Thanks to all the advice all, I'm (still) working with people from the venue I've been looking at, yes they have whiteboards and wifi :)

And anyone want to cook lunch? :P (Still working on that one, depending on the venue, we might be going out for lunch somewhere, depending if the venue want to supply lunch/give us access to their kitchen.

Lewis: if your certain of the date & are sure the venue won't be an issue I will try and drum up some trade on Wikipedia.

Per previous, I am still interested in this, though I would probably attend for a day (no overnight), but we'll see.
No point getting a large place though, if it's still such a short list. Even a packed 20-seater would be better than an empty 80-seater, I guess.
But on the upside, it can still be a success even with low numbers of attendees and I'm looking forward to it :)

But I suggest not doing any geonotices until you have booked at a venue and put it on the meetup page.

I don't know if Brighton has a Linux User Group? But they might be interested (and also may have suggestions for venues and other helpful stuff).

The only really important thing in a venue is the WiFi ;)

As to advertising; post on the Bot Owners Noticeboard.

Sorry about that - the dates have been at http://uk.wikimedia.org/wiki/Meetings for a while, but I only realised that they weren't on the events page this morning.

I can't spot it on the online system - did you apply online or by post?

I'm sure you'll fill it in the end - it'll just take a little work to get people's attentions. ;-) Another thought - it would probably be worth contacting university computer science departments to see if they have anyone interested in coming along and learning how to contribute to mediawiki. Similarly other UK tech groups.
