Christmas Party 2010

December 2010 starts on a Wednesday, causing the 3rd Tuesday of the Month to be very near Christmas, so we will have our December 2010 meeting a week earlier, on Tuesday, 14th December.

This meeting is our Christmas Party but we will use the opportunity to review the year gone and discuss next year.

  • Discussion: MFS: Review of year gone. Discussion on next year.
  • Participants: Michael Dorrington and other interested parties (hopefully that's you!).
  • Location: Madlab. (Manchester Digital Laboratory). Upstairs.
  • Address: 36-40 Edge Street, Manchester. M4 1HN.
  • Date: Tuesday, 14th December 2010 (2nd (not normal 3rd!) Tuesday of the month)
  • Start time: 19:00
  • Finish time: 20:30

Then we'll go for drinks (and maybe food if people want that) until late.


The purpose of Manchester Free Software is to promote the Free Software philosophy. So how did we do in 2010? What can you do in 2011?


The meeting will take place at the usual time (but a week earlier than normal!), 7pm, at Madlab on Edge Street in the Northern Quarter. "(Between Thomas St and the Craft Centre, opposite A Bar Called Common)". We will be located upstairs. The venue provides wifi. The talk is followed by an informal discussion in the bar opposite (A Place Called Common).



Around the venue there are parking meter bays that become zero cost after 6pm on Tuesday but get full up. There are paid parking lots around the venue, the light blue P in this OpenStreetMap centred on Madlab. A lot of them, perhaps all, are are owned by NCP. If you can't decide otherwise then park in Manchester Arndale.

Public Transport

Manchester Victoria (MCV) train station, Shudehill tram station and Manchester Piccadilly bus station are all fairly close to Madlab, see OpenStreetMap centred on Madlab. Manchester Piccadilly (MAN) train station and Manchester Central Coach Station are not too far either.
