Food and Drink/Registration
It has come to our attention that many of the food outlets on the main Edgbaston campus will be closed on 18th April due it being Good Friday. We have therefore decided to provide a modest lunch (sandwiches) for those who have registered to attend the conference. Due to a limited budget we will not be able to provide lunch for those who have not registered. There will also be complimentary tea and coffee making facilities available.
If you wish to bring your own lunch/sandwiches then please feel free to do so. Although we have been advised that they will not be able to cater for a large group, there may also be the opportunity for a few of you to buy hot food and refreshments at the beautiful Winterbourne House and Gardens, which is a 5 minute walk from the Arts Building. See the link below for details about Winterbourne House and Gardens:
We would like to remind those wishing to attend the conference that it is free of charge but registration is mandatory and places are limited.
