Free Multimedia using Linux Workshop – Wednesday 28th June 2023

@ Tesco Hereford, Bewell Street Community Room

Hi everyone

It’s been quite a while since our last in person workshop event, but I’m pleased to announce that finally we will be having one ! 

Charlie has been good enough to volunteer to give us a talk / workshop on the Linux and multimedia applications. 

The following applications and more will be featured. He works with these applications professionally using Linux, and no longer requires Windows or Mac to do his work.

  • Kdenlive – Video creating and editing
  • Krita – Bitmap editing
  • Blender – 3D modelling and video editing tool
  • Etc

This FREE workshop will be at the Tesco Hereford, Bewell Street’s community room kindly arranged by Tim.

Date  : Wednesday 28th June 2023

Time : From 7pm

Car parking: will be available at the Tesco car park.  On previous visits to the community room Tim has arranged free parking for our event, but this will be confirmed on a later email.

I will also setup an Etherpad soon to help organise the event.

Please comment with any questions or ideas for inclusion in the event.

Look forward to seeing you Wednesday 28th June !

Hi everyone

Our first full indoor Herefordshire LUG meet up of the year will be Wednesday night at 7.30pm, at the much refurbished Courtyard in Hereford. I understand the mezzanine floor is now used for the posh restaurant, so we’ll meet in the expanded Cafe Bar on the ground floor. Hope we can get a good number at the first real meeting for quite a while, and the first back at the Courtyard for even longer.

Please bring any Linux/Open Source goodies or kit you have.

If you have been on our list, or heard of us from Meetup but haven’t attended a meeting yet, or you’ve been unable to attend for a while, we’d be very pleased to see you.

                             –  Gather ideas/start to plan for a Workshop event in next 2-3 months time.

Charlie has volunteered to run this, we had some ideas that were started at the last meet in Kingsland so will want to expand on this,  any others please come along and get involved. Probably back at Leominster at some point.

Hope that many of you can make it on Wednesday evening.

Don’t forget that we can only meet indoors in tables of six with no mingling between the tables, so probably best if you can reply to the lug email to let me know if you’re coming.

If the weather is better we can meet outside with less restrictions. Let’s hope we can keep meeting here for a good long while now.


I’ll see you all then at 7.30pm (ish). I start my new job on Wednesday too, so big day for me.
