About the Event Calendar category

This category contains the event calendar and replies that populate it. Please read the instructions before posting an event.

It’s not possible to create new topics in this category, only replies to the event calendar topic are permitted.

To add an event:

  • create a new reply to Event Calendar
  • add a short title on the first line - this description will be shown on the calendar
  • you must use the ‘insert date’ button to add the start and end date of the event or it won’t appear in the calendar
  • add a URL for the event if there is one

Your reply should look something like this:

Newark Classic Bike Show

[date-range from=2023-01-07 to=2023-01-08 timezone="Europe/London"]


Yiu can add more details after standard lines above but note this is not a discussion category. Posts not announcing an event will be removed or moderated out to another area.

Each event must be in a separate reply.

It’s currently a limitation of the calendar that dates are only in US format. Beware when using the Week view.
