What Is This?

This is my aim to produce an EventBox for the UK, as it was decided that an EventBox for the EU was unfeasible (due mainly to postage costs and customs restrictions).

This is being organised in collaboration with Paul Mellors.

If you want to see more details about an EventBox, have a look at the main page here

This section includes things that we need, but are not as "extravagant" as the above.

  • Tape & Blutak
  • Power Extension cords (5-way or similar)
  • Ethernet Cables (3-5 preferably)
  • Scissors
  • Notepad
  • Log-Book (to know where the EventBox has been)
  • Pens & Pencils
  • Return Details (UPS/FedEx/ParcelForce Barcode & details?)


We have held some meetings about what to do with the Fedora UK EventBox.

Logs are below:


The box is designed so that, if needs be, it is perfectly safe to send it via UPS or any other Parcel Shipping Company. (To which end a barcode/shipping details will be included for swift return)

However, due to costs, this may not always be the case - Therefore, details of where to return the box to will be included on a slip in the box.
