Informal chitchat with no set agenda.

If you have some ideas for discussion topics, please put them below.

About the meet up[edit]

The West Quay, Brighton.

A social gathering for Wikimedia enthusiasts, where we...

  • Drink coffee and/or beer and some of us have Sunday lunch.
  • Chat about Wikipedia and any other topics we fancy.

Mainly a casual social event. You can expect to meet some very keen Wikipedians, however this is also an open invitation to anyone interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, projects re-using Wikipedia, and other collaborative wiki projects. Feel free to come along and raise these discussions over a beer. Alcohol consumption is optional.

Hey, this is *great* news! Can we help at the office by pinging a quick email around to donors who might be interested in attending and live relatively near by? Katherine Bavage (WMUK) (talk) 11:56, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
Missed this message until now Katherine. Yes, good idea. Philafrenzy (talk) 23:44, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Location[edit]

The West Quay is a Wetherspoons pub overlooking Brighton Marina. Wifi and food are available.

How to spot us[edit]

It's easy to find us, look for anyone with a laptop out or a Wikipedia lapel badge or similar. We plan on being as close to the entrance as possible but may be further in or upstairs if the pub is crowded.
