A warm welcome to Bristol WordPress People
We are a group of nearly 900 members who get together to connect about all things WordPress.
Our events are free, friendly and very casual. If you are looking to network or learn about WordPress then we’d love to meet you.
We are proud of the diversity of our group and welcome everyone whatever your level of experience with WordPress. With around 50 people at each event, you are bound to find someone in the same boat as you!
Why not come along on the first Tuesday of the month to meet us at Runway East Bristol.
Our events usually feature two talks from our group members or guest speakers, who share new ideas, personal stories and expert tips. Occasionally we run other events such as lightning talks, Q&A sessions or support nights.
There’s always plenty of time before, after and in between the talks to meet new people or catch up with existing contacts and friends.
Our talk topics are diverse
The range of talks each month reflects the diversity of our group, and we cater for WordPress experts and beginners alike. We aim to keep things fresh by looking at WordPress from different perspectives. This includes the most prominent topics of development, design and blogging, but also draws on areas such as business, UX and accessibility, digital tools and frameworks, coding techniques, social media and personal stories from our community.
Some of the best talks from our group have been stories of how people, businesses and brands have grown and reached success, largely because of what we are able to do with WordPress. We welcome everyone within our community to give a talk if they would like to – talk to our team for more information.

*If you find you can no longer make this meeting please do change your RSVP. As we provide food for these events it is helpful for us to know what number to cater for and of course to ensure that the waitlist is kept as short as possible. Thanks.
Please arrive from 6.30pm. You will be greeted by our friendly and knowledgeable volunteers who will help you get your name badge and get settled in. We aim to start the talks at around 7pm so there’s plenty of time to meet our other members, get a drink 🍻 and have a graze from the buffet 🥪 we provide thanks to our generous sponsors.
We usually start the night off with some updates about what’s happening in the local and national WordPress community and members are welcome to add their own updates. Speak to one of the organisers wearing a red name badge before we start if you’d like to say or ask something.
After the first talk we take a break and then have our second talk. Following that if you want to stick around a few of us usually hang around for another drink and chat. The talks usually finish around ⌚ 9.15pm (ish).
