London Calling

London Calling 2021 (GC8JAYF) was the city’s first Geocaching Mega Event. It took place on 28 August 2021, at Methodist Central Hall. Cachers from all over the UK and around the world attended, with more than with the event becoming the largest Geocaching event ever to take place in the city.

It is only with the support of the geocaching community in London, the UK and around the world that we will be able to continue to bring Mega events to London. Although Covid hampered the ability of many to travel to London Calling 2021, we hope to see you all at a future event.

London Calling 2021
We’re probably close to our final numbers of attended logs now. We’re pleased to say that we had just over 700 attendees who purchased tickets, and this equated to 561 Attended logs on our listing on geocaching.com.So what does that mean for London Calling? It’s a big success, as those numbers have to be taken in the context of the ongoing pandemic and how that affected our numbers in the end, especially with the expected international turnout being unable to attend for the vast majority.There have been a total of 34 Megas in the UK to date, and according to Project-GC, this places London Calling 2021 as 20th best attended, pretty much right in the middle. If we get another seven attended logs, then it’ll push us up to 17th, which is exactly in the middle. So what’s the aim now? Take on feedback. Plan for bigger and better, of course. We’re not ready to announce anything formally yet, apart from stating that we’re not running a Mega in 2022 – we’re instead looking forward to attending the Geolympix as the UK’s third Mega for that year. For everything else, watch this space. See MoreSee Less
