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.
