Kempston interface and Quickshot II).

We’ll have a variety of speakers and performers over the two days, practical experiments in programming and an extra special look to the future, with the new RASPBERRY PI on-hand... will this create a new generation of programmers?

Speakers and performers over the two days, include:

  • Dylan Smith: demonstrating the amazing Spectrum Twitter client
  • Matt Westcott: and his Chiptune music
  • Matthew C. Applegate (Pixelh8): on how the Spectrum gave birth to a generation of programmers
  • Leila Johnston: Practical experiments in Basic programming
  • MJ Hibbett: performing Hey Hey 16k
