HackTheMidlands is a 24-hour, inclusive "hackathon" being hosted in Birmingham on the 1st-2nd October 2016 right here at Millennium Point.

Over the 24 hours, people aged 14+ of all skill levels will come together to share ideas, and create new and awesome projects! Don't worry, you don't have to be a professional or a student, just be lovely, passionate and interested in technology.

Unsure what a hackathon is? Major League Hacking has a great explanation here!
