Looks like it might be interesting especially as it might feature some hardware related workshops. The basic announcement below was adapted very slightly from the emailed press release:-

On Saturday October 12th, 2013 Rugby Linux Users Group will hold its annual Software Freedom Day event to promote the benefits of software freedom to the local community.

Running from 12pm - 4pm at the Lawrence Sheriff School (Clifton Road, Rugby, CV21 3AG) the event will feature a variety of hands-on workshops, displays and presentations.
