BarCamp Oxford is happening on April 4-5 this year! Like other BarCamps, this will be a loosely organized "unconference", where every attendee is a participant and the sequence of events is decided by consensus: as the BarCamp site declares, "no spectators, only participants."
I'm really pleased that this has got off the ground. There's funding for a great venue---the Oxford University Club---and hopefully more will be forthcoming. The attendee list is nearly half full, and it was only announced late last week. Stick your name down if you'd like to join in the fun.
The current plan is for Saturday April 4 to start late and sociable, with a meal somewhere in Oxford (yet to be decided). For Saturday night, there's a list of crash space on the wiki page for out-of-towners. Then on Sunday the whole day will be at the University Club. It's a great place for talks, workshops and just general unhurried chat. In the evening there'll probably be a pub trip to round things off. If I can still stand, there will definitely be a pub trip.
