Welcome to the Bristol and Bath Linux User Group

We are an informal group of Linux enthusiasts from Bristol, Bath and surrounding areas. We meet monthly and run a mailing list.


Due to Coronavirus all physical meetings at our usual venue are suspended. for details of an alternative, see the calendar or click here.

Our usual venue:
We meet at the Ye Shakespeare Pub in Victoria St, BS1; just around the corner from the Temple Meads Station . Click here for details for the lug meeting venue.

Our usual (pre-covid) venue has closed down and LUG has yet to choose a replacement venue, for when in-person meetings/socials restart (current as of Nov 2021).
