Saturday Night

Can we have a pub quiz Saturday night? Jon Davies (not logged in)

Ooh, that sounds nice. Let see what we can do. :) KTC (talk) 14:27, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Anyone driving from Manchester?

Is anyone driving to this from Manchester? If you are, and you've got space in your car for me, I'd appreciate it if I could tag along with you. Of course I'd be happy to pay my share of fuel costs. Thanks. --Deskana (talk) (email) 14:52, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

I'm driving there from Manchester, probably going on Friday and returning on Sunday - I'd be happy to offer lifts if that helps. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 16:13, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
Correction: I'm not going directly to Lincoln from Manchester, so can't offer lifts there, but can offer lifts back to Manchester on the Sunday. Mike Peel (talk) 17:51, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Desipte what Google Maps tell people, it is possible to skip step 4-6. In fact, it would actually be less potentially confusing that way as the right turn in step 5 is quite easy to miss if you haven't been before. -- KTC (talk) 19:14, 3 June 2013 (UTC)


What are the car parking arrangements at the venue? Andy Mabbett (User:Pigsonthewing); Andy's talk; Andy's edits 14:02, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

I think there might be some parking at the venue, but if there is, it will be limited (Katie is in touch with the point of contact at the venue, so I'll draw her attention to this). There are various public car parks in Lincoln, including some quite close to the venue. See WikiConference UK 2013/Getting to Lincoln and Parkopedia. Harry Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 14:39, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
There should be space for car parking at the venue. See this map for options. The venue one's are free of charge, but you would likely require to speak to someone through an intercom and say you're in for a conference at Deans to be let in. Katie Chan (WMUK) (talk) 15:52, 3 June 2013 (UTC)


The feedback from the event has been compiled and can be viewed at File:WikiConference UK 2013 feedback.pdf. -- Katie Chan (WMUK) (talk) 15:22, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
