Events

The Berkshire branch runs at least one event per month, except in August when we take a break. We run public events which are open to everyone, and member events for current and potential members of BCS. We also run special events for local organisations. Sometimes we advertise external events that may be of interest to our members. For further details of external organisations see our links page. Some of our events are supported by volunteers.

For full details of each event, and a booking link, click its title. If there is no link, bookings are not open yet, but please save the date.

We also run events for schools in Berkshire and support careers fairs in Berkshire, South Bucks and Surrey. See our Schools page for more information. To know more about or help us with any of our events, including for schools, contact events.berkshire@bcs.org.uk .
