Kickstart Amiga User Group

We will be attending the Kickstart 03 Amiga User Group BBQ this Saturday! See you there!

Who are Kickstart?

Kickstart is an Amiga user group, formed in December 1997 by Rob Gilbert.

We are a user group for all Amiga users, or those just wanting to know more about the platform. It doesn’t matter if you are an expert with every machine in the range, or just a single computer owner trying to learn more or just having fun with a 500 Mini, everyone is welcome at one of our meets and as members of the group. For everyone looking to learn or needing help with a problem, we’ll have someone who can share their knowledge with you. It’s all part of the fun with the Amiga!

We had our initial meeting in March 1998 and never looked back. With over 70 full members at our height, Kickstart used to meet every last Monday of the month at Brook Hall in Ottershaw, Surrey. The hall is still there (now known as Ottershaw Village Hall) and is still our regular home for Kickstart meets.

After over seven years of group meets and running four of our own successful Amiga shows, Kickstart went on hiatus by the mid 2000s – as did much of the Amiga world.

However, with interest in the platform so strong, Kickstart is back and restarted its regular meetings on Sunday 15th October 2023. A whole programme of meets and activities has followed that already covers all of 2024. Whether you are a “Kickstart Original” coming back, or new to our club, we can’t wait to see you there!
