About the meet up
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.
How to spot us
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 at the back or on the terrace if the pub is crowded. There is a downstairs bar but we don't plan to meet there as we want people to be able to find us easily.
First Great Western operate services between London and south Wales, west and south-west England to Reading railway station. Services between London-Paddington and Reading usually only take around 25 minutes (look for the high-speed trains). South West Trains operate services between London-Waterloo and Reading, ideal for those in south-west Greater London and east Berkshire. Cross Country services reach Reading from Hampshire and Dorset in the south, and the Midlands and Manchester from the North.
Kings Road is close to Reading town centre and a five or ten minute walk from the station. The pub is on the south side of the road just past the Christian Science Reading Room.
