Informal chitchat with no set agenda. If the weather is reasonable, we may go for a walk after lunch to take photos. You can email Harry if you're arriving later and want to know where we are.

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

About the meet up[edit]

The Bright Helm pub.

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

  • Drink coffee and/or beer and possibly have lunch.
  • Chat about Wikipedia and any other topics we fancy.
  • Go for a walk (weather dependent!) and look at notable local features

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.

Look for Wikipedia-themed hoodies or t-shirts. You can email Harry if you're not sure.


The Bright Helm is a Wetherspoons pub on West Street, between the railway station and the seafront. The station is just under ten minutes' walk away. West Street is served by many buses heading for the station; many other buses stop within walking distance. Wifi and food are available in the pub.
