On my visit on Wednesday 22 January 2014 I sampled many fine ales, including beers from Marble, JW Lees and Joseph Holt.

The festival runs until 25 January 2014.

UK WordPress unconference number 7 announced

Arrangements for the seventh annual WordPress UK weekend unconference have been announced.

As previously, the location and content for the 2014 event will be determined by the participants.

The weekend will be the follow-up to WordCamp Lancaster UK 2013.

On behalf of the WPUK Core Group, I’ve issued details of how to propose the city and venue for the event, along with how to post content ideas, on the WPUK site.

The WordPress weekend is scheduled to take place 12-13 July 2014, and is produced by WPUK.
