About

Welcome To Geektown

Welcome To Geektown

Geektown was founded in 2006 by David Elliott as a place where he and his friends could post news and stories about the various things they liked… Most of those things would fall under the category of ‘Geeky’, and so Geektown was born!

Over the years the site has grown to cover many areas of geek culture. We wear our geek tshirts with pride, and wanted to create an environment where other people could join and share in the love we have for anything deemed ‘geeky’. Whether they be film geeks, tv geeks, gadget geeks, PC geeks, or just your general all-round geeks, we celebrate it all in Geektown.

Based in the UK we have reporters all over the country and abroad, ready to cover any geeky events as they happen. If you’ve got an interesting story, tv show, movie, or product you thing we’d be interested in featuring on the site, please get in touch.

Pull up a keyboard and take a walk around Geektown. If you see something you like, feel free to leave a comment and start a debate with some like minded Geektowners. Most of all, we’d just like to say thank you for visiting, and welcome to Geektown!
