London Wikimedia Meetup Number 68[edit]

Date and time: Sunday 14th April 2013 — 13:00 onwards[edit]

Location: Penderel's Oak Pub, Holborn, London WC1[edit]

GLAM WIKI 2013[edit]

GLAM-WIKI_2013 is taking place over the weekend (on Friday and Saturday, with a hackathon on Sunday 14th April)

Location of the group[edit]

Look for us at a large set of tables opposite the door, we are the group with multiple laptops. If you are on a table with no laptops and everyone is talking about philosophy you are on the wrong table.

Attendees[edit]

Add your name to this list if you can make it to our sixty-eighth meeting. Note that people of all ages and all Wikimedia projects are welcome!

Please also invite any London Wikimedia people you know (or have had wiki dealings with) – spread the word!

About the meetup[edit]

The Penderel's Oak in Holborn
Location of The Penderel's Oak

London meetups are generally casual social events where we...

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

You can expect to meet some very keen Wikimedians, however this is also an open invite for anyone interested in finding out more about Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects such as Wikimedia Commons, Wikiversity and WikiSource.

The pub is quite quiet and family friendly on a Sunday lunchtime, so younger Wikimedians will also feel welcome and safe. Alcohol consumption is not compulsory!

Location: Penderel's Oak[edit]

The Penderel's Oak is a Wetherspoons pub in Holborn.
Address: 283-288 High Holborn, London, WC1V 7HP (OSM) (GMap)

It's easy to find us – we're usually the crowd with several laptops on the large tables straight ahead of you when you enter the pub. If not look for a laptop logged into Wikipedia, or with a Wikimedia logo on it.

Getting there[edit]

 
Central line
 
Chancery Lane
(closed on 14 September)
0.2 miles
Central line
Piccadilly line
Holborn
Circle line
Hammersmith & City line
Metropolitan line
Farringdon 0.5 miles

The Penderel's Oak is between Holborn tube station and Chancery Lane tube station. Farringdon tube station is not too far, nor is City Thameslink (0.6 miles), albeit this station is closed on Sundays. The pub is also within walking distance of Waterloo railway station (1.3 miles) and St Pancras railway station (1.2 miles). Note that Chancery Lane station will be closed for station upgrade work on 14 September.

Several bus routes also go directly to Holborn station; if travelling from Waterloo, it is quicker to travel by bus than by tube.

Bike hire (TfL scheme) is in Red Lion Street, just opposite the pub.

Visit the TfL Journey Planner for more information about your fastest route.

Back-up plan[edit]

In the rare event of a kitchen closure or another problem at the Penderel's Oak, the meetup will be relocated to the Shakespeare's Head – another Wetherspoons pub located nearby. To get there from the Penderel's Oak, when exiting onto the street turn left, then when walking past Holborn tube station turn left again down Kingsway, and after a short walk the pub will be found on the left-hand side.
