I'll survey some results (both old and new) related to the geometry of moduli spaces of irregular connections on curves. If time permits this will include: 1) new nonlinear geometric braid group actions, 2) new complete hyperkahler manifolds (including some gravitational instantons) [in work with O. Biquard], and 3) new ways to glue Riemann surfaces together to obtain (symplectic) generalisations of the complex character varieties of surface groups.
