London Wikimedia Meetup Number 173[edit]

Weather permitting, an in-person meetup(!) outdoors

Date and time: Sunday 11 July 2021 13:00—16:30
(join at any time you can, no need to stay for the whole afternoon)

Location: Lincoln's Inn Fields, opposite the Sir John Soane's museum
Coordinates: 51.51663184°, -0.11718529°
Nearest tube station is Holborn

(If the weather isn't looking suitable, we'll fall back to a Zoom call instead. I'll ping attendees if needed)


After discussing at the previous meetup, we agreed to try and have an outdoor London meetup in July, since the rule of 6 will still be in effect indoors. We settled on Lincoln's Inn Fields, which is close to our previous habitual location (the Penderel's Oak pub) and has plenty of space, and public conveniences.

(Note that this isn't the end of virtual meetups! We'll continue hosting them too, usually on the 4th Sunday of each month, for those who can't make it to London)

You can expect to meet some very keen Wikimedians, and complete newbies are also welcome, as is anyone interested in finding out more about Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects.

Please invite any Wikimedia people you know (or have had wiki dealings with) who might be interested – spread the word!

Update[edit]

Joseph2302, Ritchie333, Andrew Davidson, Robidy, Cielquiparle, ClemRutter: Forecast for tomorrow looks good, so we're on! I'll aim to be at the coordinates above just before 1, and will have some form of Wikipedia clothing on for those who might not recognise me otherwise. I also think we should aim to end by 4:30 to better avoid the football crowds.

I'll be bringing a few beers, cokes, and crisps/biscuits, feel free to bring anything else you might want. We checked and drinking alcohol is permitted in the park. I'm also bringing a picnic blanket, but if anyone else can bring one that would be great. And I can provide a wifi hotspot if people want to use laptops etc.

To those who aren't attending, I can totally understand. When picking this date I don't think any of us expected England to be in the final, and all that might bring. Hope to see some of you at Meetup/UK virtual/2 on 25 July, or a future IRL one! the wub "?!" 20:39, 10 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I was in Pendrel's Oak on Sunday briefly. Aside from protective screens and table service only, it's pretty much as I remember it being for the last 25 years or so. Ritchie333 (talk) 11:24, 29 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
