A Birmingham Ubuntu Global Jam is being held on Friday 2nd October,
Saturday 3rd October and Sunday 4th October 2009 at The Linux Emporium
Offices which are at Minworth, Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham.

To quote from the wiki page,
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGlobalJam?action=show&redirect=GlobalJam :

"The Ubuntu Global Jam is an incredible opportunity for the Ubuntu
community to unite together around the weekend of 2nd - 4th Oct 2009 to
work together to improve Ubuntu. Everyone is able to contribute to the
Jam, and everyone is welcome and encouraged to get involved. Curious
about how to make a real difference to Ubuntu? This is a great chance to
make that difference.

Each event has one or more of our four themes:
    Bugs - finding, triaging and fixing bugs.
    Testing - testing the new release and reporting your feedback.
    Documentation - writing documentation about how to use Ubuntu and
how to join the community.
    Translations - translating Ubuntu and helping to make it available
in everyone's local language.
    Packaging - work on Ubuntu packages and improve them
    Other - other types of contribution such as marketing, packaging,
advocacy etc."

.. which makes about 6 or so themes! Although we'll probably concentrate
on triaging and maybe fixing bugs. There will be experts on hand to
explain how to do it.
