To book your place, please complete and return the registration form with payment. There will be two options: residential £70 for the two day event including overnight stay (Saturday) in College accommodation (Reid Hall of Residence, single en suite rooms, full English breakfast included) and non-residential £20 for those who don’t need overnight accommodation but will attend the day events. (Optional Friday night accommodation for an additional £50).

Registration includes tea/coffee breaks, but not lunches, on Saturday and Sunday. Lunch can be bought on campus. We plan to go out for a dinner on Saturday evening, all pay their own way.
