Date and time: Sunday 12th April — 13:00

Add your name to this list if you can make it in April. Note that people of all ages are welcome!

Please also invite any London Wikipedia people you know (or have had wiki dealings with) – spread the word!

About the meet up[edit]

The Penderel's Oak in Holborn
Location of The Penderel's Oak

A social gathering for Wikipedia enthusiasts. Where we...

  • Eat Sunday lunch and drink some beers (although beer isn't required, nor is 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 Wikipedians will also feel welcome and safe.

Alcohol consumption is certainly not required!

Location: Penderel's Oak[edit]

The Penderel's Oak is a Wetherspoons pub in Holborn.
Address: 283-288 High Holborn, London, WC1V 7HP (OSM) (GMap)(51°31.090′N 0°06.940′W / 51.518167°N 0.115667°W / 51.518167; -0.115667)

It's easy to find us - we're on the large tables immediately opposite as one enters the pub.

Getting there[edit]

Penderel's Oak is between Holborn tube station (Piccadilly line and Central Line) and Chancery Lane tube station (Central Line). Farringdon tube station (Metropolitan Line, Hammersmith & City Line and Circle Line) is not too far (0.5 miles), nor is City Thameslink (0.6 miles).

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

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