Digital Catapult Centre Brighton events for #BDF16

September is an exciting time for a Digital Catapult Centre based in Brighton. As the summer comes to a hot end, pockets of exciting digital activity pops up in all the likely (and unlikely!) places throughout the city.

The Brighton Digital Festival is one of our busiest and favourite festivals, with close to 160 digitally infused events set to take place over the month.

On top of looking forward to exploring some of the amazing sights and activities in the BDF schedule, Wired Sussex in partnership with the Digital Catapult Centre Brighton have their own fantastic event line up.

From Data Visualisation to Virtual Reality, we hope we have something for everyone. Have a look what we are hosting as part of the festival, we would love to see you there!
