Oxford Geek Nights are back! After being postponed for the initial covid outbreak #OGN52 will finally take place on the evening of 16th November 2022 at the Jericho Tavern.

Oxford Geek Night is a regular meet-up for the tech scene in Oxford run by Torchbox.

We have five talks of 15 minutes, a musical interlude, a quiz (probably) and 1-minute micro pitch slots (for pitching jobs, meetups and anything else). Doors will open at 7:00 pm with proceedings kicking off at 7:30 pm. With a number some OGN favourites speaking, free beers courtesy of Perspectum, and the chance to catch up and network with the best of the tech scene in Oxford, you won't want to miss it.

Get involved

We're always looking for speakers. Talks are short, 15 minutes for the main talks, and often 5-minute talks slots too. Short talks suit the format of the evening which is a fun, social meetup. The 5-minute slots are particularly good for people who don't have as much experience in giving talks and want to give it a go.

People share passion projects, experiments, interesting technology, and philosophical ideas. We want to hear what you are doing or thinking about, but please avoid recruitment pitches during the talks (save that for the Pitch slot at the end of the evening). Talks don't have to be deep tech, we like to keep it varied, and even design-orientated talks are welcome. So, if you've got a talk or an idea for a talk, you should get in touch.
