This is the organisation page for the second Liverpool Wikimedia meetup. The first-ever Liverpool meetup was remarkably well-attended and so we decided to hold another one, only in a proper pub where we can drink proper beer! A wikimeet is a social gathering for Wikimedia enthusiasts. Where we...

  • Chat about Wikipedia, Wikimedia and any other topics we fancy.
  • Eat lunch and drink some beers (although beer isn't required, nor is lunch)

Wikimeets are mainly casual social events. You can expect to meet some very keen Wikipedians, however this is also an open invite for anyone interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, projects re-using Wikipedia, and other collaborative wiki projects. Also wiki technology, MediaWiki, or discussing the business impact of mass collaboration. Anything of interest to Wikipedia:WikiProject Merseyside will also be relevant here. Feel free to come along and raise these discussions over a beverage of your choice.

We normally meet in a quiet, family-friendly pub - so hopefully younger Wikimedians will also feel welcome and safe.

Alcohol consumption is certainly not required!
