Wikithon: “Old” and “New” Loughborough

From Free


This Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon will help local people to connect with their past, through a well-structured activity that necessitates only basic digital skills. In the first hour you will hear all about the Open Access movement and learn all about how to edit a Wikipedia entry. In hours two and three you will have the chance to create or edit a page about a figure associated with Loughborough. We will help suggest suitable figures or you can come to the session with a person in mind. We’d like to focus in particular on neglected women in Loughborough’s history. You’ll leave with new skills you can use on subjects, figures, and events of your choosing in the future.

IMPORTANT NOTE. This event will now take place online. Ticket holders will be emailed a link to connect to the event the day before it is held. 


  • I have not received my ticket via email. What should I do?

    The first thing to do is check your spam/junk filters and inboxes. Your tickets were sent as an attachment and can be thought of as spam by some email services. Alternatively, you can always find your tickets in your Billetto account that you can access in the browsers or the dedicated Billetto app. For more help with this, read here.

  • I wish to cancel my ticket and receive a refund. What should I do?

    The approval of refunds is entirely at the event organiser’s discretion, and you should get in contact with the event organiser to discuss what options are available to you. To get in touch with the event organiser, simply reply to your order confirmation email or use the "Contact organiser" form on the organiser's profile. For more help with this, read here.

  • I have registered on the waiting list, what happens now?

    If more tickets become available you will be notified (by email) amongst others who have joined the list. Purchasing is on a first-come first-serve basis. For more information, read here.

  • Where do I find a link to an online event?

    Check your order confirmation page or order confirmation email. Usually, the organiser of the event provides the details in the order confirmation email or they might send you a follow-up email with a link to their online event. You might also want to read the event description on Billetto where an event organiser should describe how to join the event online. For more information on this, read here.

  • What is refund protection and why would I need it?

    Refund Protection provides you with the assurance that if unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances interfere with your ability to attend an event you can claim a refund. For more information on this, read here.
