Microsoft Data Platform User Groups in the UK

This is a list of all the UK-based Microsoft data platform user groups I know about, including those devoted exclusively to Microsoft Fabric and Power BI. If you know of a group that isn't on this list, please let me know.

  • Groups with names in bold are members of the global Azure Data Community or Microsoft Fabric Community. If your group isn't already a member of the Azure Data Tech Groups program, you may wish to consider applying to join.

  • Groups with italicised locations appeared only to be meeting online when I last checked.

  • Where I can find them, links are to groups' meetup.com pages, otherwise to their Fabric Community User Group page.
