What we're about

Welcome to the Geeks & Nerds society!

The Geeks & Nerds society was founded so that all the Geeks and Nerds of Leicester (and Midlands) could come together and share their love of all things geeky and nerdy! To hang out, have fun, discuss, eat, drink, quiz, play, have banter and most of all make new FRIENDS!

Meet ups you can look forward to in the future:

Board gaming, Escape reality, Zombie experience, National Space Centre, theme parks, ghost hunts, camping, walks, outdoor pursuits, London Science Museum, local museums, gigs/concerts, Comic Con, Disco Bowling, Pool, bowling, play games at the Retro Computer Museum, Bingo, meet up for drinks and food, test our intellectual capabilities with quizzes/trivia, laugh at comedy shows, blast each other at Laser tag, LAARPING. Pokemon Go, Picnics, Paint Ball, watch shows at the theatre, discuss fictional characters/worlds, watch movies at the cinema, read books together, shop at Forbidden Planet, play board games at Quest and much, much more!

So, do you like the sound of all that? Star Captains, Time Lords, Jedi's, Wizards, Cyborgs, and Hobbits!

Join us and then we can all rule the galaxy together (as father... oops wrong galaxy)

Message from founder:

"It isn't always easy to find people who share the same passions, interests and hobbies, is it? Especially, if you're a Geek or Nerd. The Leicester Geeks and Nerds society aims to change that. My intention with the group is to bring Geeks and Nerds from all over Leicester (and the Midlands) together, so that we can share our passions, interests and hobbies with one another, without feeling ashamed, embarrassed, misunderstood or an outcast. The group is especially suited (but not limited to) the socially awkward, the nerds, the geeks, the introverts, the socially anxious. We are a community. We are a Sisterhood and a Brotherhood. A Sibling-hood. We are an extended family. We are the Leicester Geeks & Nerds Society."

Escape Reality - Jungala

Escape Reality

Each month we are going to try out a new Escape Reality game. Escape Reality games require teamwork, problem solving and critical thinking skills. The games are fun, challenging and incredibly immersive. Some even say... SCARYYYY!!! OOOOHHHH :p Our first game will be Jungala! "You have discovered an old board game in your attic and once opened you are engulfed by a vortex and transported into an alternative realm. After only seeing a glimpse of the terrible world inside you are thrown back into reality. Vowing never to approach the game again you attempt to leave but the door has been locked trapping you in. Glancing over to the game you see the words “The dice have been rolled.” You have no choice but to complete the game or be trapped inside the other realm for eternity. You only have sixty minutes to complete the game!" https://www.escapereality.com/escape-rooms-uk/leicester/ Players 2 - 6 Price: £16 - £22 per player (Book online) Disclaimer: Date is a placeholder, as the date subject to change.
