We have a room with a private bar booked for the evening from around 6.30pm (they need to turn the main room around so this time is dependent on when the conference finishes). In the  evening there will be a hot buffet available: £15 per adult £8 per child and this needs to be booked in advance via the CdLS office - payment via CAF and JustGiving as per registration fees. There will be some entertainment. We need you to persuade Ryan to put his sparkly jacket on and be quizmaster again!

The full programme will be announced nearer the time but we can promise the usual world leading expertise with our speakers and consults. There will be a workshop in the afternoon and many other points of information - watch this space for updates. We hope to see you there!
