Registration for the conference is only £120*, and includes a registration pack; lunch on both days; a social event, dinner and drinks on the Wednesday evening; and abundant tea, coffee and biscuits throughout. Register here…

*£120 is the early bird rate, available until 26 June, after which the fee will be £250.


When you register, you will be given the option of booking accommodation for the nights of 25, 26 and/or 27 August, either in student halls (single-occupancy rooms at £45 per night, including breakfast) or at the Holiday Inn Express (single, double or twins rooms at £71 per room per night, including breakfast). Both are only a few minutes walk from the conference venue. Alternatively, you are of course welcome to arrange your own accommodation at one of the many local hotels, guesthouses or bed & breakfasts.
