  1. Most likely. Inlandmamba (fruitful thought) 19:11, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
  2. I would like to come along to one of these, so I will try... Guineveretoo
  3. should be there, but not early on. Johnbod (talk) 17:09, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
  4. I shall be there but on the early shift Jon Davies (WMUK) (talk) 09:28, 5 December 2012 (UTC). For what it is worth prefer the old place. More spacious feel and lighter.
  5. Almost certainly Edwardx (talk) 00:26, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
  6. See you soon ;) Natkabrown (talk) 17:27, 8 December 2012 (UTC)


  1. I'm going to miss this one - more family commitments Leutha (talk)
  2. I've developed a corneal ulcer in my right eye, which is impacting on my eye sight and is requiring intense anti-bacterial treatment so it really isn't appropriate me to come, as much as I wanted to see this new choice of pub! See you all in January, hopefully. CT Cooper · talk 22:16, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
  3. I'm running out of time to handle Christmas stuff, so I will have to miss this one. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 23:39, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
  4. Just a quick half today Gordo (talk)

About the meet up[edit]

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 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. Feel free to come along and raise these discussions over a beer.

The pub is quite quiet and family friendly on a Sunday lunchtime, so hopefully younger Wikimedians will also feel welcome and safe.

Location: Shakespeare's Head[edit]

The Shakespeare's Head is a wetherspoon pub in Holborn.
Address: Africa House 64-68 Kingsway Holborn, London WC2B 6BG

It's easy to find us - we're usually the crowd with several laptops - look for a laptop logged into Wikipedia, or with a Wikimedia logo on it.

Getting there[edit]

The Shakespeare's Head is a short walk from Holborn Tube station. The pub is just over a mile walk from St Pancras railway station.

Several bus routes also go directly to Holborn station; if travelling from Waterloo, it is quicker to travel by bus (1, 59, 68, 171, 188, 243 or 521) than tube. Routes 8, 25 and 242 stop outside the pub.

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